Guess I could get a HF bender, used one like it back in HS, they're easy enough to do.

I don't know what you mean by stop sign frame though. Design wise I'd go like this: http://shop.hooliganoffroadengineeri...r-Full-Set.htm

Only thing is I need the welder too >

The stop sign frame will put you through the test of making consistent bends and lining them all up so your ends meet.

It'd look good.

Yesterday I got all the wiring hooked up for my switch panel, only thing left is to run the leads to different relays, etc.

Since I can finally put my driver side window all the way up, I washed her. Somehow got lucky and the power washer I used counted each quarter as 4, so I put in 3 bucks, got about 20 minutes of wash time, and did cleaned every inch of her.

Trying to find someone to go halves with me on this so I don't have to spend a whole paycheck.

Literally just have to swap the axle up front and it will pass inspection.


Hmm, who wants to donate like 350 bucks to the cause?
