I'm cutting off the other fender this weekend, smoothing out the old welds and marks and sanding the armor smooth. For now I'm going to paint it all black until I get the other fender roll bent, and a mounting configuration sorted out. I like the smooth side look so it can stay like that a while. I think I'll be adding some role cage parts in this weekend also and working on getting the front weld in "sport cage" figured out. Lots of fab work this weekend. I've got 4-5 hours Sunday to knock stuff out.

New stainless front brake lines, new TRE, and most of the other back fender cut off. No progress on rear tire carrier or new rear fenders. I have the tubing notcher borrowed a while so I've still got time.

Well I got my radiator hoop braced up with some pipe, and installed my old speaker bar that was in far better shape and sounds better.

I found that have another unit bearing out and after my latest death wobble doom attack my steering box now has a ton of slop in it and needs rebuilt. Some days it's a 1 step forward 2 back kind of thing. I didn't discover those things until the end if the work day so they have to wait.
