Cool I got busy today...

Today, I took my windshield out, and installed the rest of my cage for my truck...



Tomorrow, I'm going to take the roof off, and get it ready for the new skin we're putting on it...

So Doug, are you forced to run that stock brake setup or are you interested in doing some more weight reduction on the front of that thing? For comparison, heres the stock 4x4 brakes on my ranger (actually a 78 F-150 setup):



To convert it to this and I dropped close to 40lbs off:



Shoot me a pm, and I'll send you all the info and pics as a guide if you are interested.

Yeah Dave... Provided my sponsors keep up their end of the bargain... They're supposed to be paying for my fuel to get there and back... I'm hoping to have the new paint on it in a few weeks...
I got the roof off and got the cage finished up and painted yesterday... Here's a couple pics:


Gotta put some sheet metal over the holes in the firewall, and I'm getting the new roof tomorrow or Saturday...
I can't wait to see it with the new paint...

They all seem to get out of hand. I'm always biting off more than I can chew, knowledge wise and $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ wise! But I LOVE it.
