Thanks.  Rattle can primer would have looked better then the green gunk that was on there.

Time to add a few more. I am actually ahead of what the pictures show. Tonight i have been fighting with fit and finish issues with the mirrors and rear flares. The fit is terrible on these. What a pain in the arse! I'll post those at a later date. These are the start of reassembly.


touch up prior to the rear glass being reinstalled

 FatMating the entire interior. (thanks to scottd3 for this idea.)

Making a shifter plate for my dual gate

package shelf, speakers,insulation and quarter trim panels installed

home made headliner, sail panels and deluxe dome lamp installed.
