Didn't install the pieces, just bent them up and notched them. That'll come tomorrow. I hope to have the cage done tomorrow.

Bah, you already knew what you wanted to do, just needed a little grinder action I was thinking last night on the way home, I'd give that windshield piece 1 more pump per side, that'll suck the width in and give you a little more clearance around the windshield wiper.

Didn't get as much done as I wanted, I had to spend the first few hours of my day chasing a ground in my dash is my wipers would work again

IDK I am not diggin the front of the cage, maybe it will grow on me. Its the way its gonna be till after the end of april atleast. Still more to do yet.

I did get the new p/s pump installed yesterday but I need to get a shorter belt.

And the knuckles are now removed and will press out the joint tomorrow at work and bring them in for warranty. I should also receive my new trans cooler from summit tomorrow so I will need to make a stop to Automasters to get some AN fittings to adapt it to my trans lines. I hope my new 4 points show up before 5pm Tues. Truck needs to be on the trailer and leaving for Attica after work Thurs. So I only have this evening (after easter dinner with the extended fam) Monday evening, Tues Evening and Weds evening.

Got the slider part of the cage finished tonight and what started out as wiring in my elec fan turned into relocating my battery lol.
