    i left the sides big like that so i can mount a radio up there. gotta save up some ducks to buy one. then i'll fab the bracket according to what size the radio and scangauge will be. i sanded down the edges, so they are not sharp.
    now if i can get the oldlady to make a beer run, i'm going to finish it today. hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Gee......looks like you should line the edges with something. In the event of an accident your gonna split your head open for sure. Seems like an easy fix. Nice fab work though.
