Under tub rollcage support is in, tub and rear lights done.

The holes in the ST tub on the 45 degree part of the wheel well seem to be too high. About an inch.
The place where my SW interior cage ties into the under tub stuff.

It also seems that the lowest rear door hinge(ST) is a bit higher than on an SW.

Thanks
I'm just dealing with some issues with the new tub. I didn't realize that the hinges on an ST were different from a SW.
Also had to put the RN rear light kit on the rear lights, mostly because I couldn't find most of the connectors from he swap.
Also still trying to get the ST spare tire carrier sorted out.

What problem did you have with the hinges?

The SW hinges are in slightly different places than the ST tub I used.

Brian, I got the hood stick today. Thanks. Finally someone who packs things like me.
Curious about where the gutter kit and the windscreen meet. It looks a bit off.

I have a different front retainer for the soft top. I'm sure it will work the same as long as your soft top slides in. It's funny bc we both have very similar monsters!!

Better to be lucky. The spare tire carrier and my new tub match up perfectly. Replaced the bushings from macmaster and drilled out the mounts so they could use regular bolts.

Still need the piece of the carrier that has the 45* angle and receives the black knob on the carrier? Anyone?

Doors are hung, turns out it was much easier to put the hinge on the bulkhead first and then bolt the door up.

Build is coming along nicely! Looks great.

What color/configuration hood are you using?

Big push to get it on the road. Lots of wiring, bled the brakes, I think, seem pretty good. Thank goodness for the power bleeder. Clutch done, bled that is. Been working for 4 days, and I can't remember what I did.
No matter what I do I can't seem to get the little s hard line at the clutch slave away from the exhaust down pipe.
