She already had a slip n twist anti wrap bar.
So I decided to reuse it after modification.
Ordered a mount kit, because for 41 bucks it isn't worth my time to make it

Then cut apart and reworked the bar a bit.

Thing is 250 wall and the front part is solid bar.

Shocks in.
Last of the wrap bar bracket welded.
Last of the fuel line bracketry and clamps in.
Exhaust heat wrap near the slave cylinder is on.
It's getting closer.

I gotta get the other side brake done on the Mack so I can transport this thing for exhaust and nut-n-bolt it on the rack at work.

I went to the parts store to get a radiator cap.
The guy asked me what kind of car and I laughed and said nope. Told him I just need an old school style big radiator cap.
but they let me start it and warm it up long enough to find out the cooling fan works at the right temperature so that part is good to go.

It's not completely done, but it's effectively done

All 4 corners cleared, no interference besides a slight contact with the exhaust pipe. I can live with that.

And I got the heep soft top thing mounted

Big relief
