right before we yanked the front axle...tip on the torch was bad so that was a b*tch to get the trackbar mount out...

gonna finish the rest on tuesday. the front axle had 297's so I assume it had abs. no real way of telling since all the wiring and stuff under the hood was gone when we got it (PO decided to get his $$$ out of scrap aluminum and copper...what a douche. but for $160).

 

I payed jake $100 for the front axle and rear axle with 100,000 miles on them and functioning e-brakes (new brakes on it) :brows: that means that Jake's -60 on it so far, and when we take in the scrap metal, he'll be +70 at least

 

whatcha think?

A guy can do some decent work with them if he's good. More fun than cutting out brackets with a sawzall.

 

ever use a plasma cutter :brows:

 

I use one of my grandpa's (he has 3 for his business) regularly. it's very fun. and yes, I've seen my dad do some amazing things with a torch...it's really neat to watch.

Yeah, I've used a plasma a couple times. They're too pricey for me.

 

I'd love to have one, but I have enough debt.

 

oooh but just think of how it could pay for itself? you could get some nice emblems for your wall (like the star from the door on a police cruiser jamminz.gif ), you could make little sculptures, the bead off junk tires on junk rims so you can get more $$$ for scrap, or even go use them as intended....

wow that actually looks sick with everything cut off, almost like a larger old army jeep. I bet it has no structural integrity whatsoever with everything cut off but nothing a roll bar and some reinforcing wouldn't cure. Could make a sick buggy like rig :chillin:

That build is pretty sick.... I know there is a post on PBB some where wher there is nothing left but the "frame rails inside a XJ that shows how weak the uni-bodies are.

 

I have been driving the tan turd with no cage and no back half for the last few months and I havent seen or felt any bad effects from it
