Obviously I have a lot more to do. Finish the drivers side, cap it, paint, then repeat for the other side....

Those rockers are looking real proper like...they should function well!

Just curious, have you put enough miles on the new steering to provide a full review? How is it on the road?

A little here and there, BUT if I would re-adjust my drag link I could make it mint!

Thanks man! I like them so far but welding to the sheetmetal sucks soooooo bad. The top part was easy. Welding the 2x6 to what is left of the pinch seam SUCKS.

Planning on the 11th for Crozet. Have a few more things I'd like to get to before then. Front bumper and seats.
