    Default GMV Build

    Well, I decided to start a new thread, but will include a link to my old thread in case anyone wants to look back at the upgrades I have already done.

    https://www.steelsoldiers.com/showth...-Upgrade-Build

    This process will be slow, but at least I've finally started it. Here is what took place over the weekend:

    Removed
    - Soft Top and C-Pillar

    Installed
    - new C-Pillar
    - D-Pillars
    - Rear Slats

    Next weekends goals:
    - remove windshield
    - remove B-Pillar
    - Install Hard Top Windshield
    - Set Roof on

    Well, we made a lot of progress Sunday. First hard top install so it went a little slow, but I only have a few more holes to drill, finish assembly at the B-Pillar and I should have my mock up complete. Then its a matter of disassembly for a little paint work and bring things over to the new windshield from the old one.

    I have till June 19th to get it at least road worthy for a test drive... my daughter asked for her annual ride to the last day of school and my youngest daughter has been hounding every weekend to go for ice cream.

    Well, it was a solo work day Friday and Saturday for me with the wife and kids out of town.

    Big thanks to Lionel for being on call to answer my turret questions!

    Doors and strikers mounted, Weapon Mounts installed, Turret Installed, C-Pillar and D-Pillars bolted down.

    Still need to get the strip that holds the gasket to the windshield for the hardtop and secure the B-Pillar covers.

    Oh, and after I get all this done the project saga continues... swapping radio setup out for a Sincgars setup with Blue Force Tracker, fab mount for similar rear seats, install deck extension, GMV Tool Box.... it never ends when its an addiction I guess

    There's no such thing as overkill. There are just "Open fire!" and "Reloading"

    Looking for a Parts/install TM for the AN/VAS DVE system. I have a power cable to plug into the screen but it has three wires.

    Red w/ in-line fuse
    Black
    Green

    want to make sure I hook this up right to see if the screen or the eye/sensor works
