Well... Im frustrated :/ we got the back end of the cage done. And i really like how the back end of the cage turned out. But the front we were having problems getting stuff lined up, my bends were right a bunch a stuff wasn't right. So we decided to quit for the day and get back at it some other time.. But there's like $180 worth of dom that's wasted :/

Alright, well i got my tail lights all wired up again! The last two days before work i took apart the wiring harness that runs to the back and go rid of all the wires i don't need anymore, like for the wiper motor and stuff. And when i chopped the top i accidently cut the wires that lead to the passenger side tail light so i had to splice those wires in again. But instead of running them right across the 'tailgate' area, i sliced them further back in the wiring where the back seat used to be!

I got a rear view mirror on today, (since i don't even know where mine want when i rolled it) and then went to the jy and got a drivers mirror!

So now with my lights and mirrors im finally street legal again! so i drove her to work today

i got to work about 30 minutes early so i also sliced in a little lightbulb to illuminate my rear license plate at night

Ps, this little light is definitely not permanent, its just for a couple days. But for like 15 minutes of work i don't think its half bad if it keeps me from getting pulled over

Oh, and just a tip for anyone reading, the fill plug on the ax-15 is a 24mm. it took me forever to find the right wrench/socket for it. I ended up using a 24mm socket, cause i don't have that size wrench :/

project flipper!!-2012-08-27-15.42.52.jpg

These are my sheet metal benders. I tried harbor fright ones but they can't.bend 18 ga... Maybe 24! but anyways, they are old horse shoe nail clippers! I ground down the point where they.came together and welded in two pieces of 3/8 stock i had around. They work real good!
