Re: wanna see me topless?

You gonna tie something in to keep the body solid? It was designed with the thought that no weirdos in the Army would cut the top off.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img] Gonna work up some sort of canvas top or something?

Looks good anyways. Amazing how far it's come. Got the shafts done yet?

Re: wanna see me topless?

Going to have a 3 loop roll cage tied in to the frame to add the extra support. The boddy already sage in the middle so this is a must. No shafts yet. I am hoping on having the Burb tank and flatbed done at the end of the month early december and a rear shaft done. Then comes a the new steering column. Then I have to work on the cage. It will eventually get on the road again. Waiting to see if the "brass" has anything to say about it having no roof, seeing as how the liked it with no doors so much.

I didn't need to see this![img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Now you have me thinking about hacking the top off mine. Looks good! Would look even better w/tube doors.

Re: wanna see me topless?

I have thought of notching them or tube doors, but I am going to drive it a bit like this first to see what it is like. And don't be afraid, just pull out the sawall and have at it. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: wanna see me topless?

The front doors would work if you got some doors off of a 73-75 K5, but dunno about the rear.[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Rezzydoors? (Not shipped by UPS of course).

Re: wanna see me topless?

don't know if you want to be able to keep it sealed up, but if not i would cut the frame around the windows off the doors, just leave the bottom part. for some reason i always liked doors like that, it might be becaouse i never hit myself in the head when i open them [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

EDIT: errrr.. you already did NEVER MIND.

Re: wanna see me topless?

was thinking about doing that to my little s15 after it dies. looks cool. the hardest thing to me was making that decision as of right now is deciding to do that first cut. after the first cut its go all the way and not stop with a hack mark in it.
