Thanks, I am happy with it so far. Though I am a bit disappointed with the passenger seat. But only because It has to sit a bit higher than the drivers side due to the gas tank. Now that the seats are in I am getting excited to drive it, but since I cant yet I played around in the snow with another one.

I am looking for some opinions in regards to the roll cage. I was originally going to put some sheet metal bracing along the top of my fenders to add support in the even of a flop or roll. Along with this I would have made some square plates for underneath the fenders for each of the four roll cage legs.
Would this be necessary or even help or is bolting the cage to the tops of the fenders (all new metal) enough?

Side doors are on! They were more troublesome than I expected.

Thank you. I am very happy with how things are turning out. The list of things to do is getting smaller. I have to finnish connecting all the fuel lines, paint/install the "grill", cut the rear fenders to shape, put on the diamond plating, reconnect the lights, and do some engine work.
