So my rims and tires came in this week. I'm very happy with them. I did a quick mock up to measure for my axle trimming (although I am digging the '70's look with them sticking out. Maybe I should just add some flares and call it a day, ha ha) and to make sure the fronts would fit. I have a tiny bit of rubbing on the backs of the wheel openings against the allen bolt heads. I could just take the bolts out, ha ha. The top of the wheels are a bit close to the fenders but the front end isn't aligned yet. They look to have + camber right now... I also painted the cage modification, started on my air intake assy (need more parts to finish this) and I wrapped my windshield trim in flat black 3M wrap. It was a productive weekend.

I was able to add the additional tubes on my roll bar this weekend. Next will be to sand down the mess/ burnt paint, and repaint it.

Still alive. Just saving money for expensive parts and have been busy with other events. In the meantime I ran across a thread about rollbars/ cages so now I want to modify mine to connect to the frame rails. Fortunately, I have enough extra metal around to not have to buy anything for this little project. I made some plates and welded them into the floor using many plug welds and around the edges. Not sure if it shows but the area is double layered. Next will be the tubing itself.

I also modified my welding cart with heavier duty wheels, a frame on the bottom for strength, and a handle. The 200 lb tank was too much for the stock cart.

And picked up some seats...

01-19-2015 08:44 PM Rear seat delete
This weekend I made some panels for the rear seat delete. I used sheet metal to also act as a rear firewall and covered it with vinyl. I also started on a panel to close the gap between my radiator and core support to help force the air through the radiator.
