my only thoughts:
4 more pieces of tube and making the stinger more pronounced so you know its gonna serve its purpose if its ever used
Never notice your drawing till now, I like the back 4 bars. He's going to have to curve them for headroom but I'm going to have him put them in when he does shock reinforcement.

He just said they are very shorthanded. I've been trying to order for a week. Email was the only way to get them to call me.

Finished painting the cage. Now tape off the cage, spray black, then engine swap time.

Are you going to add anything in front of the engine to keep out sticks and such?

The fenders attach in the front to the main tubes, I plan on building a metal grill looking piece to tie the front together. More then that no. Lights will be mounted between 2 lower tubes. Really taking out the belt is really the only problem I could have in the front.

Nothing to bruiser today, but the wife's mall crawler started on the first try. Bled the coolant system, looks like I have a cooling fan issue to sort out and I can drive it home. Sweeeet.
