i used some np1 sonoplastic stuff for the seam sealer over all the welds and then put herculiner over everything.








unfortunately the herculiner that i have is the rough textured kind. i was hoping to get the smother kind but this was on sale for like $45 for the 1 gallon kit so for half the price i can live with it.

Hey i was reading your build and I strongly suggest the roll cage!!! To be honest these cars were not built to the safety ratings we have today. They dont hold up in a roll or hard hit. Its so much better to put it in now for several reasons. Not only the safety just as a daily driver but it will look cooler and if you ever switch to a Baja you are already there.

haha did it start black or did it get a few coats of paint?

hopefully i will be able to go by the local steel yard and go through the cut off bins and get the tube i need to beef up the rear forks.

what so you guys think so far??

Came in black from the store. It's faster than your heater too. Only if it had flames, now that would be cool or hot???? or just on Fire!

lol no theres just alot more ppl on there is the only reason. everyone there is wound wayy to tight. it drives me crazy. everyone here is calm and cool. there you say one thing and everyone spazzes out.

ill try and copy paste everything over here to. so everything will be on both threads Very Happy

you guys have any comments on the progress so far? im hoping to put the body back on the chassis in a couple of days and fit the roll cage.

the fit between the body and the chassis is not to amazing.. ill be back in here with pics and im gonna need some help on closing the gaps between the two :\

i do have the belly pan gasket btw but it hink there are some spots that are to much for that to fix
