Default off road rolls do over

We scored a 454 BBC from a cowboy up in Craig CO. He had it rebuilt and then decided to go back to a SBC crate motor. So we decided to pull the Rolls back in and start over. The first picture is the start on the off road front bumper. The second pic is after we fabbed the pivot for the tilt front end, bumper and all. Then another picture of the front bumper and another of the almost done tilt front end. Second to last is a shot of the off road rear bumper we fabbed. It's coming along good, but it's missing something. And finally, one of the 2 valve cover we made for the BBC. We bought them at Summit, had em' powder coated and then wrote a custom program to carve out the tops on the Mori Seki......coolio!!

You guys did an awesome job on the bumpers! No better way to make them look like they belong!

Default Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the comps on the bumpers. The crazy thing is, the front and rear bumper are #4 and #5 of all the bumpers we've ever built. I guess it's beginners luck. Yesterday I said I thought there was something missing. Today we figured it out...................shackles!!

You're a very sick man. I love it. One the best 4X4 car I've seen. I was going to build a 4X4 66 lincoln continental convertible ,but my wife talked me out of it. Kind of wish I would had done it.

Default offroadrolls progress

tilt motor.jpgMade my way to Steamboat this week to work on the Rolls. We motorized the tilt front end using a liear acuator motor we scored at the Tri State Auto swap in Denver.
wire wall.jpgNext we had to deal with the relays and wiring on the firewall
firewall top.jpgRather than move it all we opted to cover it with and sheet of .10" alminum that we'll have powder coted in the future.
knob.jpg Dale crafted some nifty knobs for securing the cover over all the junk on the firewall
Chunk o Alminum.jpg Today we're going to start on the covers for the fuse boxes on the firewall.
