02-16-2020 09:35 PM Roll bar finishing up
Today's update- I added the door bars and a rear cross bar with tabs for attaching seat belts to. I had to bend the cross bar, and all I have is a POS Eastwood tubing bender. I really need to step up to a quality mechanical bender, but that will have to wait. This one broke on me yet again today- the bottle jack blew out the big seal at the base. It just really wasn't a strong enough jack for this product. So I picked up a 12 ton jack at Harbor Freight and now it works again. I finished bending the cross bar and welded these in, and hit it with some spray paint.

Next I need to patch my floors back up, make some mounts for mounting the seat belts to the floor, make the front shock mounts (revise the lower and build the upper) and the fabrication part should be done. I'm sure I'll need to do something else, but off the top of my head I think this is it for the major fabricating.

After completing the rear seat mounts the seats can finally be bolted in the car. Next steps will be to create the door bars and the cross bar behind the front seats.

Started the rear seat mounts, and made bracing for the floor, too. Hope to finish this up next weekend.

Small update- more progress on my seat mounts. I've finished up the front mounts, welded in nuts on the underside of them, and have started the rear.
