    Hey I was once a garage fabber for many years. We all started there and have improved our skills. I hate garage fabbers now because they steal work from me, bastards lol. It's cool keep working hard and your stuff will get better. This isn't rocket science any retard can bend tube and weld it together. Just look everyone one has a welder and a bender or knows someone who does. Hahahaha

    Yes any retard can bend tube and make a weld but quality takes time, patience, and practice. You guys do great work don't undersell it ;) I'm still in my garage fabbing stage :cool:

    Remember kids bad fitment = bad weld

    Not if you have the proper wire thickness, heat, and a filler piece.;)
































    Or you could just cut, fit, and weld the right way the first time like AmericanMOTO does.:cool:
