Hauled home a Sidekick. Pro tip: If somebody says you can borrow their ramps, make sure to ask them to ensure they're actually available. It took me a about an hour to load this non running thing up with low tires. I had to jack up the front of the trailer, then use pallets, a come along, and a spare axle shaft to get this thing finaggled on the trailer. It sucked.

I got sick of fixing up the pipe threader just to have someone swap me out for a crappy one.

I’ve been painting all my stuff hold lately, so I thought why not...View attachment 121450
Nice i do the same thing with anything that can be borrowed or confused if its mine, Vise grips, Chains, Clamps, Shovels Etc. I use girly Sea side blue. At my Industrial job i just open my tool box draws and touch up my tools with Safety yellow, sockets wrenches, air tools, everything. I know they are mine by a glance and they are harder to loose i.e. brighter.

I don’t know why I waited so long to get one of these...

This thing is awesome!

Neat. I have made a few of them before. I have a big one similar to yours i built and a smaller one in my arbor press i recently pimped out for them wheel chocks.

Here is my smaller one. Had some round bar as the bottom die but it was too tight for my chocks so i made a 4 sided laminated bottom die with my plasma table.

The 4 little U cut outs between the V's are for a weld bead.

Chromed up with a back stop and bottoming out stops specific for wheel chalk duty now. I had to weld a piece of 1/2 round bar on blade side to get it to not crack the aluminum.

I Really dig this. I have a similar feature in my shop ceiling i need to wall in and i want to do this exact thing. It looks really good man.
Thanks! I've got two end-wall shelves that I keep junk that looks cool to me on, too.



Model A wish bones right?
Close! They're 32's. The ends are going to get chopped up and modified into batwing ends. My coupe is below. As well, a couple inspiration photos. The car will be built as a 60s era street/strip car.

Freaking no, Eden was supposed to leave the gate unlocked for me and he didn't even do that, I managed to get a key and get in back though. Nobody else would answer their phone to open up for me, and I had already moved crap around to do it, so I had no choice but just get it done. Also, if you want the roof rack, you'll have to come take it off before Amber picks it up, otherwise I'm just gonna let her take it lol.

When is she coming to get it?

My TDI samurai has been running crappy, and it seemed to be an issue with compression. So I pulled the head to get it checked out, and replace the gasket. At first I thought I had burnt up a cylinder, but all the walls look pretty good still. I dropped one of the head stud nuts down the oil drain. Somehow, it managed to get wedged in there before dropping all the way into the pan.

The project that started as a few sheets of plywood and a few 2x4's is FINALLY done!

I built these floating shelves for my in-law's new house. This was a fun project, but I'm glad it is done.

On to other projects now...

The pile of materials.
