well I finished welding the cage in.....got the seat mounts in, had seats mounted for fit than took them out to weld a couple seams up in the floor that were part of an idea that sounded better than actually worked

oh yeah it was hot today as well.........oh well, in the name of progress, the leathers and hood and gloves came out.





the seat brackets and cross bars didn't turn out so bad I don't think

fixing the "idea" LOL



the start of the new front crossmember/stubby bumper/winch mount




still need to make the fish plates, or whatever they are called to tie welded tube to unitbody, and add the bumper part of the crossmember and other odds and ends......will be back at it in the a.m.

got a little further on it yesterday.............my dad cleaned the inside out and vaccumed the sand out from sandblasting and wiped it down with acetone, then he rolled on the rustoleum bedliner............turned out pretty good. while he was doing that I removed the front fenders and headerpanel, and starting prepping the engine and tranny for removal. We will be back at it this afternoon if the rain holds off.
