Thanks a bunch guys, appreciate the kind words, way more work than I ever thought but it is farther along than it ever has been, whatever that means
got my dimple die/flared hole dies and did some plate work and some flange work for the removable engine cage, still have two more to make along the side bars to make it nice and squared up.

Thanks much, almost got the light rack done, just waiting on some rod ends and inserts to do the supports to the b-pillar of the cage on the roof to make it tiltable.

almost got the tilt column done, just waiting on a piece of 4130 .75" round bar stock to finish up the column itself, and still need to gusset in the mounting area with some more tube and some trick dimple die 4130 plates

dayum, ive got 2 of those rallye 4ks on my bumper and they melt faces...4 must be quite a light show

good show on the fabrication and tube work, a totally stout build no doubt about it

Thanks Heavy, they should be even brighter when I get the HID conversions hooked up

got a bit more reinforcement done, threw my back out this monday so things are going really slow, forgot to mention, I didn't make the tilt column part of the assembly, that I got from Poly Performance, a really nice piece!

Thanks much! It has a 4wd AW4 with a np231 so we can remove the front driveshaft and replace the d30 with the 2wd beam and run 2wd, the tougher courses such as the Baja 1000 will definitely need 4wd so we have a D30 for those races. I'll have more updates soon
