World's shortest swinger bolts. #poorsteeringdesignnotenoughroom.

Just got a text from the GM. Apparently we're having a meeting about the stay at home order tomorrow.

I am not prepared for this shit! I've got empty bottles and shit. Need to hit the welding store tomorrow and stock up.

But do you even shank bro?
Don’t worry, my little billion dollar oilfield got scrapped last week. Secretly wifey and I have been hunkering down for some time.

Well to answer the question of "do the front shock mounts rub on the shock?" Fuck yes they do!

So a little plasma hacking.

And a plate to tie it back into the downtube.

When I get back thursday I'll do the other side.

Door bars in.

Sleevey side.

And the other side no sleeve.

I cut out the part of the floor that had a bump in it for the wheel well. Both of these were bad rust spots so no great loss. Now the seats will go back another 2" or so also. Going to pick up some 1" tomorrow to make seat mounts.

Hack-tastic flat fender. I like the concept, just not the execution.

I tried hacking up a cheap trailer fender. Results are not good. Have to go back to plan A. I was going to get some bent up at work but the sheetmetal guy kicked the bucket. The new guy doesn't know what he's doing and is an unhelpful dick. Guess I will have to go in on a friday and do them myself.

So I turned some spacers for the calipers at work yesterday.

Of course they didn't have a 7/16-20 tap, production shop versus job shop problem. So I tapped them at home. Fuck tapping that shit by hand.

Then welded on to the uprights.

The threads are a little tight between the two. May run a roll tap through to even them out or might say fuck it, locking thread motherfucker.
