Figured I should post up my current slow build on here.

It started with Snowracer tagging me in a add on Facebook for a 1983 sj410k with no papers. Not long after that I picked up another one with papers. It was supposed to be a simple build. You know build a new frame. Add some bigger diffs and a doubler

Its built primarily for snowwheeling so I've tried to keep it on the light side. That's where the name Top Ramen came from as a there was been some doubt to my choice of frame rail dimension, with references to a wet noodle

Isnt the point of top ramen that its a quick meal? 3min on high and gtg? :flipoff2:

Looks like what i would to micro parts.
Yeah I think I was cocky enough when I started that I had set a goal of 100 days. Of course things snow balled its has gotten way out of hand. now Its basically a buggy with panels
