I like it!

Actually, having my cage come down normally, doesn't bother me too much (I'm only 5'8")....
However, having it come down inside the bulkhead does....
I mounted my seats inside the pillar to have the extra 3" of recline, but now the seat is offset several inches from the pedals.
I plan on just moving the seat over & losing the recline.

Wish my pillar went into the bed instead...

I think you need a little bit more Velcro on the bottom of that ECM.... I can still see a couple square millimeters of uncovered surface.

Ya, well, I don't think the extra couple strips will be missed, not like I'm ever going to finish it...

Your not from Oregon are you?I wanted to keep the cabtop for rain and sun block,so there will be no windshield folding down anyway.also,after wheeling the rockscout with no windshield,having it there is not a big deal.I still can't see over the hood.

The tube seem is on the right hand side of the bend.not the best place if I were to nit pick.

The computer is going in through the radio hole in the dash and mounting to the firewall.

I spent all day today chasing parts so no bendy for me today.

Nice rig, very interested in the xo-cage, looks like you got the right idea for the lines. Can't wait to see more.

Just don't seal it up too good.
It needs a little air to circulate. The driver circuits produce some heat!!!

Or put a couple of cross vent holes in it.

The other option is to just silicone the case and connectors and velcro it right to the firewall.

They don't seem like they get much air in the kick panels of the astros?

Maybe you just burn hot chips?

in that first pic it looks like you welded your spring perch to your spring probably an illusion, i'm not a fan of exos in most cases, but yours seems different and i'm interested to see how it comes out. seems like with all that hole drilling you could have figured out how to keep leg room and still have it inside but hey i've been a web wheeler for like 6 months and will continue to be until my ass is out of school and can make some money so... keep up the good work. I'm in portland so i'll keep a lookout for t-alls for sale for you i think there might be one in corneilius i'll check early next week

The only exo part is the roof. I plan on buildng a roof rack, or someway to mount gear for road trips.

I didnt want to run a lot of stuff in the cab cuz I hate being cramped and uncomfortable on road sections or day trips into the back country. I think its kinda booty when you cant use your glove box, light switch, window cranks, recline your seats, or have to climb in through the roof. I can live with a little weather coming in to the cab through the holes.

Above shot. All it needs is a big X and it will be perfect.

When the cope needs to be close to a bend I have to use a regular copeing tool(tube notcher) but when I have the space, I use the Tiajuana tube clamp. End mill makes a beautiful notch.

Some guy wandered into the shop so I had him sit in the seat to check for clearance and fit.

I think I might bring the rear up like 1/2". Its really comfy with lots of foot room. Good visability. 97 cavalier seats, very comfy.

FYI, the backside of those plates is another pate and It will be attached to the frame via tube. I knew you knew that, but for all the newbs...

seats are mounted to tubes with wrangler spring bushing. I figure they will absorb some vibes and still gives me the option of pulling the seats to get to the tranny tunnel. Also, I can pull the seats at the end of the day and set them near the camp fire or where ever. No need to bring camp chairs now

Make sure that both plates aren't the same size, round the edges and corners...

Helps to eliminate the can opener effect.

Do I look like that big of a newb?

The plates on the bottom are bigger on at least 3 of the 4 sides.the corners are square but I think I'll be ok.I welded the 14 gauge floor right on top of the original floor.the front most plates are directly above the body rib that the body mount attaches to.

Looks great!! It looks like you are taking your time and doing a fine job I like the tube work, but I have to know how the hood opens? Nice choice on the leafs you'll love them

Notice the size of the holes in the hood & the angle of the tube.

I think the hood should open just fine...

Personally, on major work, I like attaching my hood to the windshield so it is totally out of the way (for hoists & such).


BB- I figured you knew that, just posting for the few newbs who actually do search...
