Since I don't have a metal brake I had to get creative to get the bends I wanted.

WOW! I just skimmed through all 52 pages so far. Based on the first sight of the rig I was thinking "wtf is this guy going to hobble together..." but you have done an extremely awesome job. I could totally see myself driving something like this. Keep up the great craftsmanship!

I managed to get the last of the panels cut out tonight and temporarily mounted in place.

The garage is too dark for good pictures but hopefully over the weekend I'll get the wheels back on and get it outside again.

For now the plastic coating will stay on the panels to keep me from scratching them up.

That is some nice looking work, there Nate.

One of the hardest part of this build is the pain in the ass anytime I need a part and the parts guy says "whats it for?" I tell him and then get the deer in the headlights look.

The latest was the shocks which I did actually get installed but not without modification.

Here's the rest of today's progress.
