We set the tub back on the frame this afternoon. The heat is amazing, and the gnats are SO bad... that you can smell every dog's butt in the county! But the LIGHT... it's shining so BRIGHT!! It feels good to mock up the tub. It also feels good to gain some floor space, albeit temporary!
Quick discovery, as Clay and I crawled around admiring our work... is that the upper left shock mount hits the stringer on that side. The right side clears by just a tad. We may add a 1/2" of rubber to each tub mount to clear everything. I like that idea better than grinding away some of the new glass and wood.
You can see the old "notches" cut out on the rear of the tub for the frame horns. I have a Sharpie mark showing where the tub SHOULD be. It sure was WAY OFF!
Clay is waffling about a tailgate or a cargo net. He's thinking about making the back solid again, but he thinks a cargo net will be cool. PO really hacked it up, but he did what he wanted to do.
What do Ya'll think? Need some answers, ideas...
Go Fish! <*////><
But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
