View Full Version : Got laid off... S10 Build...

02-17-2010, 09:52 PM
At first I thought it was fucking bull shit, then it occured to me, EI can pay me to do what I want to do... So this is what EI has paid me to do for the past week. Keep in mind, I have NEVER, done anything to do with suspensions, AND NO its not done yet, but heres what I got so far... Sorry about the SHITTY cell phone pics.

Frame shortened 2.5' feet
Wheel Base shortened 8" (120" wheelbase now)
Frame boxed
Triangulated 4 Link - Creeper joints all around threaded into some 2" x 1/2" dom tube (dont know exact size)
16" - ORI ST struts
Diff rock rings front and rear
forgetting some stuff too.

Still need to:
Relocate fuel tank
Spare tire carrier
Full Exo-cage to be started when my tube comes in
Tool box for the box / ammo boxes to hold crap
Bob and re-fit box (also dove tailed)

AND a whole lot more shit... but work hasn't called me back and I couldn't love it more!
