    Good walk around video. Engine sounds good!

    Have you tried flexing it out?

    Any plans for half doors and a full cage?

    Is that the original front clip?

    Thanks guys..

    I cant wait to actually drive it.

    No, I haven't tried actually flexing it yet.. I am waiting to get my steering straightened out, then I will do it.

    I will put a cage in it, probably not a "full cage" but I have given great thought to that already and there will be minimalist cage that runs through the top part of the dash down to the frame, and back to protect the rear occupants, but not over the cargo area. Probably similar to a stock jeep cage, but of course built out of stronger material.

    The doors are still up in the air. I think I am going to use the stock doors, but attempt to figure out a hinge system that will allow them to be removable. This will be driven in the winter, and the doors seal against the hard top. I loved driving my jeep with no doors at all, and I love the open air feeling it gives.

    Yes that is the original front clip, I banged out all the dents with a hammer and dolley, body filled it, and of course rolled the wheel wells. I plan to create a small inner fender that gives rigidity to the fender. I am also going to make a fuller inner fender that is removable. maybe something out of a plastic type material that will keep the mud out of the engine bay when off road, but can be taken out when driving around on nice days to show the car sitting beside me at the stop light the work under the hood.

    I also plan a full LED rock light system / mobile lighthouse..

    Still have loose ends. I've got it insured, but still need a few things for the safety.
