We literally had a 15k lb rack and a Hunter Hawkeye elite installed three weeks ago! Too bad we probably live nowhere near each other.Sweet idea! I’ll get the new trans mounts, mid supports and suspension bushings put in! Do you have an alignment rack (and know how to use it)? :laugh:
I think I've seen at least one Festiva at a local Autox group, if not two. I want to say I've seen the white one on course.Local friend of mine has gotten into Festivas in the last couple years. I'd be surprised if he wasn't on the Festiva forums. He even picked up those same camber/caster plates for one of his.
Sure is!Is his name John? Cars look familiar
I'm sure you have. He definitely takes them to the AutoX. From what I hear, he does pretty well in them?I think I've seen at least one Festiva at a local Autox group, if not two. I want to say I've seen the white one on course.
Also, I saw your Caddy at the Greenville Cars and Coffee a few months back too!
Yes, he's smooth on course. Maybe you'd be able take the caddy one day too!Sure is!

I'm usually at Cars and Coffee every month. There's only certain ones that I end up missing (usually because I'm out of town at another show, haha).
:thumbup:Good question on the alignment rack, I want to put shocks and struts on the Party Box. :laugh:
Oh, I was definitely being facetious. I'm in southern Indiana close to Louisville and that's a hell of a drive. In winter. With a 50 year old tin can. :laugh: :beer:We literally had a 15k lb rack and a Hunter Hawkeye elite installed three weeks ago! Too bad we probably live nowhere near each other.
Ordered my tires on amazon last night, as we looked through our suppliers at work and go laughed at when we said we were looking for 13's. They are not great, but they will be fine for what I'm doing, plus I'll find a set of 14's if I need performance tires.
It's commonly called a Cheetah, up here anyways, and it's used to inflate tires with a narrow bead onto a wider rim, large tires, or tires that are generally a pain in the ass to inflate. It releases 5 gallons of 150psi compressed air as fast as you can open the ball valve. It's quite loud, but it gets the job done.Ooh, I am excited to see the progress that you'll be making over the next couple of weeks!
Quick question: In the background of the tire mounted, what's the red air tank with the nozzle used for? Is that a safer way to do the rapidly expanding stretched tires trick?
I too thought the same thing, but according to the pictures I took when disassembling the beam for powdercoating, that's how it went.Is that upper spring installed right? I've never seen one that looked so out of place. Looks like you even had to twist it a bit to get it in.
