That guy is taking pics of your cool ride and is probably wondering what the heck it is.

Gang,

I've noticed many of these "micro trucks" on large school campuses.  They get used for all kinds of deliveries and hauling supplies & equipment to work sites.  That said, I've never seen one on a public road... probably for obvious reasons.

Yeah they'd get swallowed up by just about every truck on the road! Then again, you could hide in just about any truck shadow and stay out of direct sunlight!  :))

My turn signals never worked when I bought it so after a couple weeks of searching with no luck I bit the bullet and and ordered a used multifunction switch from Japan. New replacement was $300 and used was still painful at $170.
I finally used a puller I have had for 10 years. Back then with coupon it was probably $8 bucks, I canít remember.

If you canít fix it with a hammer, it must be electrical.

While I was on a roll I went to Wally World to replace the 15 year old rubber. I doubted that it would fit their lift and I was right.  So they just used a floor jack. LOL.  I maxxed out the fender clearance by stepping up to whopping 175/65r14. Those bad boys stand a proud 23 inches tall!!!

Nice work on the turn signal assembly.

Does it even have an airbag in the steering wheel? I thought all street legal vehicles had to meet the DOT safety requirements for the year they were built unless itís over 25 years old. I could be wrong about that. I couldnít even get that out of my driveway. Even the speed limit on my road is 45 mph and the speeds get higher as my road connects to other roads. The nearest road with a speed limit of 40 or under is about 10 minutes away. You have to just about get to the town square before the speed limit drops that low. No houses way out here so you get to drive faster but youíre at greater risk of rear ending a combine.

No airbag, just a piece of glass to save you.  :))

And Yes Ray I thought the same thing.  :))

I bought that same puller Bob. I got it for the assortment of bolts-----that ya can't buy for 9 bucks.  ;)
If it aint broke----fix it till it is-----there's nothing more permanent than a temporary fix.
