body positioned last night.

mounting today taking a little more time than i had though. 

2 mounts missing from frame, see where they were cut and ground off, and two other mounts i had to move for the fiberglass reinforcement.

8 mounts done, 2 mounts to weld on, and throw the front clip on should look like a jeep!

I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

body mount kit pretty close just had to large spacers for 2 spots and make holes in 4 frame mouts larger, and new longer bolts of course. 

windsheild frame is fiberglass too.  javent decided if it will get painted. the grey it is actually is in good shape.

FYI - 'glass windshield frames really flex in the wind. It's pretty scary. Cage bracket highly recommended.

This model for about $180 including tax. Would need some time though. We get factory loads about once a month
