    Mate! That is full points for a job well done.

    I was in a moon boot and crutches for just over 3 months and all I can say is you poor man. Hang in there big fella. Keep your mind busy, your foot elivated and stay positive. It's no fun but do it right and don't rush it and bugger the healing.
    All dressed up and waiting for the beer to arrive.

    I agree three months is going to suck but I know if I don't handle this properly now it will haunt me later in life. This gives me time to think about all my projects

    Oh ouch!
    Never seen a full dislocation of everything like that.
    Ouch!

    The boot is so much fun. NOT!
    At least you picked the right time of year to do it. Not really “outdoor” season coming up.
    Hold down the couch and heal up.

    Well it's been a minute since i've posted. My foot is almost healed but now I go back in to get the hardware taken out.


    Built an exhaust from the original headers, I plan on eventually redoing them but this is good enough to get me driving.




    finished up some wiring but i'm still having issues with the cluster not getting power. so this is on my next big to do.

    Glued the tip over sensor

    The tank was full of rust and actually seized my fuel pump so I cleaned the tank out and put an aftermarket fuel pump in its place
    Since I had to remove the tank I took the executive decision to make the rear section of frame removable for service. This keeps me from having to pull the seat and drain coolant every time i need to do something....hopefully this was a good decision



    I still have some fitting to do and i'm waiting on some parts to finish this. They'll be in on sunday so that'll be done next week

    Clutch lever is setup
    Shifter setup is done
    Throttle cable and pedal setup done


    Redid the suspension bolts and made sure to have proper washers and hardware


    Wired up the lights



    Lastly I started coming up with some body panels, while they're not nearly as amazing looking as some others on here they will certainly do fine




    Just to add some more fun i'm going up to silver lake to swap VW engines from my other two buggies this weekend too

    Love the last pic! Lol

    After cleaning the tank did you, by chance, seal it up with Kreem? Multi-step clean & seal that works really well. Rust can be hard to clean out.

    I have a set of Weller Racing R1 headers that were an extra set from when I was helping a team building SR1 Rhino's for the Lucas series years ago... Not sure if they would some in handy for you or not though?

    I didnt do the sealer but I have the tank pulled off currently so I will look into that! cleaning tanks is a PITA

    KustomFab2003 do you have any pics of the headers? and what you would want for them? If i remember right you work in appleton so if I bought them I'd have my Miller buddy pick them up so no shipping would be needed
