I was actually telling Danno about that on Sunday. ET and I had a discussion Saturday Night about that very concept.

The A to C actually came out pretty damn dead nuts on both. I was pretty surprised that after 5 bends with rotation on each on, that they'd be that close. I messed up one bend on mine & had to sleeve it last night. Rotated + instead of - degrees on the small bend behind the dash.

I should have that little angle finder on my front porch tonight.

On a bad note. A notcher will have to wait till I get home from Florida.

Thanks man. Harlan was a blast. Alot of built rigs with us on that trip. I wish someone had video of me on valve stem there. After I gave it hell everyone was wondering how I did not break my **** on it.
I was reving the engine to spool the turbo, slipping the clutch to not roll back and dumping it. I did that at least 8 times. It was narly.

That spot was very tricky

Also is your rig sitting lower in the KY photos then the moab?
You are correct that is BFE. Unfortunately I did not make that climb. I tried it for about 20 mins. Every time it kept sliding me in the rock on the left. Those weren't my doors so I didn't want to mess them up. Next time I go I am sure I can make that climb.

I have not changed the pressure in the ORI's since moab. So it should be the same height. I do need to tune them alittle this year.

On another note. The temps are rising around here. Going to pick up a qt of gear oil and some nuts and bolts today. In hopes I can drive Jeffery to work next week.

Im trying my best. I have had some bad luck with the shop I was supposed to be renting out. The guy turned all shady on me and I have been searching for a new place ever since. I just found a house with a 2.5 car garage and 220v in it so I will be checking that out this week. If I had a shop you would have it by now. Sorry about all this.

A little sneak of almost the final rev. Once this is done I can start to work on my jeep model.

What is the weight balance on a setup like that?

Completely non jeep related, but I am pretty proud of it is, that I made an Air Bag Controller for a buddy of mine at work this last weekend. Its going on his Audi. There will be 3 define heights and then an Auto feature that will re level the weight in the car is shifted (still a work in progress)

Breadboard - Proto

Finished - Proto

All wire are on the bottom side so it looks clean from the outside.


Now just waiting for him to mount the sensor so I can fine tune the code.

Apparently you've got too much time on your hands.

Any news on the new place with the garage?
