    Yep, its Durabak'd and Herculined and has been spray painted over with numerous coats of Rustoleum and Krylon gloss black. It's dang tough and pretty cheap. The inside is rhino'd. I couldn't afford the outside done in rhino. Thanks for the complements. Oh, and the photos were taken by a student of mine (i'm an English teacher). He's an aspiring photographer and he took em' for fun.

    To Grim...
    I get a lot of funny looks from other teachers at the highschool. Yeah, I won't ever drive a small SUV like they do but the students really like it. Oh, and they can't key it if they get mad at me.
    As far as the fab work... I fabricate like a blind monkey. I'm slowly learning to weld but I would never trust my welding skills on a daily driver's suspension componentry. I farm it out to Randy ( www.randyellisdesign.com ) I'm always pleased with his work and he always works me a good price.

    Thanks,
    I was wanting that "Alumiflex" bending tie-rod stuff but Randy at R.E.D fabrication said he could get the same stuff for cheaper. He explained that it is way lighter than a steel counterpart and would handle all types of abuse (he knows abuse check out his website www.randyellisdesign.com ). It's .100 Aluminum 6061 T-6 solid. It looks cool and I can't wait to see how well it works. Once again, thanks for the complements. I need em' every time I get into another project... right now i'm going to be starting a remote starter solenoid and remote starter switch.
