          • Thanks again Chris! I will not need all of it. I'll get the rest of it back to you.

            Despite the lack of updates, I have been working on paint prep daily. Thanks to a day off, I got the tub mostly stripped on the 19th. Lots of welding holes up, finishing up little odds & ends, welding in a few surprise rust holes, etc. A bonus was spending a little time metal bumping on the tailgate brought it back from the scrap pile.

            The past few nights have been spent fabbing a better mount for the Tuffy box and making/locating/welding in seat belt tabs. Last thing will be the crossbar for the shoulder harnesses. Going to upgrade seatbelts to a pair of Corbeau auto retracting 3 point 4 strap harnesses.

                After seeing what happened to the cage on Too Twisted at KOH, I got motivated to finally get some gussets in.

                I am on the fence regarding door bars. My reservation is that I might end up slamming my elbow into it, all the time. I hit the door jamb as it is now.

                Either way all of the little stuff is done and sending for primer is the next step. The plan is to have the body on by this time next week.

                      I think you'll be alright with the door bar. You almost sit in the bed now. Maybe not put the rear of it as high, a little lower. But then again you got long elbows.. =P

                      • I would do like daves bolt and a pin so you can open it, or like the cage I just sold they were done on tube clamps so they can always be removed

                          That's what I am thinking Tom. Just don't hve the time to order the parts for it right now. Besides, Kevin has plans, involving lots of new tube. I was hesitant to do just this little bit of improvement, so I am gonna call this cage DONE! :)

                              • HUGE thanks to Alvin, he stopped by and stayed late last night to help me get ready for today. We sanded the firewall & cowl , vacuumed/blew out the tub, and then wiped down the entire tub with prep solvent.




                                HUGE thanks to Vasyl. Got a coat of primer and the first top coat on today.
