The rear frame cross member that the lower control arms mount to was made from 1.75x0.188 wall and was tweaked after one season. Next up is 2x0.25.

If you're going to be out there, we have our Hammer Town address. We will be at 105 Rugged. Looks like we will be by Branik and Jesse Haines.

Me too. I'm trying to get mine back together this week and I still need to do one more prerun before Snofari. If I can get that out of the way this week I'll be freed up to help more.

Some progress pics from the past few days. AlumCJ and Hosejockey finished up the front tube work over New Years.



We started working on the tins yesterday and today. Passenger side is getting there.



Not everything has to be re-made, but Mike moved the switch panel up overhead to keep it dryer and is rearranging the shifters. There's also extra foot room with the reworked front end. Hosejockey made the new Atlas shifter handles.

Hammer down guys, this month is going to go fast.

If I wasn't returning from Jamaica the day after you guys pull out of town I would be begging for a seat for the trip out to Hammer Town.
