    Update - The wife and I made a decision to keep the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif for now AND get a /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif as soon as we can! She is WAY cool with my hobby (more like obsession!) and doesn't want to see me heartbroken because I had to sell my '74 to get a burb. Is she COOL or what! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif So with that decision came the mutual approval to do fix it up and get it travel worthy. WOOT!!!

    I'm thinking of selling my '74. The more I think about it, the more a sub makes sense. I'd LOVE to keep it and tunr it into a trail only rig, but I don't have the funds for that. I need opinions and ideas here. Also, maybe even some suggestions on price. I've dumped a ton of cash intot he thing and I'm still not done, but I may sell/trade it for a burb and I don't want to get ripped off. I'm thinking $3500 is a fair price for a RUST FREE full topper??

    Re: Testing the waters...

    Yup! Believe it or not, everything installed works correctly! /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif The only thing that I don't have working right now is the AC. That may change this week though! I took it out to do some work to the top end of the engine and never put it back. I have all the pieces and parts, I just need to put it back and charge it up. Then it should blow ICE COLD! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The only major mechanical thing is that is has an oil leak at the front of the oil pan. I am going to try to get that fixed within the next couple weeks. I cant stand oil leaks! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Anyway, if someone is seriously interested, I can put together a list of all the new parts/mods, and a list of what it needs. The need list is actually pretty small and easy. The want list is HUGE however! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
