one eye

My New Wheeler Project.....Butters.......... **updated pics**

Recommended Posts

Looks like they worked out ok. Did they give you any troubles putting them in?

 

Looks pretty level.

 

I had the 27's on the front there so its sitting a little raked, I just put the 30's on and its a little off but thats ok, I had to grind off a little on that strut right on the bottom side, it was rubbing on the CV Axle pretty good.

Where the trussing wrapped around the bottom of the eye? I just noticed it in the picture. That was the weakest point I was worried about. :-\

 

Should still be fine.

Cool. Should be "sturdy". I'm gonna go cut some steel. I'll talk to you Wednesday. It should be mobile by then right? We can drive it up the stairs at the court house... :lol:

Things are lookin done, all but a couple of things but, I cna drive it now...

runs good with and EA81 in it, and all the gears shift good, Oh and its tall.:grin: It sits even with my Brother-in-laws 96 yokon on 20's:eek:, any ways Dan (86GLSUB) and I went over to the parking lot next to my house and got some pics....................... Here is Butters..............................

 

I have to first off thank Woody for all of his help with the welding, Will for the struts in the rear, Rick, Yohn, Dan, Richard, and Bill the Beast for the front struts, Just had to give credit to everyone that put a hand in helping make it happen!!!

That hood scoop looks great, and should at least help with cooling. I likes the rear diff hanger too...looks beef. How is the front of it supported, if at all? I can't even tell for sure if you've trimmed the fenders yet, but if not, it doesn't look like it needs much! :lol:

The front is all linked together, with pipe, the fenders have not been cut at all.............. just needs a little triming on the front fender well......
