got everything cleaned off both sides of the front part of the sammy's frame .
this number tells me my junk is a 91 Tin Top . Funny thing is the vin # on the dash is different and it says my rig is a 92 soft top . The whole vehicle was red at one time , still is under it all except the drivers door wtich is blue . On a side note , I bought the Samurai from the Suzuki dealer in Dartmouth .
back on track ,,,,,,,the frames on Samurais are very thin and once I had the rails cleaned off I could see they were starting to buckle where the shock towers were , made some fish platers
plated the frame where the old towers were and where the new ones will be
cut the shackle hangers out as they have to be moved forward to match the 3" stretch and out to match the Toyota's 29" perch spacing
made these to fill in the back part of the cut out
I'll now cut out the outlined areas and reweld the mounts back in the right place .
the drivers side . Only went up this far
As I said before , the PS box will go here and it will be plated
Also got two of the wheels done to fit the Toyota hubs . had to open the center of the rims about 1/8 of an inch . I have 5 of these . had them in the barn for 15 years . Makes me think I was planing this build for some time
all for now .
I LIKE TO PLAY , 91 Samurai with lots of mods , 08 Ranger , 15 Mazda CX5
