    Look what showed up today! I have 2 of each. Now to decide which finish I want to use. Im leaning for the billet aluminum on the left. The console will be wrapped with black microsuede so I think the contrast will be AWESOME!

    So.... with the new welder coming, I think I need a new helmet.. and while Im at it I think it will get a sweet custom paintjob. Gonna be similar colour pallet as the Atomic Blonde movie poster. I love my Sentinel A50 I use for work and its a nice wear all day setup. But for home I want something fancy and mine. 296BFBEE-A071-4910-8546-295E26197116.jpeg B3745D0E-56C3-4341-9D33-C789054E26BD.jpeg

    First main coat is on. Let it dry and cure overnight. Should dry flat. 5861F9E8-9C3D-4254-9CBC-94E7C450B615.jpeg B077D46B-C81D-45CA-8FA8-94A880338EFB.jpeg

    Got excited on lunch and started peeling the tape up. This thing is looking F*ckin awesome! Next step is to let everything cure until tomorrow night and then more tape and blue paint layer 2D0C54E9-38C1-4586-8CCE-A9B797528F1B.jpeg 4AC9DF42-790D-4E14-BB87-BCDF30D5E639.jpeg

    The next colour coat is down. Gonna let it cure nicely overnight and through most of tomorrow. After the blue sets up nicely I will go through and fix and hide crimes and do all the fancy detail work..... thats going to be painstaking.

    I love how quickly this build moves! I may have missed it, but outside of the SOA what rear lift are you running? I'm still IFS but would like to go up to 35''s and will cut whatever needed.

    Oh okay, I think I confused the 2-gen u-bolt setup for a SOA. Very cool! It looks to flex really well! Thank you for the info, @Cptpackrat
