So one o the other things that needs to be addressed here soon is gonna be my brake booster, and master cylinders and stuff like that. As far as i see it the easiest way for me to do this is to do a floor mounted clutch, brake, and gas pedal assembly. that way i can keep the fire wall nice and clean and everything will be inside the cab, hidden and tucked away on the inside of the firewall. My other options are, doing just a brake booster delete which will still putrude through the firewall into the engine bay, than id have to rig up a clutch master cylinder under the dash. Or i can do a firewall mounted swing pedal setup for the brake an clutch but than i run the risk of nothing fitting correctly since the tub is so gotdamn big. So in my mind, being mounted on the floor will make my life alot easier. Im thinkin of doing the "Mix Match" one withouth the roller pedal.... http://www.dansperformanceparts.com/buggy/tcbh/buggytcbh2.htm

In case no one saw on instagram, I got the engine pulled out today, now we can actually get in there and shave everything that needs to be shaved and clean the whole engine bay up real nice. There's only about 3-4 "big" holes that need to be filled and a couple other small bolt holes that can get covered too. I'm also planning on pulling the cab as well pretty soon...

Ed thinks i should candy paint the firewall lol but shouldnt i worry about the wheels wells first? only the cab is tubbed, if i paint the firewall now... it will just be ruined once the fender wells go in. Should i grab two steel trailor fenders from tractor supply and request a day off work?..... Ed chim in on thissssssss

Oh and another thing, i pulled the front control arms, and everything. Got in the engine bay with a wire brush and started getting all the gunk and shit outta there. I got the driver and passenger cab tubs completely sealed with seam sealer too. I noticed today, pulling all the suspension stuff out, that the bag is rubbing a bit where we notched the frame in the front. So i took the flap disk to it a lil bit tonight, imma do a lil more tommorow. and see if the bag still rubs. I might snatch the core support off too... i might wait... Do work.

As we all know... Cab has been removed. Engine thrown back in for now, tranny crossmember is in(Thanks Ed!). And thats pretty much where we left off that night we were all at my house working on it. Since than, ive got the engine more stripped down(Intake removed, exhaust studs removed, a couple brackets removed), and the most of the engine has been wire brushed and wire wheeled and is nearly completely cleaned and nearly ready for paint. Ive gotten most of the excess metal from the factory crossmembers off and ground down smooth... Basically from the frame horns to the bed mounts the frame is pretty much ready for paint, still have a lil more metal to grind down smooth and stuff. The rear axle, wishbone, and link bars have been removed, but im probably gonna have to put it all back on to figure out where im gonna mount tanks and compressors etc. As of right now... Heres the things i need to get done.
Clean whats left of excess crossmember metal
C-notch crossmember
Cut and box off the notched crossmember for the driveshaft
Figure out compressor, air and gas tank mounting points(gotta figure out what tank im gonna run first)
Fishplate and box off the rear c-notches
And than the frame should be ready to be painted.
After that, i gotta paint the enigne, intake manifold, order a new intake block off plate(i bought the wrong one)
Get a new carb and adapter kit
Gotta get a fuel pump and regulator and line etc.
Figure out how to setup my brakes and lines and stuff.
Finish the driveshaft tub inside the cab, patch up some holes in the floor board.
Figure what im gonna do for a windsheild and the seal for the windsheild.
and.... yea thats all i can think of right now. Thats the majority of the stuff.... Fuck.
