I think I like the lightbar. It flows well with the cage. It seems like it needs something on the front but I'm not sure yet. I'd leave it for now.

The brow looks really nice.

I can't believe you could MIG those nuts. I have trouble with 3mm nuts. I am thoroughly impressed.

Looking great Andy.

Ok, decided to hack the lightbar off. It just wasn't doing it for me..

I found this led dome light at a local Autozone, ended up cutting it up and making a horizontal LED light bar like what is becoming more popular on 1:1 rigs. I am much happier with this. After the nats I am going to have a delrin housing milled up, hopefully the styrene one works for now...

I did have to remake the brow for the third time though








I made progress on the interior as well, got the floor pan and seats in, and made the template for the dash.





I have a week left, Crunch time baby!

I agree, the other brow by itself, I liked better.

I am really happy with the light bar though.




Paint is drying on the cage as we speak
