    So I go out today thinking I'll get the rear half of my trucks body armor all finished and be done with the project finally...

    Get the drivers side bumper bracket all made and done, trace it onto the plate to make the pass side bracket. Get 2" into the cut and what happens? I run out of Oxy for my torch set /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif. My only day off is Sunday and now I have to wait a whole nother week again /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif.

    Man, I need a plasma cutter...

    Uh, yeah, I've never cut with an arc welder before... But I can imagine it makes one hell of an ugly cut /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    The hardest part of the whole thing was making these, after that it's just beding tube. Only took about an hour to make that one. I knew for sure I was going to be done today but noooooooo...
