Lol. I guess I could just leave the kids home alone until she gets out of work. That'll show her.

Good progress last night. Body is on and some of the wiring harness cleanup started.

Many thanks to a good turnout of kb8ymf, kixx007, lucas, shawn & johnnyj. Unfortunately, I can't touch it again till Sunday.

Still more progress chugging away. All painting is done with final paint on the front fenders today. Most of the under dash stuff is done awaiting the actual dash/wiring to be wrapped up. Cage has been test fitted & in the process of making new seat mounts to tie the PRP seats into the cage. Once that happens, the cage can come out for paint & the dash will go in while the cage is out of the way. I hope to finish installing the front fenders later this week & then start building wheel wells. It should be close around Labor Day.
