looks good. any thoughts of tying in the outer most tube (fender line) with the tube the COs are mounted to? it's tied in closer to the firewall, but then extends the entire length and then ties into the cross bar at the front hoop.

thought something inbetween would keep it from pushing inward

just wondering

Found a nice surprise while peeking in the bottom end. All Manley forged internals and ARP hardware.

It looks like a very comfortable driving position. The only thing I question is a hard bar so close to your knees.

I can see that now. Lots of room between that bar and your knees.

Buggy looks awesome. Keep the updates coming.

The only thing you may want to change is the hardware for your skids. I don't think you're going to like those exposed bolt heads. You may want to look at the acounter sunk type head.

Nice build. Not sure how I missed it. Rear link mounts turned out sweet.
