I'm getting ready to order new belts for my rig. What do you think about the ones you got after looking them.

Got the new motor/trans pulled today after baseball games. Gonna give it a good shout bath several times tomorrow weather permitting. After a good bath gonna start pulling all the EFI crap off it and start putting my propane stuff on it.

If the bars don't line up, and/or intersect a joint, it is not triangulated. They are simply diagonal bars.
Agreed. But for an every day rig I like the over kill of this. Keep up the work and post more pic's

Ya im not racing it or plan on rolling it several times at once. This should be overkill for what im doing with it.

Finally got to mess with it a little today. Got the front four link done and put it at full bump. Once I work on the front tube work and cut some bars out of the way. I’ll be able to drop it down a few more inches. Or I’ll leave it alone and move the radiator to the front. So the back of the chassis doesn’t stick out that far. Haven’t decide which way I want to go yet. The front driveshaft is gonna be a tight fit but it will fit. 90644E18-48FC-46A6-8BD1-F7B5D82587CE.jpeg02872227-53C8-4CB0-9A06-4C69F3B71011.jpeg72228EE3-59BD-4B90-92A7-405D68B9F46C.jpeg

Had a few honey do’s to get done first before i could mess with the buggy. But did manage to go ahead and get the tube out of the way so i could drop it all the way down. The sub frame is 12” off the ground. I‘ll be able to run around 5-6” or so of up travel if i want to. The front drive shaft appears to have plenty of room.

Took this week off to work on the buggy. But plans changed and worked on the shop for the first 3 days of the week Built a rack to put stuff up on it that we don’t use all the time and to help open some space to store stuff for the buggy so I could use both my tables again. Here a before and after shot of the shop. I did rearrange a few things. Really like the way it’s setup now. Really opens the shop up more now I think.2EE3D2AC-9567-4790-AFC4-A8A1012A8D6B.jpeg

Now that the shop is done. I did work on the buggy for a little bit today. Hoping to pick up more tube tomorrow. But started on the front. The “hood” will have a little slope to it when it’s done. 805A59D1-B1AA-4E23-93E7-65CE5EF3C123.jpegC2817505-B09A-4DEF-8BA4-F166B5AF452D.jpeg

Looking good. On a side note, how do you like the spray foam on the shop vs regular insulation? Do you get any condensation when it's humid or raining?

I love it. The only thing I wish I would have done is let them paint it white. But I have always planned on building a wall to the same height has my new rack. Our house is done the same way and our electric bill hasn't be over $175 yet and we have been here 4 years now. I haven't seen any condensation on the walls yet but you can tell sometime with the concrete being a little bit of a different color if that make sense.
