You know, I have never claimed to be an expert at fabricating. However, looking at some of the crap these people have tried to pass off as "quality" boggles my mind. Definitely makes me feel better about my novice skills, because I at least know "hey now, thats not right, lets do it a little different." How some people have survived to adulthood is beyond me at times.

That stuff is just plain scary, but you gotta start somewhere... And hopefully you don't kill yourself or someone else on the way to getting good...

It's that age old adage, "just because you can, doesn't mean you should."

Reading the "scary steering" page, prompted me to post these.

I took these last year at a local car show.

Amazing that they were smart enough to realize that stabilizer bars were needed.

Man, to think that these people spent hours and hours to build a pile of s#!t. I wonder how many of those trucks ever make it to the road/trail?

first of all...

"You mean people actually pay MORE for a vehicle that HASN'T been completely sodomized by some welder wielding we-todd? Say it isn't so!"

second of all, even though that was full of absurd language it was actually well worded and well executed...kinda like educated insults you could say...very funny page indeed!

I like the stacked spring deal he has going on, its like a progressive spring, he must have welded them together.
