You've knocked this build out of the park! I'm looking forward to seeing those ORI's work. Thinking about switching mine over to those for the ease of tweaking.

Only thing actually attached is the grill the hood and fenders are just sitting in place. Hoping to have it torn down by weekend to get the welding taken care of painting by early next week.

Finally getting out of the lull and excited about it.

Was hoping to spend the day on the buggy, but work had other plans since a coworker went ass over tea kettle on his peddle bike and done hurt himself. I did get down to lane automotive and picked up a steering wheel for the wife and a pair of derale fluid coolers with fans attached.
