    And got the upper frame rails squared up and ready to tack. I would suggest to anyone building one of these to work on the offset notches for the rear roll bars before drilling all the other holes and welding in tap plates.

    It's fun when you make two right hand parts. You know, you feel that sense of accomplishment and then realize you wasted steel and half of your time? It always happens when I get in a hurry.

    Hello everyone. Itís been a while. Like 7 years since I started this build. Not long after my last update I went through a divorce. It was amicable. So I put all my tools and parts in storage. In that time I bought a small farm built a small shop(16x24) on it then lived in the shop for 3 years while I built my house.
    Well the house is done and Iíve reclaimed my shop and started on this build again.

    The shop is kinda small but it’s fully insulated and super easy to heat and cool which is something of a luxury to me. I’ve never had a heated shop. And I plan on adding into it in the summer.
