    fabrication pics. post you're best and worst moments

    I did not realize this part of the fourm was here.... Let's have some fun!

    As stated in the title..... lets see what what you got!
    Rules:
    Lets keep the clowning to a minimum and try to keep it to "constructive criticism".(I know how some of you guys are..)
    It must be garage/automotive related.
    Example: Diy tools to roll cages, brackets, manifolds, camera holders, stereo kick pannels, amp boards. Just something you had to build .


    Ooh! you'r f**kin crazy if i am starting this out!

    My first attempt at anything flasher than a sub box or a bracket , my itbs and trumpets.
    Made the trumpets by turning up a former on the lathe at work and used some 2 inch exhaust tube for the trumpets.
    formed the flare by forcing in former into the pipe with a 6 inch bench vice.
    some panel steel flanges and she's good.
    adaptor manifold is the cut down b20a inlet with a made by me 12mm adaptor plate welded on and machined flat

    I actually got a lot done before she went in for this last one, and while she was recovering in the hospital, I was creating wiring diagrams, dash is in, everything tested, it all works, shit ton of wiring back there, I have the tray that fits under the glovebox area done, that holds the MSD and bell crank for the choke cables, I tested the choke mechanism, it all works, all the plastic pieces from the dash back are done and almost ready to reinstall, everything plugs in with molex plugs, so it's easy to remove for the carpet, sunvisors are done, overhead console is done, voice module is installed and tested, and works, getting ready to put in the methanol pump, when I get my tax returns this year, we are going to try to finally get the carbs done.

    I don't remember what I was working on but for some reason I needed a small sheet metal brake. So I threw one of these together. Not the best but it did what I needed.

    Re: fabrication pics. post you're best and worst moments

    Likely not ^ its a super rare 88 dodge daytona turbo z hood flipped upside down and used as a fiberglass mold then cut out to fit and made a second mold to press abs liquid plastic into fasteners that match Boeing 707 passenger latrine mirror bezels and screws that came from the actual practice crash site of Evel Knevil's 1st ever failed GC jump...still need to connect the Shelby rear directionals module that will fire up amber #194 bulbs mounted in a section cut out of the dash of a 78 Ford Fairmont. Jk

    89T is that a portable gasoline tank on top of the welder ? Kinda like to know where you got that, they use those on some club car vehicles but in 6 gal, that looks more like about 2.5, marine?

    friend of mine gave me my hood scoop, I know it's really old, someone had it on the hood of a mustang that he had, and it came from someone else, it's also fiberglass, I had to repair all the mounting points on it

    I was a whore before it was cool.

    It was a culmination of all post from the different places 3geez has been. While other members started fresh each time the board moved, some of us had the count adjusted to reflect our past numbers. I don't know if it was really 88,000 in total but I did have a lot, I was a very active member Once.

    Yamaha Razz Muffler Mod
    In keeping with it's Japanese Heritage.



    Muffler Chamber Removed (RIGHT), end cap with 4 holes drilled in it for exhaust (LEFT).


    New shortened muffler, minus chamber/resonator.
    Added an ear to the left side that mimicked the shape of the cutout in the bracket on the right.
