Looking good. How are you making your bends? Are you using a coping tool or just grinding the copes?

Cage work mostly burned in...couple extra bars and seat belt tabs and its a wrap...pics soon...then its on to interior painting and reassembly...the car is incredibly ridged at this point and feels really solid jumpin around on the door sill...im stoked...decided on single diagonals in the hoop and down bars...its easy to get carried away..less is more...guess its the desert racer in me...

Well seats still fit!

10% mocking things up, changing things
5% chasing a buzz
25% actually working and making progress...

very nice. i want to do this interior treatment to my metro someday soon. but im going to leave the glass intact and tint it so dark you cant see inside. modern day take on the old "sleeper" concept. one question though.... why are the rear seatbelts still in your car?
