One question, are those air shocks, or just long shocks with no stroke left? I'm confused as they seem to be almost fully compressed but they're so long.
Thanks. AS for the shocks, they are almost fully compressed with the bags deflated. The shocks are off my four door Jeep JK so I used them. I need 7 inches of travel with the bags I'm running.
No they aren't air shocks.

Thanks,

No the original was missing in action. I got a quick and simple wiper motor from Speedway. Just mounts thru the hole and add a switch, single speed.
No more than it rains here, I'll probably never use it.

Thanks for the info. I have the original wiper motor on my '52, its two speed and has linkage under the dash to run both sides at once. Im not even sure if it works and it runs off 6 V positive ground. I could probably sell it to someone who cares about the originality of the motor and pick up the speedway one.

Default High priced tool cart

This is what happens when you when you don't work on or drive
your hot rod. It turns into to a bench to pile stuff on.
I think I need to get my priorities back in line.

Default Note to self....

You might want to make sure your registration is current when
driving a rat/hot rod. You might get stopped by the police, twice.
I went to Albuquerque today and got stopped on the way in and
coming home. Bummer.

POPS..POPS..POPS.
Reminds of when I was younger. My brother had dropped a V-8 into his Vega station wagon. He got pulled over 3 times in one day by 2 cops. We lived in a small town and they printed the police blotter sheet in the weekly paper.
My Mom saw it and........

Bummer! Any tickets out of the ordeal?

At least they had a reason to stop you. I was stopped because the cop didn't understand my 1946 plate is legally registered and gave me a warning.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.
