The boogered seat mounts are only boogered on one side (done my me) the other side is welded by a good welder and they are not going anywhere.





Today Dave worked on it for me because I had work and I had to study for finals so I just stopped over to get my camera to take pics. He made the x in the main hoop, made the spreader bar and the roof bar. The truck is driving out of his garage Wednesday so he can get his race truck in the garage. All we have left is door bars, mount the steering wheel and some small finish welding.

PICS

I wish I had spent the extra 200 bucks to get prp's because I am 6'4'' and these are too small with 4 pts. PRPs can be built an extra 4in tall
