Our Moggster is under some changes (suspension, tyres etc).....actually car is just waiting it's turn to get indoors.

Popo sold his Vekara to new owner who really likes his new toy.

Hippo is re-building Tamagotchi.....hope he gets it done for 2008 season.

Mud Rod is ok...some small changes maybe

Samulis Kuksa is just been "modelling" for finnish motorsport magazine VM, so that's ready and waiting.

Simelius is making some changes to his Black and mog axled big block Jeep:

Popos old car has changed some of the looks. New owner Vesku has been driving and practising whole winter i think:

What size of IROK have you bought??

I remeber the finish T-shirts.. "Get a life, get BOGGERS"

We have made our own version "Get your life back... burn your BOGGERS"

Oh my god.....i hope you didn't ask.....


I've been having some motivation problem lately + last few days had fever and flue:( Today finally I dragged myself to garage to see if I should start making something.....maybe start with cleaning and then I saw Moggster.......well at least what's left of it:eek::eek: Old man had cut of cage, suspension etc. all body panels were gone.....it looked really little as a moggster. Only thing that was left in place was engine, main frame and axles......sooo it looks that I better start to motivate myself to work again, if we plan to drive it this summer in NorwayThefinger

Had no camera with me so no pictures yeat.

.....but I have few other pictures.


This one is propably going to be prototype car after all. So far it has been built for Pro-Modified, but since the rules are getting tighter in Euro Trials for PM Tare has started to think for 4 wheel steering parts......well he actually has all the steering parts allready at home and also set of new iroks....... new 300-350hp small block chevy crate engine is also sailing it's way to Finland + airshocks, seats etc too. But he told that this is not yet ready for 2008 euro trial........Tare had a plan to build even a another mog axled 4x4 just for finnish trial competitions.....we just have to wait and see what he is up to:shaking:

Previously I mentioned that Pete Simelius is rebuilding his Black CJ. Here's few shots of his freshly built cage/body.
http://static.petrisimolin.com/gallery/data/images/Jare-Simeliuksen-tallilla-150308%20001.jpg

I really dig it. Rear of the body looks good and tough. Cage is not so high and wide anymore than it was last summer.

And the 454cid Chevy sits nicely up in the front.

Disc brakes are also coming. I really liked the way those brake lines had a support wire....propably some stainless steel 2-3mm wire that keeps the brake lines on their place.

Thats true what Tommy said. Our new wheels for Moggster are actually built out of three wheels + some iron.......yes they could be done easier, but old man wanted to make them out of all junk what he found around the yard:laughing:

In that picture above the welding burns are not from making the wheels wider. Pete just made a protection for inner beadlock bolts so that there wouldn't be so much rocks and other shit going around his brakes. His brake calipers are really really close to wheels and if there would be room for rocks they might do some damage.
