    Update: I ordered the barn door rubber from lmc. Disappointed in the fact that it was not notched out for the hinges. So I had to cut it. Then quite a few of the clips did not come close to lining up. The clips where not quite long enough either. It is mostly glued on. I used a brass punch to help get the clips seated.

    Worked on the head liner. Used 1/8” sanded plywood stained classic grey. I am no carpenter. My seems where not great, I would have liked it to turn out a bit better. Overall I’m happy. Used just a standard transition panel for the seams from Lowe’s. I should have taken the time to stain one like the rest of it but it was a after thought. I know should have thought about my seams before. [​IMG]

    So I replaced the tie rods and added that correct steering arm. Wasn’t too bad since I went with all new parts. I have learned that amazon has the right parts Oriellys has to order them and then they where wrong. My local performance shop didn’t have them, although I should have been patient and ordered them from them and had to wait a few weeks.[​IMG]

    Got the wheels back from powder coat, went with Maxxis MT in a 35. Will need to add some steering stabilizers now. [​IMG]

    I am looking for electric window switches. The single style with the center post that runs through the back. Also needing two electric lock switches. LMC seems like the only spot to get them. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Did you swap out the steering arm? I see the bolts are loose.
