Now the 'after" photos

Got a few pictures of the rust bucket turned beach buggy after liberal coatings of Corroseal and 3M undercoating. Fighting rust on OBX surf fishing vehicles is a constant battle. At least I've slowed it down. In the view from the rear, you can see the spare tire holder which is what most of the undercarriage looked like.

Those 5 gal fishing buckets have been invaluable also. Quite a bit of jack force was used to get the rear attachment bracket pushed up far enough with just the right amount of angle. I'll take some more photos of the interior insulation. You can also see one of the plywood jigs I used to angle the bars so the mount points were flush with the van mount points.
Looks great! Thanks for the shout out! Might need to issue "one-man" install version of our instructions
