So my junkyard 22re that I need to swap into my 4runner came with a clean title, 33x12.50s, factory AC, decent interior and a bunch of Lucas-grade electrical gremlins. Oh, and rust.
When looking for photos and inspiration for paying clients, I often stumble upon fun stuff that I just ended up not having time to finish. Damn bills.
I found myself in Nodak doing work. Fucking awesome 4th of July god damned American work (I still bitched, my #1 American job). We all knew they were both in there, but neither had been moved in 20+ years. Yes, we got better ratchet straps. Yes, of course that is a 350. Yes, it was bittersweet.
CDOT is putting on a contest to win a drive in a self-driving car. I am the lackey that had to post the form, so I am sure I am not eligible. However, all you opponauts are. Well, if you live in Colorado, are above 18 and blah blah blah.
Welp. I did it again. I could not pass up a bargain and have another vehicle for the fleet. Oh! And I just quit my job of 9 years without another in place or a plan really. But I have this now:
Welp- I missed Carnage on Larimer again. How come every month on average I get invited to 25 micro-brew tours, 12 happy hours and 8 foodie dinners, a few art shows and a few pick up games but ZERO car shows? Cant we combine happy hour and car shows? Oh right....that was Carnage on Larimer and I missed it. Motherfuck.
Cool pic I found of my lemons car and almost lemons car
So- long story short, my MIG welder was stolen a while back and I have not replaced it because I rarely have use for a welder. However, of course, I flipped the U-bolts on my 4runner and now I need to weld in some shock mount tabs. Super easy, I have the tabs, just no welder. Friend of mine has been a flake about it…
After taking the ole’ truck out for a spot of fishing a few weeks ago, I decided my old ass first gen 4runner needed to ditch the lift blocks. I bought some lift leaf springs via Amazon (prime bitches). A ubolt flip kit and a set of weld in shock tab mounts. Cool..finally can get that knocked out.
The fam wants to move this chevy out so I told them I would post it up here to get some looks and maybe some extra info. Everything is in good shape and is complete. The Nova swap is top notch. I really want to take on this project but I really don’t know too much about these and have too many half finished projects…
Any Jalop out there have any used LeMons gear for sale? Fireproof suit, boots, gloves for a 6’ 170lb duder.
Oldz can now stop, now to work on GO. Who wants to help rebuild a 394 Rocket?
