I have to pay someone to do tube work, you wouldn't happen to know of anyone would you?

The list(I'm sure I'm forgetting things too)
-Mount radiator and source hoses
-Make mounts for hydro assist
-Remove AC compressor and make mount for 2nd alternator
-Tear axles down, buy gears and lockers, reassemble with disc brake kit
-Notch tub to make room for front driveshaft
-Twin stick D300 and make shifters
-Pull drivetrain, modify holes in Ax-15 for D300, finalize tranny mount.
-Run brake lines and modify master cylinder if needed.
-Run exhaust
-Solder 4 wires for fuel pump, run evap hose from rollover valve.
-Flat skid
-Source and modify driveshafts
-Cut and install rear corner guards

And then I still need to pay someone or buy a bender and do the tubework for the front end and cage.
It's a shorter list but still a ton of work to be done.

Weekend progress included getting tabs welded onto my radiator, finishing rear bumpstops, modifying rear fuel cell cover and filler area and welded in my rear shock mounts.

Front bump cans cut off, shortened, and welded in place in the rear with my turned down chevy bumpstops to allow the springs to move.

Modified fuel cell cover to allow fuel fill from the wheel well. If it doesn't work out, I'll run a hose to the actual fender and install the stock filler into the corner guard.

Saved $45 by not buying the 45 deg RCI fuel filler, they're mild steel anyway.......cut, weld, paint.

So yeah, little by little still.
