    Don't mind me. I'm just happy to be another step closer to getting this truck back on the road. :D

    Also, the bedcage is now removable.

    Seats and harnesses would have been in for these pictures but the paint was still drying. :p

    Hopefully about 3 weeks! The fuel cell should be made this week, and after that it's all detail work. Driveshaft hoop, window nets, alignment, finish painting, etc., etc.

    The SCORE rules require all primary tube joints to be gusseted. The shop has been good about adding a little style to the build where they can. They recently brought a Flow waterjet online and have been cranking out some sweet stuff. Wait until you see what's lined up for the front skidplate! :spy:

    Bite me. :laugh:

    Oh hell yeah. Also gonna have clips of testing so I can look for weak points long before I'm lost somewhere in the middle of Mexico.

    For those "Did that just happen??" moments I'm also gonna have 2 cameras mounted inside the truck - 1 facing forward and 1 face backwards. Should make for some interesting footage when it's all done! Found some designed to mount to the rollcage and record to solid-state media so the bouncing around won't hurt anything.
