Re: Overdrive (again)

So very jealous!

I'm local to you and wondering what it would take to do the same to mine. 710K in Fremont area. Are you a shop? Know one that could do the work? I can do many things but this seems advanced for me.

Re: EZ power steering

Sounds like folks are doing some nice additions with low cost, quality ideas in mind. Can we get some photos of the para cord steering wheel cover ( half hitches or straight wrap?) and the hub steps made from pipe flange etc. Might be good additions to the low cost improvements page.
