i have a plasma cutter, chop saw, notcher, 48" break, shear, friends benders to borrow, welder, chop saw (miter metal saw) other fun resources and big equiptment. also have all of my magnetic levels, angle finders, magnetic tube holders, other tube holders i built, and all my mechanics tools from when i was a mechanic. oh have a air compressor too ;) lol pretty basic garage (3 years of tools gathering to build my own roll cages)

as for the just start bending and building..... i did that with the xj cage and it didnt come out quiet how we expected... main hoop is liveable but not as wide as i wanted. and i really like cad and get really bored at work so y not :D

hopefully start bending by mid november, just so everyone has a timeline for expectation.

Looks fun, always nice collecting parts. Just sucks sometimes how long it takes to start putting those parts into something.......








I find the misspelling of "knowledge" ironic

I can't say for Bones as I haven't met him, but the other four I am happy to say are friends of mine and GREAT PEOPLE!!!

Get your rig ready and bring it to Canada for some good wheeling!
