Feva came over and helped me lift the cage back into the tub. I also laid some paint on the fender and 1/4 to see how it looked.

The pic really distorts the cage in the Left front half. Pic makes it look really odd.

Soon lol.

I need to get it mobile so I can bring it somewhere to get the exhaust done.

If anybody knows someplace in West Michigan that can basically cut my y-pipe off a few inches from the manifolds (to retain the flange that seals to the manifold) and build a new y-pipe into a single 2.5" pipe, add a muffler, then get funky with a tail pipe. It would be greatly appreciated. My traction bar on the rear kinda complicates the pipe routing a bit.

Well right now the simple short list of things to do...

Go to pick and pull and get a windstar dual fan set-up, headlight switch and knob, fuse panel cover.

Finish dash with install of headlight switch
Make the fuel filler neck and buy a gas cap.
Wire in the ext. lights and wire in heater
Mount seat belts
mount the doors
redo the entire underhood wire harness
install and figure out my cooling system
build front bumper and install tow points on rear bumper
build front and rear driveshafts
aquire limit straps for the front
possibly convert rear drums to disc if time and $ allow
paint and mount hard top
modify hood to allow attachment of windshield when folded down.
and paint.
