I did this ________ for $100 OR LESS!
 
To borrow the idea of another member... I thought it would be cool to see what people could do for 100 bucks or less. That's a reasonable amount for most people so let's see what we can list.

Only cost was some EFI fuel hose and EFI hose clamps along with some scrap angle iron. I think it was about $90 total.

wow I guess you do not smoke....:rofl:

No but there are no fumes anyways.

Hell I did all the welding on my rear bumper/crossmember and stuff with the tank only 3 ft away. No boom:p

I don't know if it is or not but that gas tank just looks scary. Do you drive that daily? I am curious how many times you will get pulled over by cops just wondering what the heck it is. :rofl:

He's got a build thread going on it. I've got it crawled and I'm always looking at it. You should check it out. He's doing some really neat fabrication to that Jeep. :thumbsup:

Obtained a 3.5ft by 6ft utility trailer, cleaned, primed, and painted it, and reinstalled the wood floor and sides. Total cost: $25 for the 2 cans of spray primer and 2 cans of Automotive Cherry Red spray paint :thumbsup:
It's going to be my camping trailer. All I have left is run the wiring, which I have, buy new brake lights and tires, and get it registered!!! :woot:

Not running and driving yet so I can't comment on that... but

it will be daily driven and I gaurantee you it's a lot less scary than some half-*** fuel cells I've seen installed.
