Finished with step 4. As I was getting ready for step 5 I realized I get to remove the fixtures. It is still tacked to the table.

Set hood on while we cleaned up a little around the shop.

All tubes are in the chassis. Still need to build the sub-chassis. Nice to be in the shop working with the doors open.

I think i found my first mod I will need to do. The B pillar diagonals prevent the seats from sliding back to the cross member.

2x4 was just there to try and see how much it would need to lift, but with my size, I'm going to need the seats low and back.

My buggy was same way. I bent headrests forward just a bit and things worked out well.

Did you do it the right way and take the seat apart and bend the frame, or is there a lazier way?

I guess I did it the lazy way. There where tubes in the front of the buggy that worked great to slip the headrest in between. Then I just pushed down on seat until head rest was at desired angle. No rips no problems. Quick and easy!

That's what I was hoping to hear.

If you bought his interior panel kit I'd recommend redoing the two diagonals that go from the dash bar to shock hoop to follow the contour of the panel. Wish I would've caught it on AJ's before it was fully welded. Will give you alot more engine bay room around heads and look better also.

Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering if I should wait on welding out the chassis until I mock up a few things.

I did buy the interior kit, so I'll bring it out and take a look at what you're saying.

Threw the seat in to see how I fit. I'm about 6-2 and not skinny. If I tuck the seat back down I can get a fist between my head and the cage, which I'm ok with. But I think I need to install the drivetrain and seat and figure that out before it anything bug gets fully welded.

Sad you are so out of the loop that you don't understand the correlation. I used to think you were current
