This thread will be dedicated to those projects you find that have the worst fabrication or engineering.

I recommend that you do not post up one of your own projects. And if one of your projects pops up, do yourself a favor and don't take credit for it.


I will get this thing started:

You are NOT a real fabricator when you can't make 2 control arms the same length.

You are NOT a real fabricator when you add the extra trailer lights to the Lincoln.

You are NOT a real fabricator when you can only find 2 4x4s to hold the truck up.

That first one looks like late 60s, or 70s GM 4 link arms (common on mid-fullsize cars like Chevelle, Lemans/GTO, etc.) that someone tried to make adjustable. Please god, I hope that was only for static testing geometry...
