    Made progress over the weekend. Not as much as I would have liked, but progress.

    Rear cage tube connectors fit & welded. Used the porta-power to get it all lined up. EF27CE35-7913-4194-A049-CDDF49B86132BCF01FFB-C35B-418B-AF79-FE947B640A88

    Knocked out the fuel cell mount yesterday. CF67EA71-091F-4620-8AF4-BCAE56ACECD019C00ADD-7095-4170-83C2-548055312C94CEDB80E1-0D01-4197-98BC-141B2A023003B1911DDC-F0E9-4B8F-A8C9-B57D6C3F5011

    15 gal RCI cell. Filler neck will be changed to a large diameter for quicker fill.E586D2B5-72FA-4CE2-8D1B-3A00B532A1B1701CB396-413D-4240-9C63-5E484CE9FF72

    Thinking about mounting the spare up front for better weight distribution. These cars are rear heavy, hoping to balance it out a bit. 4582672C-9AD9-47FD-8473-ECF362ACF210

    Fire wall today. Dzus tabs fit and welded to b-pillars.1B1FE91F-EB44-4A72-BB4B-9D308F9EF4A8

    Look’in good Pat. Is the upside down VW on the rear engine cage on purpose? 🙂

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Rusty was the first to notice that.

    Nope just happened. Serendipitous I guess.
