My fat ass feels like cutting the door bars out 6'4 315 fat guy in a little car
Are you going to make it removable? I've done a couple that I'd wished I had after This is a doodad I made for stuff like tunnels. A 4" tube and a 2" tube, clamped together with the sheet between. Two different available radii. In my case, one side is mounted to my slip roll stand now. At one point it was on a 2" receiver.Yeah I just went to Michael's and got poster board. Appreciate the tip brother. I have to cut more floor and driveshaft tunnel out. I've got the front half close. I'm making it big but I like the way it's turning out. I've got good help as well.
I've got to do that for the smaller sections. Actually used a piece of telephone pole I have in the backyard for the big sections.Are you going to make it removable?

Acetylene tanks work good, same with nitrous bottles. I may or may not have used a 5" pole at a basketball court at the high-school when young.I've got to do that for the smaller sections. Actually used a piece of telephone pole I have in the backyard for the big sections.
Yah blew a hose. That's my cousin in the coveralls. He's already had to do another one so luckily he knew what tools to bring.it blew when they were digging a pond. It's pretty remote, so one of those situations where you had better bring all the tools neededDrive motor issue? Those things are great, until they break...lots of stuff buried in a big steel bucket
No metrics on this unit. Just want to say thanks for creating this thread. I'll have to start a thread about this ranch. I didn't realize a boating website had so many like minded people. Hard work on all sorts of projects. I'll sip a coffee and get a sense of accomplishment even if my efforts are small. Thanks for liking postDid you end up finding the 10mm you dropped?
I had no idea how amazed I would be at the talent this place has when I started it. Truly amazingNo metrics on this unit. Just want to say thanks for creating this thread.

Update us with the process on this one. I know cages aren't your favorite but I think it would be pretty cool to understand how the magic happens.

Waiting for light bars and crescent storage box.
In Havasu fashion you're gonna have to add 2 more axles to that trailer . Looking forward to seeing this done.I hung on to this trailer after selling my ski to another inmate… didn’t want to eat the cost of the perm reg etc.
I have a pellet smoker already and a griddle coming my way shortly. Plan is to put both of the “grills” facing opposite on the back end with a prep station, sink, and cooler setup on the front. Something I can take back-and-forth between cave creek and havasu, or tote with me to work events or whatever. I’ve bitched long enough about not having a smoker at the lake so I got a wild hair up my ass to do this.
Getting everything stepped down today…
If anyone needs a skidoo winch, fenders, wheels, or bunks I’ll make a deal on them. Trailer was for a ski that I sold with I think 8 hours on it so it’s all like new..

SBF porn! It's like some weird fettish stuff...damn that could be fun!The owner of the dealership my dad and I worked at got into drag racing and converted his 93 Cobra into his race car. After pouring the coals to it the stock block broke and along came the R Block. His last pass was in 98ish against me where he leaned it out and burned a couple valves, we pulled the motor and had it rebuilt put it back in and in the trailer it went until another employee bought the car and he wanted to put it back to stock. Pops and I ended up getting the engine and the IRS showed up a couple weeks later to the guys house that bought the car and took the car and everything thing else he owned and arrested him for tax evasion.
We never figured out a project for the motor And have decided to sell it. The guy that bought the car kept the intake but let go of the rest.
I have been assisting my pops on hanging everything again since I have the most knowledge of the build, even though that knowledge is very very fuzzy now I was still able to remember how it went.
302 with an R Block forged knife edged crank H-Beam rods and JE pistons. It still has the GT40 heads with work done, the cherry on top is the Vortech Supercharger. I have a 97 Explorer GT40 intake that I set on it. I couldn't find my EGR spacer for the mock up so I shimmed it and it works for pics.

Yes, yes I do. I'm just lacking in the finance department...so the Ranchero sits hibernating in a trailer. Funny, figure it's last pass was in 96, when my buddy turned an 11 with it. That's why it was parked, was supposed to have a cage in those days. So, he started the back half and cage, and it sat for almost 20 years. Then I ended up with it. So, eventuallyDon't you have a 60 something Ranchero or Falcon
Bad assI took these pics at my brother's place in Ennis, MT...the more I looked at them, a light bulb went off in the Ole noggin. I had them printed up on canvas, searched the interweb for the lights, placed the lights and switches accordingly and came up with this
