Im going to build a cage for it then from there, go towards the back with some tube. Make some sort of storage above the 30 gallon gas take, for a box or something, but not sure. Might cut the rockers off also and fab up some sort angle rockers off of the frame at like 30 or 40 degree's out of tube or 1/4 plate, but not sure on that idea. It really all depends when I want to wheel. If I want to wheel sooner I will do less, If Im to worried about wheeling until Feb,March I might do more. Just had a new baby boy in Sep. so its tuff to get extra time.

Thats one way to combat rust, cut the body off.

Now get out there with some construction paper and safety scissors and get to work.Kinda looks how mine does right now.
