    Are you building this rig for Rawhide?

    I'm following this one thread closely since I just purchased 1150gs with a DMC car.

    I only went threw 1 grinding disc. I have a really good tubing notcher. No drawing- all out of my head. I have a large band saw for cutting.

    Though it's not a type of design that I could get any use out of I gotta say that's one BEAUTIFUL little hack there, sir! Lots of clever details, well thought out, looks excellent to boot! Congratulations, a job very well done! No doubt you're well entitled to that happy smile of 'DONE!'. :1drink

    12 hours? Ridiculous! It takes me 12 hours to re-arrange my tool chest. :lol3

    Great job, Chris! Does this mean RawHyde is gonna let hackistas ride with them?

    So Chris
    Where's the battery going ? I see the ABS is gone and someone suggested a big one in the stock position. Nice work.DB
