    Just finished installing the exo-cage on it getting ready for the Toyota Jamborie at the Hammers in a couple weeks. Few pics:

    This is a pic of the halo since you can't see it in any other pics:

    Also got the rear axle centered and aligned. Tomorrow morning I need to put new front brake lines on it since I pinched the old ones shut when they were not zip tied out of the way. Then I just need to pick up the steel for the full udner frame skid and thats about it...

    Yeah, I ordered some tube clamps to make some removable door bars but they are on back order so whenever they come I'll just wire wheel a bare spot and weld the stuff in.
