So today i decided to take a break from wiring up the car plus im still waiting on a painless switch box ,so here we go just dropped the rear crossmember so i can remove the rear end and install some new bushings and a new diff cover. I figured while im down here i might as well drop out the stock tank to since im running a fuel cell thats just extra weight. The bushing in the crossmember came out...

So heres a few pictures of the cage so far, still got to add a few gussets in some spots and finish mounting the seat, dont mind all the wires they're all comming out. The floor in the trunk area was cut out so the parachute bars could be mounted in between the frame rails.

Well i guess so much for u turns ,this steering wheel is so small its crazy. I wanted a smaller wheel cause being 6'3 my knees are kinda of close to the stock wheel plus it makes it easier to get in and out of now that i got a roll cage in the way.

I modified the fuel rail today cause i didnt like the way the -10 fit into the rail,it seemed like the fitting had a slight taper on it so it would only thread in only 3/4s of the way and plus the rail didnt have a groove for a o-ring so screw it just tig welded both sides.Heres a shot of the modified water pipe just a -16 on for the radiator.
