    Use a dowel rod to be a guide to curve the mat. Make sure to apply a shit-ton of resin. The pain in the ass part is sanding it down, applying bondo and metalglaze. Hell, you should make a Satoshi grill!

    I'll be a year behind since I have basic and AIT next summer. But Im looking at a year at BSC (Bismarck State College) to get some more welding certs. and get rid of some of my generals. Then its 4 years at UND (University of ND). Hell, I can pretty much go to college where ever I feel, since the govt. is paying for it!!! haha

    Im not big at all.6ft 155lbs But im scoring roughly a 280 out of 300 on my APFT.
    We do a 2/2/2. 2min of pushups, 2min of situps and 2mile run. But to qualify for basic i just need to pass the 1/1/1. which is a 1min and 1 mile. I pass both without ever working out, its pretty easy.
