Finally had some time to devote the 40 and we got the spring over 60% completed, still need to cut and turn and fully weld the front perches and mounts. We also wrapped up the tub work, steering column mount, and are in the final stretch of finishing the dash. We lost power during the big rain storm and called it a day.

We are pushing hard to wrap up the tub so I can get it to paint, so the plan is to finish the dash and seat mounts in a couple weeks, then drag the tub home so I can get started on final body and paint work.

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.
