Please tell me you are not keeping track of your hours on this thing.... I don't want to see the price tag if your are! This is why it would be difficult to make money on custom fabrication... unless it is maintained to a select item that can be made with a jig to help aid in efficiency.

Most professional fabricators, even the ones who put out work 10x as good as mine, are way faster at it than I am.....obviously. I haven't been keeping track of hours, but best I can figure is in the 2000 ballpark. That's ridiculous....

Well she's all torn apart for cleanup, finish welding, some minor frame mods, and paint. I need a bigger garage


It's also as clear as ever that I waste entirely too much time on stupid little details that no one will ever see or care about. On one hand I want to get it done ASAP, but on the other I came this far, why cut out the attention to detail now? Hopefully this kind of stupid crap is what will end up setting this rig/build apart from the rest. Perfect example is stupid little crap like this:
Tub notched out to clear modified frame, body mount bosses added, looks unfinished to me.


Soooooo I boxed it all in and cut down the outer portion so I don't have to worry about tire clearance with the wheelbase stretch.

I'm doing my best to make it tree-proof, but I know damage is still bound to occur. Let's call it tree resistant
