Finished up the 3rd member this weekend. Need to get some straps from Wizzo but its finished.Cage was fully tacked together and pre assembled ready to be finished welded. Should be able to fit 2 spares out the back.IMG_20200207_165437_905.jpg20200208_164904.jpgSnapchat-1234395814.jpgSnapchat-1704476263.jpgSnapchat-1578665421.jpgSnapchat-22143190.jpg

PCI 50w race communications came in and was told the bypasses have shipped from kingIMG_20200309_183810_707.jpg :woot: :woot:
Worked getting upper link tabs built.The 2.25in lowers were definitely worth the price over the old 1.75 lower that will now be the uppers20200308_160610.jpgSnapchat-41696313.jpg20200308_153830.jpg

How did you prep for the paint on cage. I cleaned real well but i did not use a 60 grit like was suggested and the paint scratched easier than I like. I think it is because i left the metal too smooth. Looking for a comparison.

Thats about what i did. It looks good but seems to scratch easier than i thought it would. It is nice being able to weld thru it though.

Finally got it mounted on all 4s for mock up and clearance check.Going to have to cut all the links down a .5in to 1in to get coils straighter. With that final tear down has commenced.20200404_160440.jpgSnapchat-1581819794.jpgSnapchat-1547387827.jpgSnapchat-355772001.jpgSnapchat-1342175819.jpg20200404_205019.jpgI can say one thing I cannot wait to see how good this thing stops.20200405_111013.jpg
