We got a lot done this weekend! The main cage is built and fully welded. We have a few additional tubes to weld up for utility purposes, and we are waiting until the tub is weighted down and bolted into place to do the frame tie-ins.
It was a great weekend of hanging out, cutting, welding, fitting, and planning. Next visit we plan to fit the two gas tanks, flip the rear springs around to see if we can center them in the openings, and get started on laying out the dash.

The Tub & Body Panels Made it Home It has been a long time coming, but the tub and most of the panels are home! I'm still waiting on the tailgate and doors to be completed, and I might do late-style doors instead of my early-style ones. This is because the vent windows won't be usable with the cage and the window frames are pretty bad. We'll see. I had to bolt something on, so I installed the fuel filler and cap. LOTS more to come!
Progress Continues Both bedsides are replaced and the rear sill is next. I also picked up a small batch of powder coated parts and got to visit with "Vulcan" the Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff). He looks and barks like a fierce beast, but he is a total sweetheart. Next up for the 40? Refitting the springs on the chassis, the rear sill and sill cover, LOTS of unneeded hole patching in the floor pans, and patching the passenger side outer sill.
