In that last picture it looks like an ear to the right of the hole. Not yours I hope

No, it's the end of a small C clamp, clamped thru a hole in the firewall.

Looks good!

I've decided that you can come finish mine for me. I'm sick of sheet metal work already!

Your work is a marvel, Rene. I am so glad you chose to go to this extent and post it up for all of us to watch.

Not much has been going on lately as much of the things I need to do are painting related and the weather isn’t cooperating. It changed from summer to a cold fall really fast it seems so I’ve been doing some odds and ends stuff. One of the things is to fab my hi-lift holder while I had my spare tire carrier in place. Normally I’d lay it in the back or bungee it to the bumper when I took it along, but since I have a new spare carrier on the back I can use that to hold it and I can lock it fast too.
I just used what I had on hand to create it so I wouldn’t have any money into it. The pieces:
4955
Mocked up for fit:
4948

Mounted to the carrier:
4969

The top mount in place. I had to drill two more holes along side those that kept it centered. On final fitment the first two didn’t allow the lock stub to fit thru the jack holes like it did earlier and I didn’t want to make it any smaller due to the lock hole’s integrity so I had to shift the plate over. No biggy.
4972

Then I added some cushions on both sides made from some old poly shock bushings and added a s.s washer and a MasterLock.
4961
4965

And the bottom plate sets in place and can’t slip or bounce out. I’ll cut a piece of rubber to fit across the back between the u-bolt ends and the plate to keep it from vibrating or rattling. I'm still debating on a theft deterrent to obscure those nuts being easily removed. Any idea's? I’ll paint it all up with POR and put a texture coat on top so it blends in nicely. And it’s still removable if needed.
4963
4966

Will it clear if you cut the excess threads off? I'd say tack the nuts.

Do you mean cut them down to be flush with the top of the nut, then tack it? Yeah that way I can just grind some off the end if I want to remove it. Might just do that, thanks.

No actually I was thinking maybe something along the lines of two nylok nuts and then two wing nuts over those with a hole in one wing to wire them together. But with the wing nuts bulk, I might have interference setting the base plate in.

It’s been a while since I posted anything. Things have been slow with hunting season and the holiday’s, plus the weather hasn’t been very cooperative with painting or sanding. So I’ve been just taking care of little things to fill the time.
There are some voids in the body support’s design that tend to let the outdoor’s in for a rust party, and even though I caulked or painted these best I could theres two places I still wanted to plug up. One in the transverse support and one in the inboard support. I was originally thinking of using a thick coolly cup for some closed cell foam material, but then I realized the foam mats I use to lay on the concrete for knee or back padding would work perfect. It’s ” foam from one of those “fatigue” mats that I cut in half to lay on. I cut them oversized so they would “squeeze” in place and stay.
5047
5048
5051

I also got a bit more etching and painting done to the tub. We got a couple short warm spells into the high 50’s so I took advantage. Painted the other side of the tubs exterior and the rest of the rear. Now the whole exterior of the tub is painted with POR except for the cowling.
5031

On the inside I took advantage of gravity while the tub was on each side and painted some vertical seams that the thin paint could seep into. Once the tub is sitting on the frame I can then paint the rest of the inside.

It was rather nice! I even tried riding with the window down and my arm hanging out until I got yelled at by the wife! For someone who used to ride motorcycles all the time, she sure is worried about the wind messing up her hair!
