Some progress. Everything is painted now.




Seats are now tied into the cage.



Including the new bling sliders.



Need to finish seat belt tabs & a new tie in to the frame. Then the cage can come out for finish weld and paint.

Glad to see the passenger seat has been upgraded to include a harness

I've decided I don't want to go to Canada anymore because my paint is precious. Plus Canada, specifically GG is lame and boring.

Two things I noticed looking at it on the big screen and not the phone.

1. The grille is black. Is that so the chrome overlay really pops?

2. Is there a plan for the seat bar to have something to connect side to side?

1. Since I am trying to get ready for GG, the grill can be pulled & painted at a later date.

2. Not sure what you mean. Are you concerned about the weld on tab, the slider or the tube that is bolted to the floor?

Tube bolted to floor. I'm guessing pass side is similar, and is there something that connects it together, or will it just bolt to floor?
