    Its a start....I cut the outside tubing off my front SLEE, I have some more cleaning up to do but Im liking the cleaner look so far.

    I purchased a 4x4 Labs bumper kit a couple month ago to replace the rear SLEE. Now that my rear SLEE has found a new home on another CSC members cruiser its time to get my 4x4 labs bumper under way.

    Today I spent a little time and prep the rear by cutting off the rear cross member. My goal is to have it a 100% by the weekend:rolleyes: We will see:popcorn:

    It looks really nice, Phil. I like the no bumper look, myself. :)

    I spent the end of the week looking at just sitting on the 80.:rolleyes: Saturday I tacked it all together and looked at it some more. Sunday Saddletramp and his son helped me pull it off. Thanks! Im about 90% done welding and will finish later today.

    Next week Im off to Tools to grind off all my bugger welds. I tried harder on the welds you will see(pictured). So far I pleased with the results and look forward to testing.

    If I had known your welds would look that good I would have bought some sliders to you. The bumper looks terrific by the way, you have a great eye for detail.

    I had my wife help me take the bumper off the table and she now hates me again. I hope her back feels better soon, Im getting hungry.:hillbilly:

    Medtro was kind enough to drop what he was doing to help move the bumper around and mount it back on the 80. I offered the gun to him to lay down some final welds (pictured) he had never welded before.:doh: Good thing Tools has good grinders.
