    well screw it... i just purchased a new lock right to make it all happen in a decent amount of time. built the rear upper link last night and should have the rear cycled and permanently welded up by this saturday i hope. anyone in san diego area that would like to hang out, help out, and learn is welcome to help out if i have a good vibe about you.

    for sure man. well at least you guys that are in az and shit can meet up with us in ocotillo for the testing and tuning stage of the truck. will be a blast. sadly sorry but no one will be riding in this truck with me for a long time. the legal aspect of being sued by someone if something goes wrong while they are in it is not what i want to deal with. once i find a legal remedy to that problem (i.e. waiver (wont hold in court), release of liability contract, etc) i will know more on how to go about letting people ride with me.

    haha. initially i thought i could save time and money by picking up a set of almost complete arms. got them home, and actually got to inspect them and they were shot. no penetration mig welds lining a bunch of mild plate and some box steel. so i built a jig to correct everything and by the time i was done you have what you are looking at. there is less than 4 inches of the original material still attached to those. i ended up completely gusseting the internals, fully tig'ed them together then plated with 1/8 cold rolled sheet also tig welded. so yes... they were built by me by the end of it all hahaha.
