    Dammit!
    I have only a few things to finish but I don't have the tools or the cash to pay someone to do the work.

    I need to finish up some rear protection for the fuel cell, weld in my rocker protection, mount my hood and rear sheet metal.

    I need access to a welder, bender, notcher darnit. I have the knowledge to use these tools (Wizard School of Fabrication grad) but I don't own any of the tools.
    It's freaking depressing. My truck runs but just isn't done yet.
    Aw well I had to vent.:doah:

    yeah, it was a good time learning all types of stuff and getting to use pretty much every name brand bender and every type of notcher. I know the tools I want to own, that's for sure. As far as knowledge...I'm still learning. I did like that we got to build a-arms and stuff though. For $6000 the price was a bit steep and I wish we could have wasted more materials.:D Practiced TIG and MiG Here are some pics of some progress...

    Hey Juan, Skullhead says hi. And he wants to know if you still have that GF you brought over to the shop before you left for CR... If not, he wants her # :haha:
