    Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. And behold, very cool. Makes me wish I hadn't sold my '46 Chevy 3/4 ton. Keep on trukin' .........

    Not even bandaids? I have at the very least papertowels and duct tape for incidents that include blood. My blood. Usually happens whenever I pick up a ratchet, or screwdriver, or knife, or.....

    It would make one cool tailgate party wagon.

    Since I'm in a sharing mood, here are a few of my favorites that have found new homes. Again, note the ugly - it builds character.

    My '69 Olds that donated the 455 for the Willys. I sold the carcass to some dude last year for $300. TH400 and 12-bolt posi went with it.


    My CJ-6 complete with removeable Rhino chasing bumper seat a'la the movie, Hatari! It was a Border Patrol rig that hadn't moved in over a decade when I got it. Miss this one.


    Ramcharger's new 300hp Magnum. Freiburger's RC influenced the build quite a bit.

    Although I think mine was cooler. ;D


    My '51 Caddy Superior ambulance. All orig. with 23K miles. 331 2bbl and 3-on-tree.


    Gurney for sleepin' on. The drug/medicine cabinet was even behind the driver seat.


    Siren Worked too.

    Keith - you scare me. I have the same tig in my storage unit under a half inch of dust... it sits next to the lincoln mig. F-bodies, britbikes, jap bikes. Get out of my head!!! :D (I have a feeling you've been at it longer than me though).

    Dummy - I've been looking at a pro-tools bender (especially at the price) as well as their notcher. Thanks for the link to M-tech! You've made the decision even harder.

    Cool the top weld looked very Tig'ish... the the bottom looked very Mig.... I've got both and usually grab the Mig...it's just easier...

    My tig is a little 175 squarewave unit without a cooler... but it works like stink on aluminum and that's why I bought it... now if I just knew how to use it... LOL Been at it 5 yrs with that machine and I absolutely can stick stuff together... pretty ain't going to happen... but welded together it is...

    No TIG. I don't have one and it's gonna be a while until I can afford the TIG setup I want. Until then it's my Hobart 210 amp MIG.

    Thanks. The bender is a regular old manual like a JD2. Mine is an M-Tech Supply (www.mtechsupply.com) model NE-5 that's about 5 or 6 years old. I mostly work in 1.75 OD DOM or 4130 for cages so I went with a 5-1/2 inch CLR die. I also have a 1.5-inch (4.5-inch CLR) and 1-inch (3-inch CLR) die. I like the ability to do tighter bends for stuff like this:




    Notcher is a TN-100 unit from M-Tech. I hook up my Hole Shooter to it. It uses regular bi-metal holesaw bits. Only bummer I've found is it only goes to 50-degrees, although I've fudged it up to almost 60-degrees. Any more than that and I need to break out the cutoff wheel.
