  1. I am going to start calling this the Cleetus McFarland effect. If you are going to build a tube chassis and have all the tools and skill to accomplish that, starting with a clean slate would probably net a better result in the end.
  2. My experience with seats, you need to cut out the factory stuff and build your own, as low profile as possible. Well, that is what by big ass needed. Someone smaller may be able to do a bolt in. Go check out Planted, they might have something more bolt in. https://www.plantedtechnology.com/
  3. Its alive! Well... you have tail lights at least. I have considered doing the Honda motor upgrade. I will take that accord motor off your hands.
  4. Rest in peace, he was one of us. Damn shame.
  5. I think that is the right call. Going to save you so much time and money in the end.
  6. I had the same thought. Why not move it above the runner? But on the other hand, it doesn't take very much load.
  7. I did mine in very similar fashion. Keep in mind that the factory used fairly low temp solder to attach the hose barbs and sending unit flange. I got mine too hot and had some solder run out. Which was a bit of a pain to fix. I ended up fitting the Tanks inc sending unit in there as well. It was tight and I am not sure I gained much from it. In hindsight I should have just fixed the factory one. Do you plan on sealing the inside? I would be happy to share notes on that. I got good at it after I had to completely strip and re-do it a second time. Don't be like me, do it once.
  8. I would find another chassis. I just heard a rumor from a coworker there is a clean shell down the road for $800. They are out there. I would way rather do floors than that roof repair.
  9. Might try the colbolt bits from McMaster. They are a bit harder than the HSS bits but not as fragile as carbide. I have used them in harder material. I had a real problem with loosening drive shaft bolts. I ended up taking the nuts, placing a chisel across the face and giving it a solid whack. It peens over the edge and stopped my loosening problem. Safety wire is probably a better idea though. I may go ahead and do this when I assemble my CVs. Keep us posted on how it works out
