We got both quarter panels filled in today. We just need to do a little final sanding and primer them to match. The fuel filler neck is now right inside the passenger quarter panel.

Thanks it was a PITA on the rear quarter panels. We started on the rear bumper but didn't quite get it finished Saturday.

We finished up the rear bumper and also finished the spring swap. My engine for the Jeep came in so we are going to take a break to get it back together then we will get shocks mounted all the way around the Zuk.

So I did some trading for a set of Toyota axles 4.53 gears, lockers in both, cross over steering set up with beadlocks and 36 inch TSL's. We are going to pick them up tomorrow. We are going to get these installed before we start the exo cage. Hopefully we don't have to do much more cutting but I think we may have to loose the front clip and tube it.

So I took today off to go to the dentist, but I had time to get the front axle under this thing and it looks awesome. We are going to loose the front clip and tube it out.....like Rickie wanted to do all along.

We got the rear axle installed tonight but it was too dark to get any pictures. I don't think we will have to cut any more on the rear but we will for sure need to build bump stops.

The rear axle was really close to the fuel tank so we moved the tank inside  for now until we can get all the stuff to go propane. We are going to remove the front clip tomorrow. :hack:
