Engine and transmission crossmembers are rough cut. Should be able to smooth them out and weld in tomorrow

Progress on the Motor and Trans Mounts. Everything is at least tacked. Still need to plate and finish weld.

Thanks for posting up here, because if it is only on facebook, I'll never see the rest of the build.

Thanks! There is a Bug build also but the body shell has been stuck at the sandblaster for quite a while now (they missed some key areas). It should go back together quickly once I get it back.

The build is available here:

Relocating the Headlight Buckets



Gutted much more floor to further lower the cab



Cab will drop one more inch



All of the metal on the cab and doors below the blue tape will go.

Now I see why you're relocating the headlights. Dropping the body has really changed the look. Brilliant!

The cab is in its final location. Just need to trim off the bottom of the doors.

Started on the integrated roll cage/body mount system for the Cab today. (Lower part of the picture, the part in the middle is temporary bracing)
