Because I use my shop to do other stuff , it 's a pain in the ass to move the truck and jack it up and jack it back down to move it aside , so I came up with this idea , I made three sizes of blocks , so I can use different combinations to suit a height that I need .

I have taken a month off to button up this truck , So Stay Tuned In !!!!

Hi
Will be working on Blue Thunder for a while , lots of stuff getting in the way as usual .
My White D21 is all back together runs awesome , picked up a new to us daily driver for my wife , her 95 MX5 started smoking really bad on start up , I suspect it's the stem seals .
Her new ride !!!!! 2012 MX5 with a power roof and all the toys , it came from Kentucky , it was in a lite crash , some assembly required !!!! .

hi sorry my posts are behind on here , the site seems to be down alot , so you can get caught up on Ratsun .................


My little white D21's engine decided to blow the head gasket , so I pulled the head to see what was going on , yup the gasket was bad along with the cam chain sliders etc.


Wow I couldn't believe the price of the parts !!! head gskt set and bolts over $300 and the cam chain set complete was over $500 !!!

So I used my spare engine , took the best external parts from both and put it in , runs strong .


So that used up my time for Blue Thunder this week ...........

Small update
Zero time for Blue Thunder , just too busy with work ..... totally burnt out .
glassed the plug and made the mold for the exhaust tip cover , was rushed to get it done .
The plug took a beating , but that's ok , the mold is not bad , I was planning to use the same exhaust tip on the next project , there will be two of them out back in the defuser , so that's why I went to all this effort .

Update
Zero time to work on the truck , got something done.
final paint on the plug for the mold , and sprayed with PVA and then Sprayed some Black tooling gel coat.



This is the PVA ( its a mold release ) several coats of mold release wax before this.
