Won this nice little kinetic rope the other day. Im sure it will get used this winter
Look what showed up today! I have 2 of each. Now to decide which finish I want to use. Im leaning for the billet aluminum on the left. The console will be wrapped with black microsuede so I think the contrast will be AWESOME!
Those are hot.
right?! Im pretty excited. I have to figure out the shifter surrounds and a couple other things but they will match everything nicely
Those are clean
If anyone is curious on getting their own custom switch panels waterjet cut, here is the link. Scott does AWESOME work. #funfact His first time offroading I took him off The Drop on Steel bender in Moab and stood my truck on it's nose. He about shiat his pants. 1 month later he bought a jeep.
Here's his Business FB page.
Back to some cage work.... really need a spare set of hands for all this.
Hooked onto a semi today... he decided to bury his pass side rears in 1' snow drift and park. Couldnt come forward or back. I dropped it to 4lo and pulled him
I love that you got TOTM / Cover photo. How cool.
thanks! I tossed up my best/favorite picture and it won!
I know you saw it already, but its on the FB page, if you arent okay with that, ill pull it down.
share away! Everyone knows the truck lol
Tig welder ordered.... gonna be able to build fancy things at home now.
What one did you go with?
Nothing fancy, has good reviews and some useful features.
Not a fan of Yellow, gonna have Luke with Lifestyle Offroad design me a custom wrap for it
Also just purchased a small benchtop belt sander and a bimetal holesaw set. Gettin ready to get sh!tty lol
Looks like a neat setup!
Couple of the things I bought yesterday. Can't wait to start building the new welding bench. Gonna be dialed in perfect for my height and space.
So.... with the new welder coming, I think I need a new helmet.. and while Im at it I think it will get a sweet custom paintjob. Gonna be similar colour pallet as the Atomic Blonde movie poster. I love my Sentinel A50 I use for work and its a nice wear all day setup. But for home I want something fancy and mine.
First main coat is on. Let it dry and cure overnight. Should dry flat.
Base coat is dry and looks killer! I cant wait to get this thing finished!
So much tape........
Got excited on lunch and started peeling the tape up. This thing is looking F*ckin awesome! Next step is to let everything cure until tomorrow night and then more tape and blue paint layer
Damn. That helm is looking sick.
The next colour coat is down. Gonna let it cure nicely overnight and through most of tomorrow. After the blue sets up nicely I will go through and fix and hide crimes and do all the fancy detail work..... thats going to be painstaking.
Game time! For $800 this is a pretty dang nice machine. Picking up a bottle of argon on friday and be welding that night!
I love how quickly this build moves! I may have missed it, but outside of the SOA what rear lift are you running? I'm still IFS but would like to go up to 35''s and will cut whatever needed.
not SOA in the rear. But I have general spring KC HD pack with nisstec AAL and Calmini shackles
Oh okay, I think I confused the 2-gen u-bolt setup for a SOA. Very cool! It looks to flex really well! Thank you for the info, @Cptpackrat
Finished up my Esab Sentinel A50. Loveing how it turned out!
Building my budget tig table. 1/4" top, 5' long. 3/16" tube frame. Should do nicely for free99 and about an hours worth of work.
90% completed. Just need to weld hooks and my bottle rack off the sides but those will have to wait until I get hone with it.
Tig machine is up and running! Lets get shiatty!
Top is autogenous
Bottom is with filler
Awesome bro, just awesome...
Thats great. I really want to get myself a tig machine.
