Thanks Masterman...

Well i didn't get my tubes bent today...here's what I have left to get bent and welded on...my rough template

i do still want to finish these bars before I get back to the 9-5. tomorrow's my last off day so i'll be getting these pieces and welding.

So today I did the extra brackets for my shocks...

With the McGyver'd go kart rear cut off, i finally can get a good idea of the overall height and stance of my mini bridging vehicle. about 9 1/2 inch ground clearance.

Hey Conrad looking real good. I like what T-Man said about you now making tables and tools to make the work more efficient. Just one little sugestion and then I'll stop. It looks like there is a bushing around the bolt that passes throuh the middle shock mount. I might suggest you weld that bushing to the center brace to keep the bolt from deflecting from the movement of the shocks. That's it.....Love the pics....BWD

Yeah Conrad, I agree with Shaggy you have to change the "rookie" builder name cause you are going to intimidate some of the real rookie builders checking out the site.......hehehehe. Their going to think if this guy is a rookie what chance do I have? At the very minimum lets say "Journeyman Builder".....Love the pics.....BWD
