Install gas tank cap bezel.
We lifted it off the ground with the hoist & started the engine and verified the shifter and brakes work. Now I need to charge the shocks and it can be driven.
It looks like I will need to remake one of my windshield hoop to cage tie in's, it just doesn't line up quite right. We also had a minor setback where my brake lights & turn signals are acting up. With some research, it seems that it might be the wiring harness connector (OEM) or possibly my turn signal switch is malfunctioning. So, that's going to create some aggravation.
