Looks like them rear shocks are going to bottom out (not much down travel). My springs have a lot more leaves than yours and there is at least 7 inches of down travel when I'm hitting the rough stuff. jm2c

You mean up travel? Like the axle moving up? There is just short of 8 inches of up travel on the shock there and it will be bump stopped. Plus the tops are moved in so there is even more travel available.

Yep up travel :tonka: and bump stops will help. I don't use them but have a larger spring pack and am amazed how much the axle moves.

Yes, but not much you can really "see". Christmas break has slowed progress. I got lots of welding in the rear wheel wells done. The other day it too 5 hours to get the front driver's seat mounted....long story...Welded up the front part of the cage. Drilled some of the front bumper mount holes. Lots of cleaning and sanding has been done also.

Rear wheel wells all welded up. Mig welded the seam back together from the outside, then brazed it from the inside, then applied panel bonding epoxy on the inside. Will be plenty strong.

Very nice job on the wheel wells. When you re-paint the exterior are you going to just do the same color again?

Sorry! It's just kind of a universal word for bedlining for me now.

Did those blue rollers come with the Durabak, or did you buy them somewhere?

No, they come with the product. You get 2 rollers with a gallon of textured. The smooth Durabak requires no special rollers. You can use any roller you want. Both can also be applied with a brush. Both can be sprayed also but you need a special gun for that. The Xylene was purchased locally though.

Ok, got more done.

Pulled all the crappy headliner material off the headliner.



Then is looked like this. I soaked it all down with fiberglass resin.



Tomorrow i'll glue the new headliner material onto it. I got actual headliner material from Jo-Ann Fabrics.



While that was drying and the paint for the roll cage was drying we started the sliders/steps.

The part that will be bolted to the pinch weld. 15 bolts will hold it on. Prolly overkill but whatever. LOL



2x2 3/16 box tube.







Bent up the step part. This will also pull double duty to keep the body away from things. Tube is 1/4 wall.





The roll cage toll be plated through the floor and then welded to the cross bars that hold the sliders on to tie it into the frame a bit. That's more the reason we went with so many bolts.



Not the bestest welder, but I am learning. I have a good teacher, he's 17 years old. hahahaha



This is the basic design. There will be one more leg in the rear for a total of 3.

Timmay,

Why bolt the sliders on and not weld them?

Because.....well......I dunno.

That's how all of them I have seen have been for the most part. Bolted to the pinch seam.

I guess so they can be removed to paint. Be hard to paint them after they were wended on.
