Well the frame and suspension are built for the most part. I need to weld and primer them. The next tasks will be to narrow the rear end and weld the 14 bolt outer brakes onto the 9 in rear-end and then mount the motor and trans. It all sounds so simple when typed.

The bags will be mounted right above the rearend. I would have put the backs on the arms but it would have taken away any possible space for the exhaust.

Haha, it is amazing the animals and smells that can find their way into a car when it has been sitting around. I had a mouse find its way into my commuter one time and die. I had to tear the dash out to get rid of the smell. It was a rough few days to work!

The rear end is built and the frame is finally a roller. I Should be pulling the turbo diesel out tomorrow. Then I can get the drive train installed. I also couldn't resist setting a fender on to get an idea how she will look.
