    Hi, I've been lurking around here gathering ideas to see what parts I can find locally in Peru for an ST4 project. Everyone seems to use the Fox air shock, but they are so expensive, and getting the high psi nitrogen here is difficult.

    I'm curious what coil overs you are using and what the overall travel is? Thanks

    As usual i haven't been updating anything, I'm in a mad dash to get it driving in august, pedals are mounted, shifter is mounted in an incorporated center console, all 8 control arms are welded, all steering components are welded, exhaust is welded, radiator and cooling system is welded, im pretty sure anything that can unbolt from the frame is removed and finish welded. Im determining if it is worth having the arms powdercoated and if so what color

    Looking good!

    Those are inappropriate shop shoes. No visible toes?

    I’m not looking forward to that finish welding stuff... got at least a week’s worth.

    Put it back together and run it a bit before powder. Never fails that as soon as you add color you end up needing to weld on it because of some unseen thing.

    As of right now i was only going to do the control arms and uprights, as i can't imagine what would need changed on them. And for the hassle of cleaning them (the only parts that rusted) and just painting then it's worth the 200 i was quoted plus i wont have to allign it twice haha. I do plan to just rattle can the frame to keep rust away for a while though

    I now have a floor, also a question, I'm working in figuring out the front "firewall" panels ( red lines in the picture)and it is kind of a tough fit especially on the driver's side because of pedals any recommendations on how to do it. I have some leftover 16 or 18 gauge steel im considering just doing those two pieces in steel and stitching them to the frame
