So I picked up the remaining decals from the shop today. They are awesome! I'll try and get to applying all of them over the weekend. I did get a chance to stick a couple on tonight:

Finished both sides. It took me all day long! I'm sortof a perfectionist when it comes to decals. It had to match on both sides exactly. I'm really tired right now, but it was worth the year long hassle of designing, refining, and applying these decals. Hope you guys appreciate the hard work I've been putting into my little Baja. My neighbors think I'm nuts. Lol

Your door bars, You need to get some sort of brace on it. some one will step on it and it will bend or you will hit somthing etc. This could make some bad things happen to the pan etc.

but it does look soo cool!

Thanks!

yeah, they were originally the sprint bars. I changed my mind so I just cut off the extensions. I didnt think it would mess up the pan because the bolts go all the way through the sides. Worst case scenario, the side bars will bend down if someone steps on it. I just didn't want the side of the body itself to bow when someone stepped on it. I was also thinking of fabbing a support bar that hides under the pan. Do you know of anyone who's done that?

If you look at most cars you will see the bar that run up behind the door just inside the rear door frame. This is a strong spot and you can run a small 1/16 or 1/8 plate on the back side to stiff it up a little bit.
The targe spot would be about the "G" in Gumout

I was hoping to find another way than to have a body mounted brace. I was thinking something along the lines of an under the body, jeep stlye rocker slider. anyone ever try that?
