Why do you do this? Got a bad ground or are you a sweaty worker?

You must have bare arms? Try to get the budget tan?

I was wearing a hoodie, I rest my forearm on the material so I can hold my hand steady.

My dad thinks the ground was loose on the clamp and that helped some of it but I still get a shock every now and then. It feels like someone sticks a dull needle into your arm. I have about 18" of weld left on the tunnel and I dont want to do it.....

from what I heard you should probably have someone else finish welding it anyway.

It will break at some point, for no reason at all, no question about that.

Easier said than done.

The tunnel is just about done, welded, outside is finished off and I have the shifter mount welded on too. I need to mount it and work on finishing off the interior panels and maybe the firewall this week. Hopefully I'll have some parts from Mac soon so I can finish up the winch mount, front bumper, belly skid and engine skid. After that and the exhaust it'll be getting close to tear down.... Hopefully in a month or so.

Not possible!

Fan mounts are made, just need to weld them on.

It's almost time to finish the tube work..... Maybe, just MAYBE I'll be wheeling this year.

They arent supposed to be! They are parallel to the edge of the seat they are next to. If they were parallel, the shifters would be into my thigh....
