booty fab

I love a good booty fab pic, post up any good ones you have

EDIT - UPDATED 1/28/08 with new Fail Scale

Booty Fab Fail-Scale (BFFS)

Thanks to VonDirt, we now have a scale to score fab work put in here. Keep in mind that a "high-score" here is not good, and the ultimate fail is a BF-5. Points are "awarded" for failing in the following criteria:

1. idea
2. design/engineering
3. fabrication/craftsmanship
4. finish
5. solution (does it work)

To clarify #1 and #2, idea relates to the overall concept and whether it's a good idea, or a bad one. An example would be building a wooden roll cage- bad idea. Design/engineering relates to how much thought was put into it, and how well the idea is executed. An example of this would be the mounting of the coilovers on the prerunner truck below. Good idea to run a linked rear suspension with coilovers, bad design/engineering to put the lower mounting pont at or above the centerline of the lower links.
