Default 7yrs in the making

It's been nearly 7 years since I began collecting parts. ( I still need a 9.5x30x15 spare)

It now has 70 miles on the odometer

She's telling everyone about the work she did, which truly was alot.

She actually let me drive it yesterday

I still need to hook up the gauges and find some switched power at the fuse panel.
I gutted all the wiring that was not needed and got a little hasty.

Thanks!

not only to you Craig, but to everyone that has contributed to this build ( check out my I-Trader list..)

GL4x4 in general, has been a HUGE resource for me during the build.
