Nice designs! I love the color of that 40 :-)
I like the way the fixed part of the carrier frame clears the tail lamps, but allows full access to the lower part of the bed.
Looks like the wiring harness could use some work :-O
Looks like some serious fender trimming going on with that rig. Is the slider bolted or welded to the frame, in addition to being bolted to the lower rocker panel sheet metal?
Except for Dave Brown and Bruce Miller's T-Rex 40 series sliders, most people I've seen usually bolt or weld some angle iron to the underside of the lower rocker panel, and yank the step panels. The step panels on my 71 are pretty beat up, and I can see why people put sliders there, but they don't look near as bad a stock wagons with no sliders. Seems like wagons and runner's rockers are a lot more vulnerable than shorty 40's.

Sweet looking 40 there Oleg! I love the highlift jack mount, what a great idea!
Are you selling these things or is this just another example of some of the custom work you have been doing lately?

I like the clean integration and re-use of the existing bolt holes on the highlift. Great placement.
I like the placement of the spare tire -- helps compensate for "Cruiser Lean."

Very nice work.
My 2 comments are: I generally like the rear tire carrier and basket to be on seperate swivels. That way you don't have a giant swing out and can access one door when needed. Obviously my opinion. The other is I'd be concerned about the sliders/frame flexing and tweaking the jack mount/winshield frame. They look stout though....

We need an Oleg update!
Saw Oleg last week and he is doing a little better.
He is able to drive to the shop a few days a week for a few hours at a time.
It's obvious he is still in a lot of pain from the headaches and double vision.
He has hired another employee to take up the slack and business seems to be good.
Oleg is focusing on the Internet sales here on Mud from home.
He is very appreciative of all the help we gave him.
The way he is now, he may not be going to Moab as planned. His brother Yuri will still likely go.

Is he/his shop doing body work yet?

Went by there today and had their employee, Vladimer do some welding. Oleg had a bad weekend and was at home.
I think it will be a while before Oleg is doing body work. He is refering body work to another shop in the same complex.
