That's awesome, Ryan! Really like those wagons...
What are you planning on using for the airbag control system (valves, gauges, compressor, etc)?
That is pretty slick, next time I find a car I want I will show the wife the pics so she'll want it too................
Now this is a bitchin' story! Wayland bound?
running some manual valves for now, but will switch them out for some 3/8 electric air ride's soon. viair 480's comps.
very nice wagon, has the perfect lines to make a full blown kustom with a candy top or just a very pretty daily driver with some WWW's
Looks like you did good. You aint messin around. Git er done.
funny thing is me and the wife where talking about you last night while out in the shop about throwin down some louvers on the hood?!
Just let me know we'll do it while you wait and you can take it home with you.
Damn, you're fast!

meet up with Jake and got it all crammed into my daily toaster box.
2 front fenders, inners, core support, grill, upper support, and some gauges.i didn't believe that we got all that shit in there!
huge thanks to Jake and the Tulsa crew for an awesome day.
good food, friends, 1 tick 9 that makes 2 total because of this damn car), 2 spiders in the car on the way home, 2 scratched tinted windows, and numerious ants.
is that a cube or a scion? either way you are fired!!! hand in your alliance badge, now LOL
thats my scion.
it was either drive that and get 30 mpg or take my big ass super duty and get 7mpg. i gave up looking cool along time ago.
speaking of alliance tags, wheres yours?
ya, ya, ya i know lol. i had no choice but use the dodge 2500 during the gas crunch not long ago. was costing $5+/gallon and those turbo diesels are thirsty pigs!!
im just poking at an open wound, no harm intended
Good looking sled man. This thread made me pull the trigger on one yesterday that Ive known about for years. Hope to get started on it soon.

i had a 60 parkwood that i sold a couple of yrs ago. i had a 402 bb in it. i filled in the back windows with sheet metal and made a semi sedan delivery. it was very cool and i do regret selling it.
Glad I could help Ryno! You're good people and I know that... that's why I did it!
