Very fine fabrication work!

I have a morning ritual that I need to share. I call it "the terminator". First I crouch down in the shower in the classic "naked terminator traveling through time" pose. With my eyes closed I crouch there for a minute, visualizing either Arnold or the guy from the second movie (not the chick in the third one because that one sucked) and I start to hum the terminator theme. Then I slowly rise to a standing position and open my eyes. It helps me to proceed through my day as an emotionless, cyborg badass. The only problem is if the shower curtain sticks to my terminator leg. It ruins the fantasy.

Thanks!

I'm using a 220 Lincoln... with an aircooled torch! It gets hot and hits it's duty cycle limit every once in a while.

I never bought it with the intentions to make 3/8 and 1/4 inch steel bumpers. But it works. I need a MIG too. I use 2% thoriated on steel and stainless and pure tungsten on aluminum.

Any chance of a picture of how the rear bumper is attached? Getting ready to start on my bumpers and would love to see how your's are mounted.

I don't think I have a pic, but it looks a little like this...



I used the two stock mounting holes and added a third bolt through a pre-existing hole in the frame. The side bracket has triangulated braces where it meets the bumper, like this...



The stock bumper also has two small brackets towards the center of the bumper and my bumper bolts up there also. Hope that helps.
