Not much more progress but trans mount is finished and tacked in. started extending the rear frame rails. next I need to mock suspension links and start bending tube for the cab area. Then I can get seats mounted and make floor pans. slow and steady she's making progress...lol

I need to get it in high gear 154 days to get it done..

I know its pretty unrealistic but Id like to try and get granfathered into the current Ultra 4 rules before the weight and tube specs change next year, since its a 4 seater Im sure she will be over the 4k mark. I dont plan to do much racing but I would like it to be up to tech specs.

Does this mean that the seats will be 5" closer? They look a bit far apart in this pic. We will not be able to comfortably hold hands with this configuration.

I think those seat bars are going to catch a lot of boulders and trees.
