The Body Shell is Finally Home

Over the weekend we were able to get the body shell back down to my place so that I can make some more progress.  There’s been a delay on the delivery of steel needed for the frame stretch so it hasn’t been able to be completed yet.  I’ll call again this morning to see if I can hopefully get a target date for completion.

My Dad was also able to help deliver the body and stay to lend a hand throughout the weekend.  We had to do a little re-arranging of things in the garage.  Man… it’s tight quarters in there!  It will definitely make a difference once I can get those HUGE tires on the frame.  They’re taking up lots of space even when stacked.

Surprisingly we were able to get the body into the garage without having to cut it.  Turns out that the body is pretty much 20 feet exactly and not the 21 feet that I had originally thought.  I really didn’t want to have to cut the body before we attempted to mount it.  It’s just so much easier when it is all in one piece.  It’s always nice to receive some good news during a build.

It also looks like the 30Cals and the gas caps are going to fit just fine with some quick test fitting.

You can also get a sense of what its like to look out the front windows while you’re driving.  This thing is going to be a blast to drive 🙂
