    It started to snow so some of the pics didnt turn out well.

    I still have to cut out the other three fenders and wire up the fans and mount the hood pins.

    Its off to the 4x4 shop for a full cage and front and rear bumpers and side armor. Getting some racing seats too. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Kinda hard to see how the rear went but it was way easier than the front. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Well, the plan is too run a Bikini Top over the roll cage. I didnt cut the doors so I still have the window frame. I'm thinking of making just some soft panels that will snap onto the cage sealing it up for the bad weather.

    And I do need a camera. Mine sucks. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    I have the old wheelwells still. I havnt decided if I'm going to cut them and put them back in or just build some new ones. I do plan on moving the rear axle back some so I might just wait on those untill I have it all sorted out.

    That "bucket" seat decided to slid backwards on me when I loaded it onto the trailor and I about fell off the back. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I like what you did alot. I want to cut the top off my 85. Juat not sure how far back from the windshield to cut. Also the wife said I can cut it off only if I can put a full soft top on it for the winter. Its my DD also is why and for my lil boy for when we do winter runs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I run with no wheel wells and my motor is always clean, I don't get friendly with the mud though 'well some times if I want a mud bath"

    I plan to make a soft top I just also like the conver't feel though, plus I have only been cought in rain twice /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif "ARIZONA"

    Do you still plan on full doors? I don't run them and love the visability, I just wear pants and some gloves or a beenie if I need it, I also leave at 3:30 am /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    Just wondering is yours a Daily driver? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I know up here in the northeast no way I'd run without wheel wells of some kind. I can't believe the white knight doesn't have them.

    I've got the doors setup for easy takoff. I'll leave them that way for the bad weather.

    I drive mine around in the summer quite a bit. Not sure how its going to work out now with the tires so exposed. thats a no no around here. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I'm looking forward to the cage and bumpers. Should make it look OK.

    i like it, except the chopped 2nd gen top, and thats just a personal preferance. If i was gonna chop my rigs top, I'd just remove the entire body and go all tube... but thats just me. kick A$$ job narrowing the front/rear, I totally dig it. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Now, when is the ck5 how-to tech article coming? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I swear I'll get a better camera when I get the cage and bumpers in.

    I dont know about a writeup. There is so much custom fitting and cutting depending on everything that I think a "measure this much and cut here" type of thing would not work out on different vehicles. Its a more of a figure it out as you go type of thing. I can put up a load of good pics of the finer points when I can and measurements and what I would do different type of thing.
