Got the fronts pretty much shaped up.

^Unfortunately no. I took the easy route and picked up a wiring harness adapter so it was literally plug and play. Didn't have the time last year to mess with wiring.

Started prepping for the cage today. I will be setting it on rises so that once all the tubes are tacked in place, i will be able to drop the cage to weld the top portion.

Starting to get used to welding with gas now. What a difference it makes!
