    I 2nd that - awesome work.

    FWIW, if its possible, I'd make it removable, like in a Scout - I was doing some transfer case stuff on my 800A - and neighbors had wandered over to look, and were in awe that I had the cover off and had all that access directly to the top of the transmission and transfer case.

    I've never heard of someone saying they have too much access to their transmission. I would make the whole thing removable.

    Against all of your better judgement, I opted to sheet most of it in. The top will be removable and I have quite a bit of access from underneath as well. I reworked the pedal area so it doesn't look like such an after thought. A couple of spots on the floor are "oil canning", I still need to stich weld the sheet to the tube structure underneath, if it's still there after that I'll try to shrink it with a torch.

    Thanks guys! I had to Google "Killdozer"... now I'm not sure if that was a compliment or an insult :laugh:. Yes, it's getting carpet and as much sound insulation as I can afford.

    Got some more sheet metal set in place. Finally found an old tire (315/75-16) for mock up on the wheel (US Wheel 659 16" x 8"). Also made a battery tray.

    Nice work! The tray looks good! I've never seen batteries mounted underneath before. Any concern about mud and water splashing up and gunking up the terminals?

    Thanks for the compliments guys! I'm getting more and more excited as things get closer but still so much more to go.

    A little concerned about the batteries under there but no too much, I'll use good battery terminals and some corrosion inhibitor.

    I got the dodge radiator, intercooler and AC condenser mounted. Also mounted the Thuren Fabrication Sway Bar.
