Too bad those little Allisons (now RR) are so blasted expensive. They are great turbines for smaller single engine craft!

Just got some 5052-H38 aluminum alloy sheet metal for front skid plate, It does not really bend it has a very very high tensile strength I got a 4’x4’ sheet for $50 to help protect the goblin from speed bumps and potholes

I’d love to get those but I’m needing some heavy duty waterproof seats since I’m gonna be driving it a lot

I had bride version of those seats back in 2010 loved the color but the suede wears out after about a year of driving

I’m having the hardest time getting these radiator hoses ran through the chassis. I used a whole bottle of tire wet and even used a ratchet strap can’t get the hoses more than a foot before letting go and having to do it again

Put the hose in a box with a heater, and/or heat your shop up. Warm hose = flexible hose.

nobody in my area had “tire wet” in stock ended up using Lexus rubber lubricant/ tire shine. Just got one in with a full bottle and a ratchet strap :) time to do the other that might be the issue tho not being the actual tire wet

Nevermind after 2.5 hours I got both of them through. Geez I thought I was gonna break them when installing those hoses !!!

Tie wet is a silicone base lube and is about ten times slicker than tire shine which I think is soapy waster.
