    Me too! I can't wait either. Once this cage is out of the way. It should be much easier with what I have to do.


    Top shot of eyebrow bar. I have a fingers width to headliner at the bends on it. Not sure if I should massage the joints and let it slide up a little more or just leave it alone.

    OK so I tweaked the Eyebrow bar. Added a 5* bend in center. Which let it slip up roof bars a little more and then follows roof line nice and tight.





    Front floor is prepped and ready to burn in the roof bar. So next weekend it will be time to be one with the welder and melt some friggn wire and knock this thing out once and for all.

    Dear god I should have put in a roll bar. I really, really, really hate trying to weld at weird angles or hard to see spots. Can't get to top part of eyebrow bar unless I pull windshield. Then top of roof bar about 3/4" area where it meets main hoop. I could not get headliner off. Apparently some jackass at Ford thought it would be a good idea to use glue to hold it to roof and it appears to be backed with friggn cardboard. Had every fastener out before finding it was glued in. Just need to get it shifted away from weld area so I can get it welded. Heck if I can get it moved I may even reach top of eyebrow bar, I think. Need a smaller mig gun or something.

    Ahh well it's mostly in before my patience wore out.
