You know the brake line T is supposed to be to the passenger's side of the diff, not atop it. Therefore if I were you I would just abandon this entire build and move down to Fresno
i love you MIKE. BUT MINE IS ON THE TOP, CAUSE I MOVED IT. LOL and my bags are packed. make sure theres room for the wife and kids.

well the tint idea on the lexan didnt work so well, so i just  sanded painted the back side. here is what i ended up with.




 then i added the rest of the stickers that i had.
 this is what my rear deck/bed ended up llooking like, i need to get some 1:1 pics to show.







 these pics are  just scarry. lol

NOT SO GOOD ATTEMPT AT PICTURE DAY!!! destination for pictures was 10 minutes from my house.

 no real update/finished pics yet. trying to get some pictures. so i have a 2 hour window to get some great sunny day pictures today. so i decide to drive my 1:1 down the road to instead of using my trailer. like i have been doing for the last few years since the big mods. and it takes time to load and unload and load and unload again at home.
 so i started my day out looking like this today. NOTE:   NO TRAILER



 i had to stop by Kevins house on the way (3 blocks away) to drop off some r/c stuff and borrow his camera.  Kev decided to come for the ride.
 so as i pull out of his driveway and turn at the stop sign. this is what i saw in my rear view mirror. this is not the actual picture, but you get the massage.



 licence and regi please!

 not a good way to start my 2 hour window to take pics of a truck that hasnt seen pavement for over 5 years. honestly not once have i diven it anywhere. trialer always.
 so the officer gets on his radio right away and calls for a traffic officer, i thought he was calling for a "VI" officer.
 so as the first officer came to talk to us. i tried to explain to him  , that i never drive my truck on the road.  and this was the first time in years it has been on pavement. .and this 10 minute drive was only for pictures, for a contest. he didnt care at all. didnt even want to look at my "MINI BIRD"    so he says to me. well this is going to cost you a fortune. for your little drive.
 i was mad at myself. argh!!!
 so the  traffic officer showed up. she was nice, said "goodmorning" then proced to tell me that she should pull my plates off this truck and i will never ever be able to insure it ever again, until  serious  modifactions are done and an inspection. now i was really mad at myself. no proper bumpers,tires stick out. modified suspension , no mud flaps,no front licence plate.. etc. the list was to big.
 i then told her the same story to her as i told the first officer. she was a little more understanding,but she said it was totally up to the first officer to decide on what fine to give me.

 so we waited patiently.................
 as im talking to Kevin. we both said, all this for some pics of a little r/c truck,lol. and we could almost see Kevins driveway still. argh !!!
...........
.............
......
...
..
.
 then the first officer came back to my truck. and told me that i was a bad boy.
 but today was my lucky day.
  he said that im not alloud to  insure my truck for the road ever again, but i can get off road insurance only.
 and he gave me a ticket for not having a front licence plate. and that was it. wow. what a morning. blew my 2 hour window all to HELL!!.
 SO LESSON LEARNED!!! DONT RUSH IT!!!  CAUSE IN RICK'S WORLD.....IT WONT HAPPEN!!!
 AND ONLY LEAVE THE DRIVEWAY LIKE THIS!!!



 
 and not like this




 OR GET THIS!!
