What came to mind was something under the bottom on the back half and on top of the windshield. Just lower the top for the windows.

You still looking to weld some aluminum?

been busy doing tedious shit

Ive tacked tacked tacked the main portion of the rear together




started woringon the firewall/tunnel cover


drivers side


pass side


Welded the rear truss, and thought about the tranny/tcase mounts. I never really liked the tcase mounts, so I was thinking about making a tray style mount from the klune
mount to the 205 pto cover

'mocked' 205 mount


D you think I need to make a new PTO cover out of 1/4 or 3/8, or can I just weld a plate on the stock cover??

I cut a new PTO cover out of 1/4" for my 203/205 combo. No issues so far. Glad I went that route

thanks. I was just being lazy.

did you use that mounting foot also, just forward of that?

I successfully used the klune mounting foot and a torque arm form the 205 in the last build, but wanted to free up access to the klune drain plugs and front driveshaft bolts, so I am experimenting with different designs. I am just concerned with not supporting the klune enough.

Why are you looking at 2" vs. 1.5" or 1.75"...?

You like the looks of a fat tube?

I did 1.75 on my bronco and always felt it looked a little small, and yes I sorta like the look of the fatter tube.

lots of thinking/planning/drinking this 4 day off.

Did pick one project to complete. I think I needed to see something finished, so I chose making the new twin stick mount.





edit:

so, and granted I am a few beers deep, I have been thinking. The rear fenders were gonna be a pain, and likely smooshed. The cage leaves little head room as planned inside the top, and I really have been hankering to pinch the back end, but didnt want to lose valuable rear space. SOOOOOO,


Im thinking of skinning the tub with some 10 gauge. Using the stock rear fenders from the door back, say 12", and pinching those to meet the flat faced tub. Then using the stock end caps (just trimmed to fit the flat "tub" 10 gauge. I could then use an in/exo (yeah I am back to that) to save had room, protect the fenders, and use the body as a pivot point. It would basically only loook like an exo above the fenders (top area). Wish I could MS paint worth a shit, it would prolly make a lot more sense.

Sorry, Its my sunday and the family is all asleep (and sick)

1: tach
2: fuel
3: voltage
4: water temp
5: tranny temp
6: exhaust temp (diesel)
7: speedo
8: oil pressure
9: I'm running out of ideas
10 clock

Looks good.

That is a lot of sheet metal work for sure.

small progress, despite the time spent on it. Lots of measuring and clearance checks. The smaller template will be switches, and the heater switch will go below that. Waiting on some parts and pieces prior to completing things.

have you planned out where your seats are going to be with that big coffin box that "looks" like it is pretty high and way into the drivers floor?

Could be deceiving...but looks like not much room?

So...after "thumbing" through this thread for the last hour or so, maybe I missed it. But why did you not just throw it on the old bronco frame? Could have added the length there and probably had less to do.
