I got most of the body stripped tonight & have a few more misc items to pull off it. Then I'll cut out the new wheel wells and the fuel pump access. Then strip the donor grill, tailgate & hood and off those items go to blast. I'm going buy a new windshield frame since it's been fubarred since before my windshield hoop.

While at KOH I scored a good deal on a new set of PRP folding seats which will be tied into the cage. New Genright tube fenders have been ordered. Also bought the remaining needed Currie johnny joints to replace the rear upper links. A new Grizzly comp locker will go in the rear to replace the spool and new Yukon lockouts for the front. This should make it more streetable for the mandatory trips to DQ. The drive flanges will be kept as spares if I break a lockout. Many thanks to Dale at Ironman for parts & pieces.
Sounds like a screen name change is in order... pinkrhino

Exactly! After all the shit I got for painting mine! I think he should keep the tube fenders and corner guards in raw steel like he apparently wanted me to do.

Actually I got up 1/3 to 1/2 way without a wild ass run. My rear tires were higher than the fronts in that pic. Not every obstacle requires a "here, hold my beer" approach.

True, but every obstacle that's worth doing is.

Was that the second or maybe the third obstacle where you offered to let me out first?
