super clean very nice... seems Carolina Truggies has treated you right! I like the inner cage, cant wait to see the exo cage on there. I would love to do this as my biggest fear is always rolling and not having a rig left to wheel haha... but I love that its still a DD and I can haul people and stuff... so cage is on hold for a while.

Love to see some more pics of your rig though, I love how it looks so far! keep it up

Thanks man I appreciate it. I personally don't like driving people around so a little over year after I bought it the back seats were taken out and the cage was coming lol. I'll definitely post some pics once the exo is started and it is tied to the inner.....thanks for the good words!

Cage looks nice, but you probably want to throw some padding on the bars around those seats before you wind up with a cracked melon.

Fenders are trimmed and coated with Duplicolor bedliner in a can. It came out great but I was doing it to see how much I liked it before I did a stronger material. Probably Herculiner or something

How do you like those seats ? they look nice... but how is the comfort over long periods ? I have contemplated looking at replacements for my stockers, but its more of just a thought than a reality.

I love the seats, they are extremely comfortable! On their website it's stated that they are made with high impact and memory foam to remain comfortable after several hours in race conditions...and I don't really race so they are more then enough for my DD you could say the seats are an 'overkill' but I figured they will be the only seats i'll ever have and I got a great deal on them.

The ONLY thing that is a little troublesome is getting in and out, it has high side support so you kind of have to pick yourself up to get in and out, I don't mind it but some people do.
