Beautiful!! I like the brake lights added to the roll bars. I have 40 LEDs on mine. Hoping the guy on the cell phone in the Suburban sees them in time. Rod. What are the 5 straight tubes laying on the rear cover? Part of the top? Hope mine turns out half as good as yours.

Looks great. I like the curved tubes from the tunnel to the dash. Is there a shelf above them on the passenger side?

Thanks guys. The curved tube in front of the dash does not have a shelve, it acts as a bar to hold on to. Actually, I added it just for looks.

Yes it is a luggage rack on the rear deck. I added it for looks also. From the side, the very tall roll bar and low flat, horizontal deck just didn't look very good to me, so I added the rack to break up that line.

Very nice Rod. Lots of great ideas and little touches to make it yours. I really like the "oh [PooPoo] handle" for the passenger, the split hood(how about an open hood photo), the muffler cover(does it stay cool) and the exposed tube around the rear that would somewhat protect your body panel. Oh, and I can't forget the cup holders.
Well done!

Doug
