New piece to the puzzle showed up today.
The two past nights I was able to get more tube in and get the fuel cell mount installed.
Cage looks good, how many feet of DOM did it take you?
Around 120 feet. I have almost no waste which is nice. Any time a messed up on a bend or a notch, I was able to use it somewhere else.
You fit 120 ft of tubing in a samurai? That’s impressive I was really expecting to hear 80/90ft.
Looks at the seat mounts, double C-pillars, and other tubing running around the bottom rear tub inside.
This is all because no matter how much he says its just going to be something cool to cruise around, deep down he knows hes going to turn it into a crumpled beer can the first time he goes to Harlan.
I just bought a 2000 4Runner to cruise around in...so your probably right haha!
Belt tabs mounted and grab bars added. The windshield rests on the engine spreader bar by luck...totally planed for it..
Pulled the cage for final welding and paint today
Prefect day for a paint session outside.
This week so far I was able to put a few more coats of paint on the cage, set it in the tub, and mount the fuel cell. Before I bolt on the cage and fab up my frame tie ins, I want to work on the trans tunnel and pedal assemblies.
Mounted my gas pedal and started on the clutch pedal yesterday. I can’t remember if it was mentioned before, but they are Toyota pedals from the first gen pickup. Just reworking they to fit this tub.
Made a removable grab bar for the passenger side so I can still remove the dash.
