I'd pay a good fab shop to finish it.
I couldnít handle having someone else working on my rig !

The buggy did good in Florence until I broke both stock 30 spline outers. Replace them with chromo 35 splines and CTM's. We hit Table Mesa and had no  issues at all it worked really great. I built some side panels out of plastic and it looks a lot better. I still need to make a hood but it's slowly getting there.

Well with all the work I have been doing I hadnít updated much. Itís just about ready for FF it wonít have side panels or hood this time but it soon will have. I hade to relocate two tubes on the rear that I thought would clear the tires but didnít, and adjust the track bar to keep the front drive shaft from hitting the frame. Hope this last 74 days of busting a** on building this rig will all be worth it when this thing works great this weekend. It will be great to be out wheeling with yíall again!

I have been sick all damn week, but have tried to keep going as I could. We got the fuel cell and pump mounted. I have the wiring about half done, gonna pick up the rest of the AN fittings I need for the fuel system tomorrow and hopefully get it fired up Saturday.

I was able to complete the floorboards, seatbelt mounts. I got the front lights put on, battery mount done, brake lines all secured. I set all my links and locked them down, put the switch panel and gauges in the dash. I pulled the wiring harness apart and removed the stuff I won't need and now need to wrap it all back up and start wiring in all the relays and fuses. Still waiting  on the fuel cell and fuel pump, hope to have it running  this weekend.

Brake system is done and the lines just needs to be tied to the frame and links. Radiator, transmission cooler and winch are all mounted. I got the rear shocks mounted and charged and the front pan hard bag built so itís holding itself up. The rear seat mounts are done as is the rear floorboard. I added a few more tubes for strength and got the triple sticks mounted and new linkage made and they work great.

For the first time since I started this build I donít have any ratchet straps holding anything in place! I finished the doubler mounts. I took tomorrow off work to get three days on this thing. The fuel cell, pump and shifter all got ordered today.

I got the custom adapter in place shortened the transmission tail shaft and got the doubler bolted up after reworking the frame. Currently building the cross members.

I put the rear brake calipers and pads on. The orbital valve and steering shaft are all completed. I was able to modify and mount the gas pedal from the van I pull the engine and transmission from. Made a simple dash for gauges and what not. TJ finished my adapter for the doubler, I need to pick up some bolts and put it together.  I didnít get to work on it at all Saturday considering there was 7 1/2 inches of water running through my shop after all the rain.

Finished my full hydro mounts and tie rods, installed the front calipers and brake pads. Got the new Wiillwood brake pedal installed and started working on the orbital valve and steering shaft mounting.

Built shock hoops for the front tonight and had to loose the hood, I built a nice tube front end and got the front shocks put on and holding itself up. I will need to set them later but they are good for now. Took the next two days off to get more done.

I took a few days off work to get some stuff done, even though it pored for two days I still got quite a bit done. I got the rear four link done and the front 3 link done except I still need to build the trac bar. I picked up a doubler, but have to custom make an adapter to my 4L80E as nobody sells one. Picked up brakes, radiator and steering parts. PSC ram is mounted, going to push to get the brakes, steering and shocks completed this week.

Since I'm cheap I made the factory manifolds work, I cut the bottom part off that was hitting the frame and welded in a piece of 2 inch exhaust tubing to get it behind the firewall and away from the frame. Once the transfer case is in I will figure out what to do with the rest of the exhaust.

I got both front and rear axles cleaned up. Found that my rear diff already has a grizzly locker so I welded the truss on it and just need to put the brakes together. The front axle got new rotors, bearings repacked and new seals then Lincoln locker installed. Iím waiting on the front truss to get it welded into place. I need to pick up the steering parts so I can get the mounts made for the ram. The rear axle is sitting in its approximate spot. Still have a lot of parts to get and a lot of work to get done before FF.

So I spent most of this weekend cleaning up crappy tube work and rebuilding the front loop for more radiator/fan room. I relocated the seat mounts to fit the new seats. I pushed the hood forward about 7 inches and will extend the cowl to meet the new hood location.

Plenty of head room and feet room for the rear seat.
