    Well, the NEXT time, and there will be a next time Bill, you will install the cargo box AND the jail bars AT THE SAME TIME. See, I just saved you a ton of time on your NEXT project Wagon. There, well I feel better....
    lol. I hope no next time... I was more curious about these bars than wanting or needing them... Like, I just wanted to see them.

    Thanks Bill! The only use (and still not very useful) I have seen for these is some guy strung like 38,008 tree shaped air fresheners between the two bars. I think they are supposed to keep things from breaking the windows since they are offered on "the crappiest model of Wagon- the Wagovan/Civic Pro..." and those are like cargo vans in Japan.

    Updates. Got a dilivery.




    Beagle doors. I just wanted a few bits off of them... I was going to do an auto window swap, but am still contemplating that...

    In the mean time I will take the visors. The Rear visors showed up trashed, but the fronts were good.
    Luckily some dude on Facebook posted some miscellaneous visors for sale. So I was able to put together a complete set.



    I cleaned them up






    And installed.











    I will likely sell the doors with pretty mint door cards and the auto window parts... I dunno...

    The Mugens were sold. They are currently on a Honda Beat.

    The guy that bought them (Jake) is a really cool dude. He let me drive the Beat and then bought me a beer. A+ dude.

    Small nothing update, but good info for anyone thinking of adding rear wagovan jailbars to their wagon.... Advice: Don't.


    So I ran into an actual wagovan today at the salvage yard. Which is great because I had so many question with how the rear jail bars mount.

    All questions answered.

    The wagovan has a bonus bracket. Drill it out- I did not have a drill. I used a chisel and hammer.

    I removed excess metal at home, sprayed black, and re-installed. I also took the wagovan plastics from the wagovan at the yard...

    Finally got around to doing a not-so-quick respray on these stock rollers...

    They look ok from 5 feet away, but up close- meh. Really they should be stripped and powdercoated, but I still can't decide if these wheels are worth that cost?

    I dunno. I like the stock wheels fine, but there a lot of other wheels out there that are a lot cooler.

    Nothing is as cool as stock steelies!! Maybe stock rebarreled steelies but still don't know if it's as good.. I think you should keep them.

    Updates?

    Wood inserts brought to you by FoxDesignsEtc aka Prennro.... I made the cup holder portion out of skateboard- its shitty craftsmanship but it works.



    Strut bar brought to you by strykar82 aka 4WD-TwinCam...


    New project wheels brought to you by some guy in Malaysia... Should be re-finished by 2020. lol






    Spring has sprung.
