Time to start putting the back end together. As I said before, couldn't find a deal on a rear tub section, so I'm going to make my own panels to go in. I plan on covering most of the work with corner armor and the belt rails for the soft top

As you can see here, I've got the inner sections done. The rear shock towers come into passenger compartment a little. If you look under the floor section, there is a 4" gap down to the rear section of frame. I will raise that section of frame since a fuel cell will go in behind the rear seat.

For someone who hates sheet metal work, I'm pretty proud of making this side panel. I clamped the flat sheet between two pieces of angle and beat it with a rubber mallet. Where I needed to make a really sharp bend, I scored it with a cut off wheel on a 4.5" grinder, then went back an welded up the score and ground it flush. Should have spent the money on another tub. Lol

It official, grinding and welding on Line-X will take years off of your life. This stuff sucks.

Still have a lot to do before I can weld the back, but I wanted to see what it would look like.

Keep it up I like where its going. Frame off custom is the only way to get what you want sometimes.

A set of scrambler corner armor blanks would let you cover all that up and locate your wheel well exactly where you want it.

Brown Santa came today. 17gal RCI fuel cell. Should fit nicely between the rear shock towers. That weight will help keep the rear tires planted w/o being too far back
