Samurai – “Project #2” Custom Seats & Bumper

 Jim Bova' Project 2

 

This 4th installment of Project #2 is a collection of small projects that We have been doing. As soon as the warmer weather comes back I plan on doing CJ front springs in the rear with M/L's and Sammi rear up fronts as well as a welded rear.  I also have a pony carb that I will install because the stocker seems like it may need a little work and I figure it will be easier to install the pony. During the winter I plan to make seat mounts to mount the seats I found along the roadside in a junk pile.          Click to see a larger shot...

Here it is so far.          Click to see a larger shot... Seats found in a road side junk pile. I was told they were out of a Mazda Miata.      Click to see a larger shot... Since I got the "new" engine in, it has always been tough to start. Took the starter out and notice this bushing moving back and force. A friend gave me a replacement. I'll fix this in time.                  08/11/10 14:50
