Mark, check your dividers in your offside box.

I think you have the shelf at the back when it should be at the front.

Holes on the forward bottom for the power supply.

Or am I looking at it wrong?

You see it right I was to lazy to flip the box to take the pictures last night. It is not spot welded in yet and was just sitting in it backwards for the picture. Robin caught it also in a text earlier

I had actually made a comment to my partner in the project about how fast it would take someone to notice. He owns the metal shop I am using and will be making them with me with his employees in the future for sales.

After a few weeks off the project due to vacation and work we put a few hours in tonight. The rear seat, other side of the big cabinets are now programmed into the cnc program. Plan to cut them out soon. Basically have the antenna box left to program then production starts.

A new update on the boxes. Tonight we got all the hat channels drawn up, generator rear cover, and attaching to side brackets. Next week we will have both styles of rear seats, speaker brackets, and battery cable cross overs. Then all boxes for the mz jeeps will be drawn and going into production to figure out time and material costs. Hope by end of September to have a full price out there and start taking orders

Good job, Mark. :D

I have been getting inquiries as to cost, availability of the various pieces and even use of drawings from Europe.
