Looks like it's really coming along. 

Myron, can you tell me approximately what it cost to recover that factory rear seat?

I appologize for not getting updates. Not much has happened in the last couple of weeks. It has been very hectic and I have been a bit overwhelmed. Myron being gone on that trip, we were short handed here. I have been forced to allocate less time to WFX.

For the good news I have been spending time with it this week. Will update you with pics tomorrow.

So I made up a list of what still needs to be done and the time in which I hope it should take. This is mostly the bigger things left to do, but there is some small stuff left that isn't on my list that will be getting done during the bigger things.

Finish installing seat brackets and seats- 4 hrs
Roll cage installed- 4 hrs
Wire up accessory panel to roll cage- 4 hrs
Accessory Lights wired- 8 hrs
Install interior body panels and storage boxes 4 hrs
Install ARB Air pump and lines- 4 hrs
Cut and modify trans cross member- 3 hrs
Fix problem with gauge cluster and wire neutral safety for shifter- 2-4 hrs
Replace water with coolant and top off fluids- 1 hr

I am pretty sure this is everything left. If I come across anything else I will add to it.

I meant to post this up last night, but forgot as it was past midnight.
Yesterday was pretty productive.
I got the guage cluster working.
I also got the lights mounted on the rear bumper and the ARB pump mounted under the hood.

Got the cross member modifies where the driveshaft was hitting. I think it came out pretty nice.

Fabricated mounts for the front of the roll cage to bolt to. I didn't want to simply bolt it to the floor pan so I welded the brackets to the rocker/rock sliders.

Andy is full time on this project now. Winding down is very encouraging so putting him on this one project is very big deal.
