Fabbed up Body Mount



Here I used a replacement captured nut for the rear body mount on top of the mount I fabbed not pictured is the rear mount but i made it removable to make it easy to get the body on and off. Ifyou have ever taken one of these bodies off you know thw bottom of the rear quarter hangs up we fixed that LOL



If you look on this pis at the front of the frame rails are the front mounts had to do a little trimming for the big ass sway bar but its strong and works perfect





Should make the back out of lexan thats to pretty to cover up LOL

Fresh out of the mold the fiberglass rockers are getting bolted on for the first time



Drivers side fresh out of the mold



Fiberglass bumpers getting molded into the body Has to make them 2 piece so the lower valance can still be removed







Shot of the bumpers and rockers



Roughing them in you can see the split in them now and will make it almost invisable valance slides into the bottom of bumpers
