Is there a reason you went with the taller aspect ratio? I run 175/50-13's on my car. Are those Yokomama A539's?

Here you go.....I didn't finish it very well.   ::)  I did that after the radiator was already in place and I didn't want to take it out again.

I had to make a small notch in the fender for clearance on mine.

@Dave,  any chance you can take a pic or provide an idea of location of the notch you made?  This will simply serve as an awareness when I get mine and begin to check fit it

@ADRay,  keenly interested in seeing how yours goes in

No question, if everything else is working properly (water pump, block isn't full of sediment etc) that will do the trick!

That's a good idea - using a brush to work the sealer into all the sheltered areas that might not get direct spray. 

I might have found a guy with a spray gun and compressor who'd be willing to sacrifice a Saturday, so I might even get to use some decent paint!

Thanks for the many tips and good ideas -

Jim.. Apprecaiate it!  and you're right Hugh knows these Beach Boy Mokes.
 
 Hugh helped direct Jeff on this car actually .. then when it made it to Charlotte to my place, Hugh came over to check it out in person.
       Hugh knows these beach boy cars well  but hasn't seen one this complete.  he offered some nice insight and further pictures to Jeff from his catalogue of history. Along with  he documented some things for his future build.   (notes of the roof hooks for the surfboard)  or mouting of the 8track player  or fur left over for the firewall.


Hugh even had the' signs' on the side panels drawn up and in scale to re create when he was ready. He shared to Jeff.

    Jeff already has printed + painted the repro' signs ready to go for this car.

Thanks Gang...!

 Just to clarify  I Myself = Jedduh do not own this Moke...

It is a local guy named Jeff.   2016/2017 we also resurrected and Preserved a 66 Cooper S.  (parked beside Moke in 1 pic)
   
This is his next preservation.

Any additional details known about these Barris Mokes are lovely to find out or know. Jeff is doing his part and justice to find the right 're creation pieces.. I'm doing the' Running + Drivng work to get it back operational. hes doing the preservation right = I would be putting gas in it and DRIVE it!

Aluminum 4 hole hood scoup (still must find the bonnet adapter)
8 track player + building speakers  with appropriate voltage rectifier  box
tassles + fringe to install on a custom red/pink top
 Sign shop recreation of the side 'barris decals"

Regarding info on this Moke check with Hugh Cannon if you have not done so already he has a Beach Boys Moke and has been doing some research. I have his contact information details if you need them Justin.
