I can give you some small pieces. You can see my thinking on the Taco axle then, if you swing by. If you want foot-long lengths, best bet is to call up Altitude Steel and have them cut you some (be sure to emphasize 3" ID). They cut me a foot or so, and because I couldn't get down there in time they left it hidden outside their gate after they closed. Great folks.

I remember seeing an article about a guy in Utah who made his own soft top out of Sunbrella material. Made his own hoops, etc. Turned out very nice. It would be right up your alley, FabBoy.

Very nice work, and different and that is cool. I like the belly section a lot as the gas tank movement. I have thought about some of it but just don't think I would want to tackle all of that at once. Now the tank moving might be a nice thing to do.

Can't wait to see the rest, keep it going.
