    The non locking strip ones work great,I have installed a few.They seem to big until you are done.
    I have a good locking strip one(without the strip) that I don't need.

    I knew you were going to come back to it. I don't think lazy is a word anyone would use to describe you.

    I got the trim figured out. It was my mistake. I had help and saw the install vid. Kind of a neat system, actually.

    That's awfully nice of you to say, Kohler. I did get up at 5am this morning to get started.

    Here's some pics...

    As far as seat bases, this is like striking lightning twice. I made these floor supports. They are a channel designd instead of a "z". I welded them in where I did with little rhyme or reason. I had to land this hole from the top side through this channel yesterday and the back one inside the center of the top hat floor support.
    Probably the hardest thing I've ever done without a millimeter to spare...

    Another pet peeves of mine is seeing painted vehicles with thousands of dollars in materials on them and it looks like someone used an elephant trunk to smear the seam sealer on lol. IMG_20200123_125110917.jpg

    I've had some shrinkage issues with seam sealer. I didn't know they made a dual tube catalyzed seam sealer until recently. In the mean time, I asked the pros and compromised here with "LORD" approved brand maybe?

    Stick your elephant trunk in that...

    This pic is just for Kohler. I took special care to do a final pass of any rat holes. Haha
    Epoxy primer...

    IMG_20200123_161539618.jpg
    Bondo'd, seam sealed, and reapplied epoxy primer. IMG_20200123_161527332.jpg I'll block that then high build with 3M Marhyde, then paint. Next up is the grille(all the metal work is done on it, then the hood will be the final piece

    Thank you so much, buddy(800)!

    I have been designing this in my head ALL week. I wanted the simplest and fastest design possible.

    I hate thieves. It's hidden for all those smash and grabbers who would never look up in plain sight if you're parked in the city and need a place to stash your fake Spanish pistol, a snack, and some sparkling cider to go IMG_20200131_175641449.jpg IMG_20200131_175714967_BURST001.jpg IMG_20200131_175558118.jpg IMG_20200131_175252510.jpg IMG_20200131_175241299.jpg IMG_20200131_183718_923.jpg IMG_20200131_182630592.jpg IMG_20200131_175816140.jpg

    I think your anti-thief compartment is all but worthless - doesn't look like it would hold a six pack, unless they are broken down first. What were you thinking? And if you have to drink three of 'em first to make enough room, you may not have a steady enough hand to unlock it. What were you thinking?

    That my friend is way cool. English wheel did the tricky part? And I agree, choosing happy is always best!

    Thanks, all you guys.

    Ed, you may be surprised to find that I don't drink...at all! I mean, the sheer challenge of doing all of those things such as unlocking, reloading, and driving while wearing an eye patch!

    I used a bead roller for the recessed door opening and a sheet metal brake for folding edges. Slips in and out with no fasteners and the seat bolts on top.

    Well, I bolted my seats in today. The position fits me. I can always upgrade later to sliders, and have an inch or two if I use different holes in the seats.

    I know I had mentioned that I'm not real big on rattle cans. I found that blasting and epoxy/2k painting nuts and bolts has been excessive. And, due to the mil thickness of the paint, makes it harder to tighten fasteners while keeping the paint intact.

    I've switched to this combo. It dries in minutes, and the paint survives the wrench. Just a little fyi.
    IMG_20200202_123933225.jpg the grille has been epoxied, blocked, bondo'd then epoxied again blocked then filler primer. Hope to have these two items in paint by next week

    Looks like somebody's ready to ride shotgun..!!...
    Can you still access the compartment with the seat bolted down?
    I've used a good bit of that self etching primer...works good...I really like it on aluminium..

    Everything looking fantastic! One of my favorite flavor clif bars too! I also like the peach, and pb. Pup seems to be right at home, mine was the same before she grew up, she’d fall asleep under the truck while I was working in the garage ...... ED6FD097-8A5B-4745-A184-3206CE30EA36.jpeg

    Thanks fellas what an adorable pup!

    Greg, yes it's tight, but I can still access the compartment. Should be good for a phone, a wallet, or even a handgun for camping.

    Super pup has been with me quite a bit. She's VERY smart and learning fast. Hand motions not to go into the paint room or when it's okay to enter. I never had a dog that was smart, lol.

    I have been getting VERY burnt out. Yesterday, I bead rolled a cow in aluminum for one of my daughters. She's really into cows(bull/cow all the same to me). I've been missing the metal work quite a bit. I weathered it artificially. The reason I added this is because if you let your mind run wild, you could write "scout II" in cursive in a tailgate, logos, names, pictures, whatever you want. Then weld that panel into your project. Beadrollers rock

    I have been working on the windshield frame and grill(e). When I thread chased the bottom holes for the brackets, I did a really dumb thing. It was all body worked and readyrto paint when I went too far and cracked the primer. I screwed the tap too far. I had to cut the filler and primer out with a razor blade and redo that section yesterday. Today I painted them. The grille center will be black. Probably just SEM Trim black...

    Nice work on the cow/bull, your attention to detail on it's undercarriage is second to none!
    Is there a reason you painted the center and lower grille while bolted together instead of assembling them after painting?

    Thank you all for the kudos. Someone wanna come finish this thing for me?

    Mine are pinch welded together. Which makes me wonder now if there was a variance like the wings that come off of the inner fenders to bolt to the sides of the grille?

    Oh and on the bull. There was a little bull and I had to draw it out bigger for my daughter's 4H sign last year. I had the paper template floating around for like a year. I feel like I got his "nub" just a little too forward of the rear axle
