So all that's left are the little things that are time killers. I worked on the exhaust last night for a few hours, I should have some pictures by the end of the weekend.

Got some cage materials today, also looks like a guy I work with is going to show me how to Tig the cage when I get it all tacked together.

Cool man, make sure you fit everything really tight and clean all the tube ends well before tacking them together, it will make it easier when TIG'ing. I only TIG'd the top half of my cage and MIG'd the rest. It was taking a very long time to TIG it all lol.

Probably just some random pictures, I will make sure there is a good complete picture in there somewhere.

He volunteered, he just purchased the tig add on for his Snap-On welding machine.

I think that's what I will do, mig all the lower stuff and seat mounts, then Tig the upper portion.

Huge development!

I worked on the Jeep all day, just finishing little things. I hooked up the battery and messed with the fuel pump wires. Although I did not get the fuel pump to start up, I did get all the lights working. I have turn signals, stop lights, running lights, heater blower, dash lights, and the BEST part the Jeep turned over with key.

Since I do not even know if it runs or not, I think it's Huge.

Thanks guys, I think it should only be a couple more weeks before the first drive. Then a few more till its ready for daily driving and crawling some local Malls. Going to be a big push to finish in time for some Late Summer and Fall Jeep events. I still want to make it up to the Badlands to hang out with the Indyorv crew before it gets to cold.
