After tonight everything is done enough, most likely never done, but done to the point I'm waiting on the computer, and the coilovers, which should be here. Hoping coilovers show up before the weekend so I can dial all the bs with then in. Should see computer Monday or so, then spend a day at elite helping Jason weld more tubing in the front and this bad boy is gonna tear some **** up.

Random question, where did you mount your speakers? I'm debating the same thing for this summer when I remove my doors for tube doors.

I bought a cheap box a Walmart figuring it would fit under the dash but no luck so they will be in the wire hiding panels in the front of my center console.

Driver interior done. Going to have Jason do the other side so it's clean and hinged or easily removable to get at wiring.

Floor holes filled. And for the guys writing about how I made the 4 link. Needs some grinding to be pretty but here they are.

The mounts are plate steel welded to the rustys mounts, then I welded the entire works to the frame and the floor, then tied then to the front mounts which I also welded to the frame.
