Kids love wheel'n

Awsome,awsome,awsome
Probably the best build I've seen, really like that tailgate panel. All these guys talking about having time with kids around... take them with you, my 3-year old loves going to the shop and even helps... well helps might be a stretch, but he has fun anyway. I can see by the pics of your little ones in the back seat that they're as read for you to finish as we all are, so ..... Step-on-it. Keep up the PRIMO work!!!

Yea time is hard to come by for sure with kidlets. I used to obsess on this thing and put it way higher on the priority list then other things that were probably more important. It was so consuming that I didn't take the time to enjoy the process of building it. Lately I have just been working on it when time permits and despite the slow pace, I enjoy working on it way more. No pressure to hurry up and finish and more time to enjoy the ride.
Pmaddy, how are things out in the shop on this, any updates for us?? Would love to see you get out on the trails with the kids this summer and enjoy this thing. Nice to see that you're taking your time and doing it right and enjoying it :smokin:

Few updates:
- Powdercoated winch/shock mounts. Color is Cardinal Brand Steel Grey Pearlecent. After powdering this piece I think I have decided I am going to paint the cage. This color wasn't exactly what I had in mind and it's not easy to tell from those little paint chips they give you. I think by painting the cage I have more options and it will be easy to patch up if I want to change some things around. Body is going to be satin/flat black so should be cool.
- Front end is pretty much ready to go.

- Finished welding and smoothing the tailgate seems where I had to slice to bend it.
- Body Parts Sandblasted and ready for primer and paint.
- Planning on starting on painting the cage a lighter more metalic grey and body (Satin/Flat Black) over the next several weeks.

What kind of signal lights do you have in the front grill? Are those LEDS?
