    81 Anvil Scrambler Build

    Very nice build thread! I think you'll be OK with the springs as you get it all together and it settles in. Also the weight of 6 passengeers will make it sink. And don't forget they grow. The dash mount looks like the best alternative and structuraly is more solid than the floor mounting...

    The beginning.. the end.... and a fresh start

    I dont know whats better, the new gauges or actually knowing how much gas I have. Also my factory oil pressure gauge read abouty 20psi. The new gauges come with new senders for the oil and temp. Oil pressures up at 60 psi cold and settles down to 35 when warmed up at idle. Temp is stable in...

    The beginning.. the end.... and a fresh start

    Well I've had the gauges sitting on my tool box front and center since August. The weather was really nice this past week so I got inspired.

    The beginning.. the end.... and a fresh start

    I'll post em up when they arrive. I'm stoked they're getting here quick but not too much in a hurry with the heat. I did a timing belt on my 300zx today and the heat and humidity was up there. I had a floor fan aka carpet fan blowing on me and a box fan. I was soaked to my drawers and...

    The beginning.. the end.... and a fresh start

    well I finally went and did it... pulled the trigger on a set of Speed Hut gauges. The factory look except the speedo will have an offset racing stripe. Should be a couple or three weeks. I'll post up the process when they get here. Cheers

    Gladiator

    Took a surf trip to Costa Rica last week. Crossing to the Nicoya Peninsula on a ferry this was parked on the deck. Diesel powered, lifted, painted with rhino liner or something similar. A gladiator

    Beautiful job and great attention to detail. That Jeep is going to light up the Island when you get there.
