Great progress!  I'm not good at body work, always like to see others make progress!

Crazy, but any chance you can get a picture of the lower clips that hold on the door panels? I can't get mine on. No worries if your panels are still on or the clips are already gone.

Thanks! Mark

Really interested in doing the swap after seeing how it turned out. Do you have any pictures of the lower rear control arm mounts? Just curious how you attached them and where they landed on the frame

Very simple home made bracket with a urethane bushing . bolted on the side and bottom.
Bottom hole is slotted to allow for caster adjustment. I modified the frame to make a flat surface to mount because of how low I went.
i am sure there is more than 1 way to do it.

Doing a little more work. wanted a better universal way to mount just about any kind of seat that I found in the junk yard that I might like. currently i am running maximia seats with a dodge center section.

Added in the 4x4 high hump to the floor. making a little more room to improve the drive line angle or possibly go with a manual in the future.
