Oh
Love watching some one do fabrication. So much to learn. To have the imagination (be able to see the outcome while your coming up with it), must be nice.

So, disassembled it all and tacked the pieces in place... took some tweaking, but it should be ready to weld in place.
All of it is really ready to go, except for the new mount underneath that I have to tack in place and remove the clamps.
Once that is done and the bottom of the new panel screwed in place, I can take it all apart, treat the metal, put it back together and welderup.

Felt pretty good last night... been a long time coming.

Everything is still level as well... even after the 240 lb. gorilla test... I was in and out of it a lot and it is very solid with no flex and that is just screwed/clamped together, when it is all welded/glued up, it should be great.

It was bitterly cold last night and I didn't let it "air out" before the last picture.
The new LED's really show the haze from grinding/welding at the end of the night.

They sure do but you can’t beat the smell

Got back from traveling a bit and some vacation.
Was able to meet up with FLCJ8 when I was down in FL.
Was able to check out his Scrambler and LJR, really nice guy, we talked for a while... good times.

Finally back, got hit with another storm, kids didn't have school... catching up.
Got outside last night... was good.
Blew it all apart, painting up with galvanzing spray, patching up the holes, small stuff.

Still need to patch and paint these parts.

I hope to get out and get some more done the next few nights.
I do have a couple Jeeps/projects to check out this weekend, we will see what happens.

good eye... the other one worked fine, put it down and when to use it and just dead... I had it for a while now and was sad... but I had been at Lowe's the other day and they had a scratch and dent sale and grabbed a backup for short money.

Fired it up and good to go.

Packaged up and sent out parts, but had a few minutes to weld up one and get the other one ready.

So one of the panels really warped badly and wasn't fitting correctly... even with heating it, etc. it just wasn't going to be fixed as I wanted it... so I did a bit more on fixing things up... ended up breaking the new grinder in the process... rains/pours ;)

Welded in and ground a lot down... making progress.
Bought 2 Jeeps yesterday, so that will slow things down a bit.

Almost ready to weld it all up solid... some minor tweaking on the right hand side still and then it should be good to go.
