well the weekend is over didnt really touch it today but i did mount the fuel cell or i should put made the mount for the cell..got it all together ill take it to work tomorrow to TIG the inside welds and add some gussets no pictures of it yet tho, and i started to smooth the rear of the frame down..im going to "shave" the frame all the holes that arent being used will be welded up and smoothed over..ill paint the frame black when i get done to paint the truck..

im waiting for a box from Ballistic fab this week on Thursday, im going to be back in Cali on Thursday-Tuesday so no worky on it for this weekend but its getting there -- slowly but little work on it gets me that much closer

well it rained ALL weekend but i had all weekend off and was planning on working most of the weekend on it but yea that didnt happen -- but i did get my 220 hooked up at my house so i got the welder running yesterday i welded in the rear crossmember for the fuel cell -- i gotta get another piece of tube for the front mount and ill fab up my fuel cell holder thingy

i have all the ballistic fab brackets welded up ready to be mounted, waitng on some DOM to be bent from a buddy of mine, for my hoops and misc stuff..the steering box can go on now, and i have started to smooth the frame..

but with all that said NO PICS hah -- i get busy in the zone and dont take pics but hopefully its sunny here today and after work i can get some of my work in the past few days..
