You guys are making it tuff!

You guys are making it impossible for me to work on my race car LOL. Ive got thur, friday, and sat. off, and need to cut the back half of the car apart and redesign the cage, and instead im comtemplating the body lift and getting my drive shafts lengthened and brake lines. Im never going to make race season by mid april at this rate!!

No you won't, but at the rate you're going, you'll make Zukfari!

Re: You guys are making it tuff!

AFter looking at everones websites here that I can find, and others online, my challenge is going to be keeping from turning OVER LOL.

Ive told myself that I cant touch the zuk this weekend until the rear half of the cage is out, and new one is in. We will see how well I stick to that gameplan LOL

Re: You guys are making it tuff!

That's how it happens! Same thing happened to me a few years ago. I had a mildly modified Suzuki that was fairly capable off-road. One day I get turned onto the internet and start finding all the Awesome Suzuki's that people are building.... now I'll never be the same. Gone are all of my other hobbies. I'm a Zukuholic, and I realize I have a disease!

Re: You guys are making it tuff!

The targa bar is held on with screws. Buy or borrow an impact driver... they're the dreaded Phillips head screws that round out so easy.

I only have six of the screws left holding my targa bar on(replaced with hex-head bolts). My roll cage protects me now and the targa is just there to hold the full top on when I need it. I can have it off in just a few minutes.

I absolutely Love having the targa off![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] If I'm going wheelin' and it doesn't look like it's going to rain, it's off. I usually run with a Kayline bikini top which offers some protection from the sun or a light rain shower.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

Another thing..... It's much easier for me to enter/exit the Zuk with the targa off. My roll cage makes it hard for me.... I'm 6'4". With the targa off, I have a much larger opening to try to squeeze through.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
