Thread: Home at last!

    Home at last!

    Well we picked up my289 usrrc complete kit Monday am. We've got about 1/2 the inventory done and as a reward, we installed the front suspension. There are a couple of nuts that I can't get a torque wrench on, so I just tightened the snot out of them. I'm going to start a blog this weekend and I'll post some pictures.

    Should be fun.

    Awesome! Welcome home, and congratulations on getting started with your 289.

    I look forward to following along with your build. As japollon mentioned, there aren't a great deal of 289 builders out there, so it would be great to read a build thread!

    Good luck with your build!

    Welcome from another 289 builder! Have fun, and don't be afraid to ask questions. There are a few detail differences with the 289. Be sure you have the latest 289 addendum to the instructions. There are a handful of us in various stages of build right now. I'm very close to first prime.
