Re: Tramps Truck,

Nice to see you’re still at it!

I’ve had hit and miss luck with ebay fuel hose. Some goes really brittle and just perishes / snaps.

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

How strong are the rear wings, can they be stood on? Looking like you'll be back on the road in no time! Seem strong enough to stand on, need to get a big lad to stand / bounce on them for a better test. I’ve been climbing all over it and it all seems solid, the little triangle braces on the back b...

Re: Traybacked Samurai

As said, its a lot easier to fit uprated shafts or convert the back to full float than fit Yota axles.

Mine has a rockwatt conversion, uprated shafts all round.

Take some abuse on the occasions its used.

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

Little bit more done, finished the welding. Coat of primer and black gloss on the fuel tank. I couldn’t decide what to do, or where to put the lights. I looked at new lights and couldn’t find any i liked, or that fit where i wanted them. So i’m just fitting the lights i already have for now (or the ...

Re: 21st Birthday SJ 410 Project

Can’t beat a nice gift to yourself.

As tim said, no real need to move the fuel tank, doesn’t really effect the departure angles as it’s tucked out of the way. A good bash guard will protect from being punctured and slide over rocks.

Re: Jordis 1988 Samurai (Re)Build

Just had the call from the fuel tank people. Much to my amazement my home made tank has passed its pressure test, shot blasted and coated. Very happy with that, had a terrible feeling as soon as it was pressurised it was just going to split at the seams. Get that collected and soon as all the weldin...
