Re: #Goldnugget: The 3rd build.

So, I didn't scrap it.

Here's my wife back in the day before I took a saw to this one.



Put some more paint on this thing.



Painting tube SUCKS.

#Goldnugget: The 3rd build.

He's at the crawl for the next few days. If there has been any progress it's just been buying or selling parts, he hasn't touched it.

I cut the grass around it the other day.

That's about it. Trying to fertilize my money tree as this thing got way out of hand too quickly. Now, the plan is to just go straight to Coil-overs and links front and rear. To hell with this coil/leaf spring nonsense.

Once I get back from this big trip to Colorado I might actually start fooling with some of the suspension.

Re: #Goldnugget: The 3rd build.

So, In case you were wondering... I sold this time consuming money pit and cheated.

Got tired of not being able to go wheeling.

Crossed over to the dark side and bought a YJ. Now I can actually go wheeling.

I did swap some cheater tires onto it, though.
