I will be taking my off road Thingster with the 2054 motor.

I am going to delift the 4" and get it back to standard, even though it will be a bit higher with 15" wheels and bigger tyres.

Success, I managed to find my stock spindles.
I am going to put the Thingster back to stock height, for my drive back to Kubel Treffen East. My plan is to drive my Thingster to KTE, fly back to san Jose. Drive my 63 singlecab to Seattle, maybe go to Alaska, and drive back to San Jose. Then in August I will fly out to Asheville NC, to pick up the Thingster and drive back to Cupertino. I just feel that 2500 miles in five days, is too much to feel in shape when you get there.

I did find that American airlines flies into Asheville, and there is a good flight to and from the SF Bay area.

Anybody want stuff moved from CA to KTE , let me know.

Here is how the Thingster looks now, I will get better pics.
I will be driving, the trailer is to go to the Mojave desert, and feel fresh when I get there, also I have broken a lot of stuff, but think everything is now indestructible!

I am very happy with my winch installation, and will be driving all the way with a bikini top. Very noisy with my A1 Thing special sidewinder exhaust.

Change in plans,
I don't have to go to Seattle the weekend after, so I will slowly drive back to California.
I have decided to keep the Thingster lifted 3 inches, so it is all go.
I added the CB performance 'Jet Doctor' to the Webers so hopefully the blocked idle jet problem has gone away.
Mojave Road will truly tell.

What dates do I need to book for the hotel??
