Tacked in place


Then burned it in, drilled all the mounting holes, then removed it, and now painting it.




The bronco was to tall and my roof was to low, I couldn't pull the cage up and over the wheel wells. I had to deflate all 4 tires to clear the ceiling lol.

I think I am gonna paint the body the bottom blue on the fender, its a flat oxford blue.

John, you better keep this one around for awhile. I'm diggin it. I know it sucks it feels like it is taking you a long time, but at least you are taking your time and doing some real nice work to it...............not that you don't do that normally, it is just nice to see it not in warp speed.
