    Looks sweet! Totaly diggin it.

    If I understand correctly (meaning, I'm not positive) Chromoly should be TIG welded, something about the grain or something like that.

    This is so freaky! I was dreaming about this while driving home from Disney Oklahoma on Sunday. I thought about bobbing the rear of my K5. I wanted to do exactly the same and have the rear quarters be trimmed straight back from the wheelwell opening. Up front, I thought about cutting all but the rear section of the front fenders out, and bending some round tubing in the shape of the old wheel well, but try to have the front of the truck much more narrow. I would also cut down the '91 grille and narrow it and make tabs coming from the front rollcage/exoskeleton. I would remove the radiator support all together along with inner fenders. I saw where RockbuggyK5 did well in a very tight spot at Disney because of his "lack of body". I dont want to hack mine to pieces, but do want to trim it up a little. Can you take pictures after you fab up some sheetmetal near the wheelwell openings. Just curious how you plan to finish it up. You could mount some recessed lights into the bumper for taillights.

    This will probably not happen real soon, but it is a thought in my mind as well.

    i hear ya mudzer. its hard to put into words what i am doing, but pics will be available soon enuff.
    the front fenders have the same wheel arch as the rear, opening up to the front eliminating the turn signal marker. im using 22 gauge aluminum to complete the front and rear wheel houses, riveted and covered in herculiner. i will be recessing the taillites in part of the new cage.
