this is my first and fifth DSM. i bought it with a broke timing belt and ruined head. proceeded to put a reman head on it and clean up some of the issues and drove it around with a big 16g for about a year. 1 day the oil pump plug from the balance shaft eliminator kit popped out and after some diagnostics (leak down tests and oil testing) it was determined the tired old engine needed work (low compression, huge blow by). the build started. 15 years later, i am going to start assembling it. since then i have had several other DSMs come and go, a dozen cars, more motorcycles and ATVs than i can count. my side job is rebuilding vehicles for profit, so this SAD PANDA always takes a back seat to whatever other vehicle i am refurbishing.

today that changes. i do still have 1 project ATV to finish up, and theres always the possibility of finding something newer or better for my kids. but no more "hey theres a nice rebuilder" until this SAD PANDA is happy again.
