Time for an update.
Brake system is all rebuilt and bled. Scored some new shoes for it too! Replaced the original front ball bearings with modern tapered bearings and new seals. Next is suspension and electrical. Need to replace the sun rotten wiring. Its running great but it threw a belt on me and I noticed that the generator pulley is bent and the fan is missing a couple blades. Anybody have an extra one they'd like to sell to me?

Time for an update again. Been busy working on the buggy and my sons t-ball season started so time has been tight. Nonetheless I rebuilt the front end and installed new shocks. Cut off old mounting tabs and seat mounts. Laser cut and welded in new light mounts, ignition and switch box mounts, seat belt mounts, and mounts for this sweet bench seat I scored on Craigslist.

Got her back down on the ground and now I'm ready to rewire the entire car. Getting rid of the sun rotten wires, adding lights and moving the starter, ignition control box to a more user friendly position...not behind the drivers seat! My buddy sent me a cool pic of his dad having a "hold my beer and watch this" moment back in the day!

Finished the wiring last weekend in my brothers garage. Took it for a spin in the rain...I got soaked but what a blast! I've gotten the DMV paperwork started and I have an appointment this coming Monday with the CHP to have a VIN assigned. Now I'll be legal in the dirt and have a proper title
