Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

<html><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">

Hey, I was lookin' at your site and you've got one helluva nice ride! Rear disc brakes, DT shocks, and it's very clean to boot! I was lookin' at your traction bar. You had two pics on there that I could see, here and here (For those of you who would like to see them). I was wondering if you had a shackle where the traction bar attaches to the frame, or if you ran them straight to a mountpoint. Unfortunetly, that part of the bar isn't in the pic!</p></body></html>

Those pictures don't do it justice, it's a work of art, very impressive in person. Not just looking good either, it's 100% functional.

The traction bar, the whole zook, or both?

Re: Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

Well thanks.. Yes it has a shackle up where the pic doesn't
show. I ran a 1 1/4" piece of square tubing across the top
of the frame rails and tied a mount to it. (I can take a picture of it and add it to my site.) It doesn't limit the flex, (I used rubber bushings) and it really helps
both on and off road. (I am trying to keep a set of springs more than a season.)

Re: Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

Yeah, some pics of where the shackle mount is in relation to the leaf spring mounts are would be great. Thanks! I've been tryin' to motivate myself to build the traction bar for a while, but there is always something else to do. It really irks me that I have a bunch of projects for the zook and all of them occupy the "next to do" spot on my list.

Re: Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

Well as far as the "Next to do list" trust me it don't get no better. I aligned the mount about evan with the spring mounts. (The bar is across the frame right in front of the
body mount.) Here is a link to a new shot. (It is hard to get what you want for a shot unless it is on a lift.)

Here is a bonus of my new panhard bar mount up front-

I will try to get My site updated next week.
Hope this helps.

Re: Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

Allow me to express extreme lust and drool over your sami. That's a sweet lookin' exhaust and panhard. How effective does the panhard seem to be?

Glenn,

What type of paint did you use on your camo auto paint or the camo spray cans, looks great! either way.

Re: Hey, WildWeasel, I want more of your t-bar...

Well Put it this way I won't drive off or on road without one now I have one! Max calls it my sports car zook.
Really tightens things up. For the paint last year I used
enamel from a local surplus place, It is marketed to the
duck hunters.. I am going to repaint it before Zukimelt,
and use the new rustolum spray camo colors. (New england winters are rough on a flat finish. And I am hard on the
rig too...) This will be it's last winter on the road,
from here on out I am going to take it off the road in
the winter so it will last. (I have 2 more zooks as daily drivers...)
