If you two knuckleheads want to see it thats fine. I'll be welding more of the cage in tomorrow, and could use a couple hands.

Finished the cage yesterday, except the frame cross bars, and the bars out the back window. Yes the primer is still wet. My welding is getting much better, for a guy who has done it 100% by myself. Turns out I actually enjoy it. LOL





Made a seat mount for it too. It will bolt to the floor, then the seats are connected to the roll cage

Looking good man. Wouldn't you want to take out the interior panels and headliner for weight reduction, or is that not a significant amount of weight?

No I want to keep it looking uuuummmm stockish. LOL, and besides it should have more than enough on tap to make up for the extra 50 or so pounds.

Oh it was not planned, however if you happen to miss one nut, and start to remove it, it becomes a mosaic. LOL
