Been a few days since I updated anything. Got most of my steel on Tuesday, I will have to go back and get a sheet of 3/16 but I got enough to get really going. Took yesterday off from the project and spent this morning building the underside structure to make the tub more rigid and support the floor. I have not welded it to the body yet as I will also use it as the template for the actual floor. If everything goes well over the next few days, I can start building the frame this weekend.

Yeah, the tunnel is way taller than it needs to be but, it will be at the perfect height for an armrest. The hoops are 1/8Ēx1Ē miles steel and itís getting covered by 16ga. Went a bit thicker on this one because if a u-joint fails, I donít want the driveshaft to come busting through like the kool-aid man.
