The compartment in the tray are a great idea. Did you have any luck finding a snorkel?

Thanks, no not yet on the snorkel, but still looking. I would like to mount this one, but i need some measurements to make sure i can mount it to the top of the fender. I will be using just the upper portion. :D

I went with marine grade vinyl and 2" foam. Minus the $75 for the extra vinyl i bought for the headliner and door panels, these seat cost me $590. This lady is expensive, but she does good work. ;)

It think $590 is probably pretty good - My upholstery guy quoted me $800 to do a full set of seats (both front, and both rear jumpers) if I provided the vinyl.

WOW, i don't feel so bad now. A few years ago i had all 4 seats in my Patrol done by another shop here and it cost me $650.00 and that included 4 extra yards of vinyl for the headliner. This lady here does an excellent job, if you have the old material for a pattern, she can duplicate the original seats.

We pulled the body off the frame yesterday so we could build the crossmember and finish welding the cab mounts and fish plates where we extended the frame. Today i hope to pressure wash the frame and wire brush it so we can apply the por15.
The top pic here is the inspection cover that i cut into the bed for fuel sender access.

I dont have any pics right now, my ipad has been down for a couple of weeks. The frame is done and coated with POR15 i also sprayed the bottom of the cab and bed with POR15. The 2" exhaust is done, and i have started to fab the tranny cover and instrument panels. After that i will finish the body work on the fenders doors hood and bed. I also ordered that snorkel that you see a few posts back. I hope it will work. Still a lot of work ahead, but im on the down hill slide. :D

I look forward to seeing how you mount the snorkel. I considered using that same snorkel but ducting it through the vent that is in the rear of the hood rather than using all the snorkel's lower tubing.
