Lol. I expressed that concern, she’s sewing the roll cage tie ins on separate of the top itself so it’ll be easier to repair in the future. The reason I’m getting a custom one made is because last time I was inverted I tore the bikini top I was running.

Not quite Jeep related, but fab related. Our senior welding engineer worked with me on tig welding yesterday for a couple hours. Second time I’ve ever successfully used filler rod with tig welding, pretty proud of myself. Made huge progress yesterday.

Mr. Trempe was over last week and we were doing a little bit of prep for the Rush U4 race and happened to notice all of my torque converter bolts were loose. Currently stripping the exhaust out so I can get the starter off and access the bolts. In the meantime my wife is working on finally priming and painting the cage. Week and a half left before we leave!

Anyone else headed south for the race? Troy Carr is putting my Jeep on his trailer and I’m bringing the fifth wheel for lodging.

Dropped a few tires off at to get hot vulcanized this weekend. Only ended up leaving 3 of the 4 tires to get repaired, one tire (center in this pic) had 5 spots needing repair and it just wasn’t cost effective. I’ll throw some cold compound on it and keep it for a spare.
