I got this done yesterday and today:



Oh yeah, and also I bought a Harley



Yes, its a 1200C....feel free to make fun of me. I like it though...Saints colors--black and smoke gold!
People who hate on a 1200C haven't ridden one or are too big to be on one! My first Harley was a 2001 1200C. I am 5'9" and 150lbs. That thing would flat out fly. The power to weight ratio with that bike is outstanding.

I sold it for a '04 V-Rod and recently sold that for the '09 V-Rod Muscle I ride now. I still miss the Sporty from time to time.

Skerr!!! Missed you buddy. I gotta check up on your boys build at "work" tomorrow.

I have zero idea on the rimsas they came with the heep....the hub caps with the name are in a box somewhere which I haven't seen since I moved! They are very nice quality...looks like machined aluminum. It's wasted on me, I'm afraid. . I'd be happy with 40 dollar steel cragar knockoffs from discount tire.

If you have some decent 35s on some cheap wheels and you want to trade...by all means. My garage is open to everyone!

Damn! It was a chore drilling through your beefy crossmember! What's that thing made out of anyway!

Everything works great now though after a little modding...thanks so much for your awesome product...I know now for next time.

Speaking of awesome products....I wanna do a shoutout for Tom Woods driveshafts. Tom personally emailed me back and forth trying to get me all setup. I was a big dummy and did a lot of things wrong but he took care of me. I bought their NP208 SYE kit which was extremely beefy...I'm actually not sure if it was listed on their site, I called and asked if they had one.

People like Tom and Jason make this whole experience of trying to fix hard problems beginners like me have fruitful and fun...oh yeah also affordable.

My 35s are worn down to 33s! But I have a set of 5... count 'em (5) FIVE, NIB, Cragar Soft 8s that I wouldn't mind trading. However, they are 15X8. If that perks your interest then send me a PM. And Clay's build got bogged down in a LOT of BSing, but it has been fun. We will be doing an engine swap very soon. You keep going strong. I'm proud of your progress.

To install the sexy new driveshaft permanently I needed to roll out the diff to burn in the perches, as I showed y'all last time. When it was time to roll it back under and hook up the springs I noticed that something wasn't quite right:



I cant remember if we didn't make sure the shackles were installed correctly or if I did something different this time, but they would simply not fit and sing properly against the frame...so I had to modify them:



All done:



Before we put the tub back on I did a little bit of wiring--anything that was going to run along or inside the frame, like the float gauge:



Then, for the final time (hopefully), permanently mounted the body. Jeff had given me some camo overalls as an official redneck initation gift, and I accepted. Plus, this photo will freak out all my Yankee friends:



If anyone wants Jeff's old hard doors he wants to sell them for $200. I thought I would throw that out there...He would prefer not to ship them. You could get them in North Arkansas or down here in Biloxi:



The picture don't show much but they are at least in $200 shape I'd give them a 7/10...need to be painted and cleaned up but the glass is all there and they hold together...no major dents or nothing.

Um. Guys. What do I do for the transfercase shifter and linkage...I'm not seeing any cable shifters I can buy and it worries me...

Dash got here from Double D Fab. Awesome stuff:





That lockbox sure beats the tar out of the old wax cardboard one. xD

nice looking dash, Daniel does real good work with those dashes. What is that tube behind your gauge holes? Is that a grab handle? Also just something to look out for, but with the glove box moved in further on the dash it will cause interference with the heat controls on the heater box. I had to modify my plastic box and make it a little less deep so it didn't hit the heater box. Hope that was taken into account on your build.

That tube is probably for all the wiring to keep it neat and organized.

I am really happy with it. I have more modding to do to it but I was not sure which tablet I am going to get for the in-dash GPS and also which switches I want yet. And thanks for the heads up on the heater clipping! Luckily I am going to be using these aftermarket heaters:

That is a fantastic idea!!!! But it is just the grab handle that hasn't been unpacked.

Mojave Heater
Item #17290
Unit measures only 10.12" x 9" x 5"
Moves 140 CFM
12,000 BTU output
Uses your engines existing cooling system to heat air, not an electric or gas heater.
Small enough to mount under dash or under seat to provide heat to the rear of vehicle.


Got some updates on the build coming...
