    How this silicon bronze weld holding up? I'm always concerned about my welding.

    No worries. The whole thing seems awesome. I’m very happy with the “completed” rig.

    Installed the new 3rd brake light. Not as aesthetically pleasing as the old one, but throws better light.

    Spent a fair amount of time building a new fab table. I’m spoiled from my last shop having all the tools and work surfaces. My home garage requires that I be creative. IMG_0513.jpg

    I also swapped out the chop saw for a bench top band saw from WEN. It’s really amazing.

    I received my sidecar shock from Klaus.
    Unfortunately, the shock wasn’t a straight swap with the old hagon. I decided to modify my bell crank to accept the new shock.
