While we wait, here's some recent pictures of Zukie. Going to look even better with the new springs and larger tires :)

Excited, working with Dan the Sticker Man to design a decal for Zukie and any day now should be getting my first package from ZOR. Things have been a little rough for me lately, so all this good news is a welcomed respite. Thanks for following me in my journey, and stay tuned for some fun updates.

Some unfun updates is my second in 2 years radiator is on it's way out, so I'm back to scrounging up funds for that, but, I have a cool swap idea for it. This should also be fun, stay tuned :D

Ahhhh!!!! :D I have my official tracking numbers from ZOR! I'm beyond excited for these packages to get here. I am going to try to both photo and video document my build projects, but they will be as follows:

-Project Pass Inspection: Install 1.5 OME Leaf Springs, .5 longer shackles, and new bushings thanks to ZOR, to come to a total of 2in lift. This will allow for larger tires (29's) which for some stupid reason are cheaper than anything smaller. Zukie's current 10, going on 11 year old tires that I was tricked into thinking were new (I didn't know how to read the code yet) will finally be a thing of the past, and I wont get a rejection sticker. Our town mechanic was generous in letting her pass last year, with a list of what I would need to do to pass this year. The front breaks were the first of this project.

-Radiator Replacement, with bonus radiator carnage, as I plan to crush my old radiator with a sledgehammer for all it has put me through, lol. I am attempting my own swap idea, as the radiator will be a new one, but made for a Honda Civic (1992-2000). A local shop in town is going to help me weld the mounts from my old radiator (after I cut the welds off) onto the new one, and by size, it should be a near drop in fit. I'm pretty excited to see my own mod idea come to be.

-MYside1 Install with 44 Harley Carb. I am beyond excited about this opportunity courtesy of ZOR. This will be a project I might cry before I get to do... happy cry of course. I would not have such an amazing opritunity without ZOR's sponsorship and support.

-Pacifica Seat Swap. This one was a complete suprise to me. A joke here on the Zorum turned into a real thing. I will also be able to confirm or deny if they will fit with the Tuffy Center console. Another cry first project, courtesy of ZOR.

Thanks to everyone for following me on this journey. I still really don't know what to say, other than thank you. Thank you so much. And stay tuned. :)
