  12. I am digging it. Any shots of your rear floor subrails? What materials did you use, 1x3 box tubing?

  14. Sounds like an interesting process. More than likely above my skillset, but would like so see how it works and the result.

    I like it!
    Tried 36 headlights on my AV8, but the tires hit , so I changed them.
    I see you've mounted them to avoid that. [​IMG]

    Great work, floors are awesome ! One question about the panel below the trunk lid, is the lip above that panel which meets the lid when closed a repo piece or did you fabricate it ? I'm converting from rumble to lid and not sure how it comes together. Thanks,
