    My old man owned his on glass company for years. That wouldnt be to easy to cut but can be done. Most glass places would want to do a straight cut all the way acrossed much easier has to be cut needs to be etched on both sides the tapped to brake and achool put on and lite to get the plastic to let go

    No pics - will post tomorrow

    Glass has been successfully cut and hopefully successfully fit tomorrow. The guy only charged me 170 instead of the quoted 300. Yay me!

    My B&B Off Road Engineering custom fuel tank showed up yesterday evening. It’s beautiful and perfect.
    THANK YOU TALON!

    I’ve figured out my radiator mount - got the “shelf” part started and plan on getting the uprights done tomorrow too.

    Costa Mesa Auto Glass does most of the custom glass for all the prerunners and hot rods in SoCal. $300 for the windshield, cutting, custom seal, and installation and it's on him if he breaks it. I found him through Jerry Penhall.

    K are you going to use a seal to hold it in? You can get it from CM Auto Glass. Make the bottom frame pretty ridged by either using thicker aluminum or being well mounted (I know the roof already is). Bejay cracked his GayZR windshield on his last outing because his frame flexed too much. He now wants to make a mold off of mine.

    Been a great day.

    Windshield fits perfectly. I'll be making a lower frame that will tie into the two top main bars. The roof is extremely stiff and mounted solidly. I think it's gonna be good.







    Got the body mounts today - must say I'm impressed. Just the two of them hold the hood on impressively well. I'll use six when all is said and done - nothing's moving anywhere.



    The fuel tank fits a bit too perfectly - Dumb ass me didn't take into account the amount of angle in the sides of the chassis and while I have an inch at the bottom on each side of the tank, I have "no inch" anywhere at the top. I had to do a little BFH work and notch the tube just a tad to make it a slip fit.







    Radiator mount is coming along nicely.







    Just for grins - another side shot.

    Bracket's coming along - still has stuff to be added...

    I got the dies from, I believe, rowycoracing a few years back - this is actually the first time I've used them.

    I have a full external pump with regulator that I snagged off an MBN member a couple of years back. The fuel trap is pretty cool the way TALON set it up. Has an AN fitting that'll feed the pump. Still not sure how or if I'm going to try to incorporate the OEM fuel gauge. It'll read full until the tank gets down to about 1/4 then it'll start letting me know - so that will take some getting used to if I go that route. The Briggs cars were the same way.

    Had planned on getting more done today but the weather's allowing for a RZR ride up to Crown King - haven't been there in a while and we feel like a killer burger for lunch.

    Lower radiator mount is almost done - still have to add two ears on the ends for a tie down point - this will make more sense when you see it.

    Mount in place on the front clip. It bolts in:





    Mounts in the tubes:



    I'm finding it's faster to custom cut tabs and then squish them in the press to the correct diameter than trying to use off the shelf stuff. Makes for a really nice fitting piece. So they sit flush I recess the back side so the head of the insert has a place to go:



    Radiator in place:





    Hopefully I'll get the top brackets and hold downs done this weekend.

    I get this done and it's time to install the fuel tank and start plumbing.
