Some small updates today, literally. No small amount of work, though. I noticed that when I put my roll bar in it interfered with where the dome light would go, and since I took the roof support out the dome light mount came out as well so I took this time to relocate it. I ended up chopping it out, moving it back, and adding some filler material before reinstalling the roof support. I also made some plates to fill in the unsightly holes in the floor I made while installing the roll bar.
Today I finished up fitting the pass down tube, made some gussets with smaller diameter DOM tubing, and welded it all in. I had an "aw crap" moment when I realized that my cage fit so tight that I couldn't slide my bars forward enough to lower them to weld the top halves. To solve this I had to remove the support that runs across the roof panel. Glad that was only spot welded at the ends and not along the roof itself. I did make 2 slight positive bumps in my roof moving the cage forward, oh well. I'll see if I can tap them back down at a later point. I also rattle canned the bars to minimize flash rusting. At a later point I'll add a bar that runs across the main hoop for mounting seatbelts after I get seats, mount them and all that. Same for adding angled tubing from that point to the frame rail itself. In the meantime I will add a few attachments to the body to stiffen the body, and a few more gussets, too.
Just a few hours today so i worked on mocking up the driver side down tube. It fits better than shown in the pic, it was difficult to hold it flush and take the pic. I tacked it to the main hoop and will start on the pass side next time.
