Want more suspension travel? Remove the bump stops. Razz  Ray we'll have a coil spring cutting day.

Uh oh... what have I done lol. You'll be saying this untill the frame is on the ground.

I want to lower the front of my Fleetwood a little more. study scratch



This just isn't cutting it anymore. I don't scrape enough speedbumps and inclined entrances.

I got another interesting project to occupy me for a bit while I wait for the springs to (possibly) settle a bit more.

And yes, this is all Tim's fault. lol

I thought about it, but it kind of fits the theme of the car. The stock shifters are too... well... stock. What you might expect to see.


Plus I really reaaaally like it. Laughing

We're going to incorporate it into a GM console. Looking for a proper console. I think it's pretty cool.

Anyone who has FB has seen this, or knows about it, but for those who don't, I was hit by a minivan on Sunday, October 20th.

I can't go into too much detail, but the hit was right at the driver's door. I couldn't open it at all, until today:



Waiting for insurance adjusters.

Oh man. The drivers around you must have it out for your car. Or is your car just that invisible with the satin black? Seems to attract other cars into it! Hope you're OK...

Ray, sorry for your loss. Hopefully the insurance cuts you enough to allow you to move forward, either with repair or replacement.

The worst part about it is it ruined my right front wheel. Robert gave me a couple of leads on people who should be able to repair it, but I definitely don't plan on losing those.

I'm still waiting for the second adjuster to come out, so I can't touch it yet. I think, tentatively, the plan is to just throw the spare up front and drive it with one new door up front for now. Maybe. It makes me sad seeing it like this.

Dont know which insurance company the other guy uses.just hope they are realistic with their appraisal and not some rediculous value.Its good you have plenty of picti=ures to document all the modifications you have performed.

He might get enough money to buy another wagon,..Wink 

Ray u should have a rental car on HER dime,..you,re not at fault.
and if the car is at a bodyshop you can bet they are charging storage,. if its at your place you too are entitled to charge the storage.

Agreed. Her fault, her insurance pays, not yours. Get a rental.

Well that's the problem. They haven't determined fault yet. The companies are battling that out, so I think it's still too early to get a rental, and I just don't have the coin to front that cost until they finish bickering.

Good to know on the storage bit. I had never heard that.

If the cop was lazy or it wasn't 100% clear it could be a "no-fault" accident or "partial-fault" for both parties... Been through that hell before...
