    Hip is feeling great, I'm up and about, moving around on crutches, I went to the store with my brother the other night, I have a leg machine that moves it up and down, keeps the hip moving and it makes it feel great.... I think I'll be able to drive around the end of February or so

    ive been doing pt 3 times a week, and havn't really done much to the mini lately

    I need to put the front arches back on but they have just been sitting and sitting

    ive been having some trouble with the wilwood masters on the car
    I was so upset with the masters that I told the VP of wilwood they make shitty parts


    back in the middle of Feb, my dad drove me from San Diego to Tucson
    and we towed this toy back to my garage

    the front suspension is based on a 2wd s10, its been Z'ed 3 inches and the frame rails are 2x3 3/16




    the rear suspension is like a tri-3 link
    and the rear frame rails that I'm working on

    I'm going to lower the truck as much as I can

    I haven't posted anything here for a little bit of time

    I got some new injectors for the mini, some rdx injectors and will need to get a re tune for it, they are 410cc's
    so no driving the mini right now, plus its still super hot here in AZ, and the car don't have AC, so I wait for the winter to roll around again

    ive been working on the frame for my project 37 chevy truck

    its close to being a rolling chassis now
    the motor and trans is bolted into the frame, I still need to pull the motor to finish welding the motor mounts

    I picked up s10 blazer front suspension with rotors and calipers with new upper control arms and the lowers had new ball joints
    $145 out the door



    this is the 1st time the frame saw the sun, and then it went back in for motor mounts and trans mount

    I made the trans cross member out of some .95 wall 1.5in dom tube and used a poly bushings on it with a thin wall tube
    the motor mounts are made out of some 1/4 wall 2in dom tube and 3/16 plate with poly bushings



    my dad gave me a wc early 90's f-body t-5 trans and my brother gave me the Lakewood bell housing and a new 11inch clutch disc

    the Lakewood needed some .007 offset dowel pins to line it up

    i have the axle tabs welded onto the rear axle and the lower link bars are bolted in, tomorrow's plan is to get the front suspension bolted on and stick some wheels onto it

    i haven't made the upper link bar for the axle yet because i need to set ride height

    and I'm still working on the plan for the rear coils, not sure if I'm going to air bag it with a shock, or coilovers, or coils with shocks

    trying to get the 37's chassis into a roller before i have my left side hip surgery end of Sept
    drove this last time i was home, vortec carb 350 with a 5 speed

    I havn't posted here in a bit

    I ordered new master cylinders for my brake system, because the old master cylinders suck, I wasn't happy with them

    and wilwood uses a funky 7/16-20 fitting that's kind of long

    so I ordered the long fittings and had a local fitting store build me some custom fittings out of the fitting I ordered

    so I have three custom built fittings for my new master cylinders

    I have mounted two of the masters but I havn't installed the fittings or got the lines to connect to the brake res that's mounted on the firewall

    I took on a big block ford swap in a 72 f250, and that turned into a major project but I'm making some $$ out of the deal

    extra $$ will help buy supplies and parts for the 37 and the rhd mini

    I'm heading to SD at the end of April,
    I'm going the weekend before Steve's mini meet, and driving back the following weekend probably wont happen

    so Steve, I'm gonna try and make it out to your place and see what you have going on at the end of April

    if I can get the lhd mini brake master fitted and whatnot, I will drive that car out to your house
    its still in San Diego at my parents pad, from the mini west show last summer,
    I knocked out the head gasket at the end of Jan earlier in the year

    and now the master cylinder is acting up on that car, have to pump up the pedal before it builds pressure

    have it waiting in San Diego for me to swap

    on those wildwood fittings, we just buy 7/16 bolts about an inch long, chuck them up on the threads with a split collet adapter, so the threaded end is out, then drill a quarter inch hole through it and champher the end to seal on a copper flare tube. costs about 10 cents per bolt. (no pressure here so no big deal.)
