for those interested, I will try to post all the info as I figure out which way to go, but we will be doing some sort of fire suppression system in it. just way too many rigs burning to the ground and I want to do what I can to not only protect a huge investment, but keep all the occupants safe as well.

kinda thinking 2-3 nozzles under the hood and one at the fuel cell. looking at stuff like this maybe
2 under hood and 1 on fuel cell... Anything bigger you have to get another bottle...

ReiKo... even with a 10# bottle or are you talking a 5#?
Not sure how packaging will work out so we'll see when we get closer

Thanks for the kind words from everyone.

thanks guys!!

John, you did a hell of a job finishing yours so I wouldn't worry too much about not getting a turn key. my wallet is gonna take a beating, but I positively don't have the time or the talent to do this myself so I am taking this route.

I could have a friend help out (same who did my s10), but it would take twice as long. I want to wheel!

PJ certainly seems to know his stuff and does awesome work.

all the joints should've showed up at the shop today so hopefully it's not too far from a true roller.

should be fun to drive with it being atleast 1000# lighter than the s10

for the record, it'll be all bowtie. we just had to be creative in order to get there

Is the grill from your S10? It's looking nice.

Nice. I love the tube work...little details like the slight radius on the front "fender" area are nice details. It's all about the aesthetics.

Oh, and just to sound like your typical web-wheeler a-hole, "Needs more triangulation!" LOL
