    I like the light bar, that'll draw some attention. That frame has more holes than Swiss cheese.

    Yeah, I never understood the holes in it. But it's a strong setup. The light bar on top doesn't work. There's an aftermarket electric box under the steering wheel that has a couple burned wires, and I'm assuming that's related to the light bar above. In a few months, I'm gonna get my friend to rewire it and get those lights spinning. There's no need for it...it'll just look cool. And, Hell, it's up there. I want it to work

    @ryankettering your referral to the certified 3m company paid off. Thanks a bunch for taking the time to design it.

    Bad angle on taking the pics, but it gets the point across. Now it's going to the mechanic to check out the brake system.

    IMG_0765.JPG I'm having to push the install at least another week after this week. When he took the wheels off to look at the brakes, he found that the seals on both sides of the rear end were leaking onto the back breaks.

    So we're waiting on some parts to come in. He's gonna replace the rubber brake lines while it's in the shop also.

    I'm assuming you'll have vinyl skirting installed?

    You're such a smart ass.

    But for the record, I have plywood with stucco around my home with wheels
