    So my son and I have been doing a bit more work to the sandrail. We built a foot rest for the sandrail next to the clutch pedal. That will give me a place for my leg to push on when I am running through the dunes. My son Jake (10 years old) help install it as well. Always good to help kids learn something. See pics below.

    Jake has also been interested in ProtoDie's XK450, but since he has seen the XK1000, he now wants one of those. I told him that he's too small for the XK1000. He was willing to compromise....says he will go down to an XK900.........God help me

    On another note, I did some research on lights for the buggy. Found some from TrailTech that look good and should fit well given their size. They are back ordered, but should be here in 3-4 weeks. Check out the link below for info.

    I hear you on the square tire, but I figure after a few hours on the dunes I could get it rounded out!

    Square tires - they're like paddle tires on a bike. Once you get moving fast enough, it quits being so rough. That's gonna require a lot of speed.

    I think you need to start some new thread on some unsuspecting web site talking about the newest Square Paddle Technology and see who you can draw in.

    Those Proto cars are CLEAN! I've always appreciated Jody's work.

    Man, I bet I could sell a boat load of the square tires, the latest in square laser technology (SLT)!

    Jody does good work, really easy to work with as well on a custom design. He lives too far away, but I keep trying to bait him in for a trip to the Oregon Dunes!

    OK, the lights arrived and we have made a few custom brackets to tie into the frame and sheet metal. The pics below show them mounted to the XK1000, look pretty good. My son helped install them and did some light machined work as well. You can see him in the picture, the one that doesn't want to get out of the rail

    Also touched up the frame from the damage done by the shipping company. Got them to pay for the damages, but still irritating none the less. Sheet Metal roof will go out to have the powder coating redone also due to the shipping company.

    The search for an engine kit continues, found a few guys that deal with this as a regular business. Might get a lead on one within the next week or so....

    Good news! Found an 08 engine kit, working on the shipping arrangements to Oregon. Should have everything I need except for Fuel Pump, Ignition switch, and gauge panel. I can pick those items up after I get the engine installed and redo the wiring harness. Looks like I am going to need a schematic and most likely the service manual....

    Thanks for the link Jody, I'll pull the manual later tonight and check it out. Things are moving along, should have the sheet metal roof back from powder coat later this week. My son will help install it with the Cleco's and get some experience riveting it in place.

    Got the sheet metal roof back from the powder coat shop, looks exactly like the rest of the panels. My son and I installed it on the rail, so that's a done deal.

    Engine kit is shipping this week, should be here after Turkey time!
