Ok, Keith, I already sent him a windscreeen. Funny thing about Janey is that Mike and I thought we were abusing her on hell's revenge, but cgalpin has proven otherwise. BTW 6800 is a steal for that truck.

OK heres some more pics for your enjoyments.. I went and picked my cage bits, my interior stuff, and a few other parts as you can see in the pile in the garage, right now im putting on the new pass fender wing assy, and Im installing my Tcase..

as you cna see the bulkhead where the windscreen attaches is a little tweaked I think a piece of plate and the winch of my truggy should be able to straighten it? eh?

doubt it will be much of an issue out there in UT. a good body man can bash/pull that out to something approaching good enough.

Im not an anal person, so for me! its going together very well. IM quite suprised that the body lines are lining up as well as they have..

Hopefully my color match is done soon so I can get the ole girl in the garage, so I can shoot the nose..

As far as rust and galvy stuff.. we dont have rust issues here very much, mine is pretty much completly rust free, i have a little bit of surface rust on the frame where the previous owner had a belly skid on there, but thats it...

Lane,

You had mentioed that you were going to paint it Trident green to match the tub.

FYI I do not think that is Trident green, Trident is an aquaish color.

You can buy a replacement part that would completely replace the dented part of the bulkhead for about $30.
