Still have long hair (well, for me anyway).

Turbo won't be back in time for CM.

So I ran to the junkyard and found a Saab 900 with a T3 on it.

The engine is ready to start, with ONE exception--the turbo from the junkyard needs a different oil return line, so I'll go see what I can find in town tomorrow morning. If nothing, then I'll see what I can weld up. Roll cage got clear coated for the final time and is in the truck. I may not have the doors or top on, but if I can get the turbo oil drain situated tomorrow morning, I should have time to get an exhaust made, get it inspected by the state, and leave straight from the state inspection office to be in Moab by wednesday evening. That's the plan anyhow. If that fails, then wednesday morning I'll fly back to DIA, grab the faux-lux and be in Moab by evening...

So, the 40 isn't coming to Moab.

Basically, it came down to hose clamps and time. I ran out of hose clamps so I couldn't fill it with coolant. Since I couldn't drive it around this afternoon to get an exhaust put on, I won't have time to get exhaust and alignment done tomorrow and still make it to Moab in a timely manner.

So, I'm off to DIA tomorrow morning and I'll be bringing the faux-lux instead. No biggie, I love the faux-lux too.

The pictures don't show all of the little bits that were tightened up today (like the body being aligned and tightened--with the exception of the left fender), but the running boards make it look more complete, and the hi-lift always looks good there, IMHO.

Dan, it has been great to watch this evolve. I'm sorry to hear you ran out of time. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished up and rolling on the trails.
