Step 1. Googled "pneumatic eraser"

Agree , great job. But I do sorta miss the stripes. I thought it would be fun to turn the N into a D and run it that way for just a little while.

I agree... I like the stripes on the truck.

I thought those stripes held everything together! Oh, well. How about a blue racing stripe down the center?!

Kent, did you get the filler hose from Safari HP? Stephen promised that long ago.

Lots of fans of the blue stripes here.... Blue stripes down the center might be cool though. Little bit of Shelby style might infuse some speed into the truck.

Have not received anything from Safari yet.

So we started game planning and discussing the internal cage and worked on a couple small things. Got his doors mostly sorted out and I think we got the mounts for the front dash sorted as well. Here are a couple pics of the rust repair on the A pillar. Oh, and one of Kent enjoying some empanadas while two of my neighbors triplets have a pretty in-depth conversation about his defender!!

Can you just make the steering wheel like 8' long and have Kent sit in the back under the canvas? Sort of like when Tony Danza had the orangutan drive the limo in Cannonball Run II?

Our goal here is to do something different and innovative with the cage design..... but not so much with the soft top and seating configuration. Looks like I'll be running topless for a little while longer :/

Kent

P.S. By the way, Brewie is kicking some serious ass on the fabrication front over here. He's making things happen that I didn't even know we're possible. This truck is going to be pretty sweet.

If I do a good job could I possibly be a honorary member of your mullet crew?

Kent,

I may be missing something in the picture, but the soft top looks to be a good bit shorter than it should be. Is it possible you were sent a bed canopy instead of a full 3-door soft top? (see pic below).

Kent,

Great to finally meet you this morning sir! The 110 is looking great! I am truly impressed with the how everyone has chipped in and helped bring this project into reality. This is what it is all about!

And, hats off to Brian for his contribution! He's doing some really great work!
