I don't have anything behind it right now. I could try to tie it to the cage when I put it in. I guess I'll just hope for the best for now. The cowls never seem to last long anyway Nothing will last long if I drive it like you drive yours

Skid ready for paint and goes in for good....


Need idea's for the front bumper. Need something to support the grill hoop that doesn't look fugly. I think this looks goofy because the angles are not the same due to the distance they travel. Ideas?



Planning on heading to the Badlands early April so cutting it off and starting over isn't really an option at this point..............though I've thought about it for the long run.

Skid it almost done, picked up brake lines today. Finish battery hold down tray and Chris almost finished the coilover remote resi brackets. Hoping to get brakes done tomorrow. Limit straps in the back and exhaust from there and I "should" be ready for a shake down.

I have to get H clips for the front calipers, didn't have those today. Only got 2 of 7 stainless hoses spec'd out right. Seem to be taking a couple steps backwards everytime I think I'm going to make progress. I did get the brackets for the proportioning valve and parking brake done today. Also have coilover resivour mounts ready to be put on. Hope to get more done wednesday night.

Still might end up cutting the front off

Skooterbuilt, if you want those white uppers in semi decent condition still you should probably get me some replacements before April 8th I'll be at the Badlands
