Woulda worked if I wasn't a complete fucktard when I tack welded it... I only did one side then had a brain fart. And now it's warped.

Yes I did and it would have been just fine but as stated prior I didn't tack the conglomeration correctly and now I have another thing to add to our Drummond Island Spring Run trophys


Full spool showed up yesterday as well as hydro assist kit

Got a start on the cage tonight.








Also started getting the body lift out but looks like the front 1/2 of the frame is getting hacked off now also as it's in the way of the radiator and other crap.
