Save your pics to your puter and then load them directly to the site. No need for any middle men. Posting them directly to here will allow them to be here for as long as this site is up and running unlike the pics posted here from other sources.

loyalty to the American people."

Thanks! Definitely enjoyed this project up to this point.
We have 3 rails in the garage and have different projects going with each and we leave in 3 weeks for a 10 day dune trip!! We always do this to ourselves every year.. 5: LMAO

I will add more as we get this finished up. My dad has kicked ..... on the body so far! Kudos to him on that.

I did get to drive it about 4 miles around the woods to my dads place, one word....unbelievable!! Not even the same car anymore. I will update on my thoughts on that after we get it finished up. These 2 pictures sum it up tho!

definitely one of the best conversions I have seen by far.

Thanks Fabr!!
My son and I have really enjoyed doing this together. We put alot ideas together on how we wanted it to look when done and trying to make sure it would be strong as well. I think we hit both although I may have not saved as much weight as I originally wanted to but I really like the way its turning out. And now we get to work with my dad on the sheet metal so its been a great project with them to. Cant wait to wrap it up and load it up and try it out at the dunes in a week.

if you were to change the color, no one would believe thats the same rail! nice work. i am glad it rides well but it will require some shock tuning to ride perfect. as perfect as one wants to make it  ;) ;D   looks great, looks well braced and its still lighter then the beam.....maybe not by much with all the additional bracing but still lighter. it will turn far better then the beam and a better ride.

We definitely are interested in hitting up another (new to us) dune in the future, will definitely plan this around this groups ride that is done.
