    Yes this build is looking sick!! Your skill in the metal is awesome and I guess practice does make perfect!!! Keep it coming, getting a lot of inspiration from this build. Will be using your shock towers in some way. Jim.

    Thanx again gang.

    I thought of someting else I could make. Battery box.

    I want to braze some mounts, on to an Altoids box. This way, I'll have a metal box to house my Lipo, in case the Lipo wants to fire-up.

    Question: Do ya'll think that the metal in the Altoids tin, is thick enough to withstand say, a 2000mah lipo fire?

    Something I've wanted to try is to fab a battery box with a "pouch" of sand attached to the underside of the lid. This way, if the battery started to flame up, it would melt the pouch inside the box and put the fire out... hopefully.
    A lipo fire detector.

    Maybe some sort of quick-release on the bat-box. Yoink a pin, and wing the whole box into the crik.

    Just put the Altoids box on the truck...Looks dumb. Next idea...

    Default Side Guards

    Got the side guards done.

    They will stick out, replacing the diamond plate step area behind the front fenders. If I feel so bold as to add on tube fenders, The will just start from the front corners of the guards.

    The mesh was hard to do. Melted one attempt (garbage can). These are the two that made it:
