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
