t want to get carried away and do too much work with the body kit before i ran my new stianless gas and break lines. Just that way when its harder to get under i didn't struggle

Then i did some grinding to get the side scoops to fit better. Just some minor grinding on the lip

So today i finally wire wheel above the rear axle. Then i used the metal brake i bought to make patches for the gas tank lip section out of the roof sheet metal. Got it tacked in and naturally ran out of welding gas.

Hey, did you put your gas and brake lines in the trans tunnel?    There are reasons those lines are typically inside a frame rail or other shielding.  A driveshaft can take both out and leave you with no brakes on a flaming car.  And that would probably damage that blue paint.  You don't want soot on that blue paint, now do ya?   :)
