I just mentioned the itmes I wanted and left the rest up to them. I really dig how it's turning out. The seats are being replaced with Beards.

It isn't even close to done. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> there will be door x's, seats mounted into the cage, x behind the seats, dash bar with grab bar, cross bar in the top and a 5 bar aluminum roof panels. Trust me it'll be done right, can you say Fat City? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Tell those fawkers to stay the hell out of the bar, and it'll get done a lot faster! 4 hour liquid lunches tend to cut down on the amount of work getting done! <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

The Bronco is getting wrapped up right now and as soon as that goes to powdercoat it's all me. The problem also is that BEard didn't have the seats that I wanted so there was another 2 week delay. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0">

Consider a pair of spread, bent down top stringers.
This design has several advantages ...
More head room and tubing further away from above the head.
The spread design triangulates the top square frame adding strength.
The peaks in the middle of the stringers add strenght to the top on full roll over.
Plus the peaks help a bikini or full soft top tension much better ... and again adding to head space.
Just food for thought ...

There will be drops/supports right where the stock roll cage bolted in. The hold up right now is the seats are being made. <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> These are photos of the very beginning of this project. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

It's not tubing it's PVC that has been painted to look like tubing. Much cheaper <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Hey Fawker that damn thing is eatin into my scout time. No seriously that damn bronco is looking real sweet. I can't wait till he gets it done. I told him it was cool to set me aside until your cruiser is done. Mine will be done by the middle of October. Just in time for Fright Night. Looks great.
