Default REW Repu

Ok ive had the truck for about 5 years now and between the other projects it has always been pushed back. Well i finally decided to change that. After years of research about what i would want in a truck, i have finally come to a conclusion. A few track days here and there, to be able to tow around all of my rotary motorcycles, and to melt the leaves off the trees at deals gap.


I finally brought her home from the shop


I have decided to put my FD seates in it


Got the body and bed off the frame. Thanks to some good friends


Yes this is my back yard lol


I have a few holes to patch





Bye Bye rusty hole


Got the whole frame sandblasted


Painted it with POR 15. Good stuff ( would reccomend )


New shiney stuff. Its not an easy task finding things that will fit.


Well i decided to go with a REW. It came out of a great running car. EFR, PS 1000, ID 2000. Pretty nice setup






I decided to get rid of the old boat style POS steering. I wanted to have a rack and also brakes to stop the thing. After lots and lots of research, chassisworks is the only way to go. I was really impressed on the quality when I got everything.




I will keep posting more and more pics as the days go buy. I have a long way to go in these next few months but mabye i can pull it off.

This is the only way i know how to get pictures on the forum. (my first time trying to put pics on) If anyone could give some direction on how to just put the pictures in the posting instead of the link, that would help a lot. Thanks guys

The easiest way is to host your pictures on one of the free sites like flicker. Then hit the share button for your photo, in the photo site, and copy the link for the size picture you want. Then simply paste the link into your post. You usually don't need the image tags when posting from one of the sites.

I lust after another REPU, jealous I am.

Thanks for the advice. I have figured out my issue. I have admin issues and restrictions on my work computer. I will fix all my images when i get home later.

Heres the first pic corrected for you. Just do a quote or reply on my post and you can see what I did. The trick is to go to the pic and open just the image into a new tab so you get
the full url to only the image and not some FB gobblygook url that doesn't work right.

An older B2000 would be good to do too with the LWB.

This is why you always see me with my flash drive at work, where I keep the portable Firefox app.

These work computers are very restricted. .

The next step is finally here after a month of waiting! Tubular control arms, billet rack, adjustable shock coilovers. Now its time to start fab work.
