    Well, not having a tubing bender, chop saw, or a reciprocating saw definately limited my design but I think it turned out alright. Let me know what you think!

    The Pics

    My tools of choice were:

    -angle grinder w/ cutting disks/flap disks/grinding wheel
    -drill
    -BFH
    -Flux core welder

    2 3/8" x 1/4" Tubing that I got for cheap. Its pretty exciting to cut it with a hacksaw... /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Yeah I cut all the tubing with a hacksaw cause I kept going crooked with my cutting disks. The only part I used the grinder for was making the brackets, trimming the frame, and taking the rust off.
