It was two weekends ago on Holcomb Creek trail (3N93). We did the 3N15>3N14>3N93 loop it was a nice trip, it had rained the night before so no dust but very little standing water. 73 degrees, perfect!

The pics were really grainy looking - like 1989'ish...LOL!

Perhaps they were taken through a screen window/door?

Hi All. I painted the wheels gunmetal gray.... hammertone. Here is a pic where I tested the flex.... It still had more to go... did this idling up the ramps.

I've got a D44 in the front and D60 in the rear. Power via Chevy 350 and 350 3spd auto box. I had some issues to get disk brakes on the front. Had to modify my calipers to fit the Ford F250 disks.

Being in South Africa... you have to use what is available....

Next up.... I need to build pipe fenders for the front and do the "same style" spats for the rear. I must try and get my hands on a soft top.... But in SA it's not that easy.... I've done the bumpers for the front and rear but I'll be reworking them soon. ... I also need to build the spare wheel carrier and rear seat. I will then add a extension to the roll-bar for protection to the passengers.

Then lockers, maybe coils spring conversion

Hi I painted the wheels "Gun metal grey.... Hammertone" It's a rattle can spray , but the hammertone finish is more durable that normal lacquer spray in a can
