I'm about 90% done on my rear lights. I still need to clearance the holes for a perfect fit on the lights, weld it in, and paint it. I'm pretty happy with it. I was going to skin it, but I wasn't liking the look and chose to leave it naked. I plan doing a similar hoop off the upper rear bumper bar for two more LED's that can be converted to turn signals if I choose to go street legal.





I still need to strip and paint the rear bumper.


I wasn't digging this look, but I did cut and bend a piece. I didn't like it at all. It looked like a bonnet. I forgot to take a pic.

it is looking good......looks like a completely diff rail.  just a suggestion and your there so you have to mock it and up and look it over cause the rear pic and side angle doesn't give much to go on.  what do you think the roof would look like if you made it one piece and instead of bending it down around the light hoop to match your tail lights you started say.....4" behind the top bend in the roof and fanned out to the outer roll bar cage straight across from the lights? then make an interior skin attached to it that you could put a speaker in on both side behind and above each seat and an led dome light in the middle in front of your tail lights? you could put 2 dome lights actually....1 for the occupants and one that shines over the motor in case you need to inspect something at night.

That sounds bad ass! I was thinking about possibly doing a one piece roof back to the lights, but I hadn't thought about lights and speakers. I was just going to run with an Altec Bluetooth speaker and stream Pandora (when signal is available anyway).

Damn you dsrace! It's bad ass suggestions like this that make me obsess instead of finishing the damn thing! 5:

Finally got a plasma cutter! Bwahaha! I'm dangerous now! I told my wife, "When I get a new tool in the mail I'm not opening a box with a tool, I'm opening a box full of possibilities!"





Need to fab some cord and cable hangers on my cart this weekend.


Can you take the Grounds from both the plasma Cutter and the Welder and Make a short Lead that bolts to the Cart and then have one ground cable from there to the work to Ditch one cable? Never seen it done .. just thinking out loud.

I don't mind the extra ground. Makes it easier if I have to take one or the other to work at a friend's place anyway.

lol lol well just a suggestion and easily done at this stage in the building process lol  and an i pod or something like that can be plugged directly into an amp then out to speakers or even your phone as long as it has a head phone jack. then you could take your play list with you and let everyone else hear it lol lol dome lights are very nice and one over the engine just in case might come in handy! if not for anything else than add fuel in the dark for a night ride lol

you could but I believe it would not be to code nor completely electrically safe.Probably need to ask someone that knows for sure tho.
