I had taken pictures of the process using a camera instead of my iphone downloading them to my computer and deleted them from the camera. I was going to post this but a couple of days later the hard drive in my computer went bad and I lost them.
Bummer... talk about a series of unfortunate events. Still, it looks awesome. I am definitely adding that to the "Mods I Want Someday" file.

Well today I cut some tubes and plates, made a bracket and started on my roll cage. Got it all in with just a bead on each. Going to go back and fully weld it all tomorrow. Maybe even add a few new bars! Here's some pics!
Awesome work. Is the attachment completely flat or is there a slight bend, I can't tell by pics? Great design, something I need to do
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Started stripping the front end in preparation of new suspension, ball joints, steering and to get the brakes working.
The good news is the bearings look new and grease fresh BUT the op didnt replace any seals so ill throw in a set. Front calipers have seen better days and only one side actually worked (the other was full of milky looking sludge and was seized) Both slides were gummed up and hardly moved which wouldn't have helped.
The reason i decided to install new ball joints was the old ones were REALLY stiff. IM not sure what the pre-load is supposed to be but these needed both hands and full force to turn. Its no wonder the power steering goans. Of course having no bushes in the springs, sway bars and no shocks made the front end feel loose as hell.
