got a little done, had a hell of a time with the bumpstops, had to get a cylinder hone to bore the cans out after they shrunk...again, shock mounts were a pain, limit strap mounts/swaybar mounts, tons of little details, still got a bunch of tuning/cycling to do for limit straps and front lower bumpstops:

Thanks guys, almost cut this thing into a million pieces out of frustration, too many three handed jobs and usually only my one free hand, what a major PITFA, most of my time was spent creatively stacking blocks and shims so I could test fit the seat placement in the horiz/vertical, and adjust the rake front to back, bending tubes of different sizes and configurations trying to get the seat in a decent place with the transfer case hump impeding massively into the driver side seat area, $75 wasted tubing, multiple burns and abrasions, a million cuss words and a few childish temper tantrums later got half of a seat in, the rest of the seat mounts will be a piece of cake now, my project and I are not speaking for a few days though, taking a break before I burn out completely.

thanks guys, got this little cluster of tube done, was a frustrating task but it is now ready to be finish welded/gusseted/plated and then onto patching the floor and then doing a tube structure for dash/gauges/shifters. Had to take a break from it for a while, getting a little burned out, and had some things going on for mothers day and my wife and I went on a little trip for our anniversary. Cheers

after a lot of thinking I decided to shine going to C.O.R.R race and locked myself in the shop, got one half of a shock mount almost done:shaking:, no helpers so everything took twice as long, not to mention a whole bunch of head scratching and ideas that didn't pan out, I'm pretty happy with how they are turning out, gotta go make sure I am still married

looks great, are you planning on putting another support on the top of the mount to make it a double sheer as opposed to single sheer?

Thanks a bunch, definitely double shear, I bent up a piece of 1.25"x.120 dom in a 180*and will add two pieces for the outer mount and then plate in the whole shebang, may do some trick dimple die plating but we'll see.
