The food industry does some really nice hygienic stainless work too.......it all comes together now. I have a buddy that builds breweries by day and some beautiful hot rods by night.

Thank you. We've been running power cable to the front and rear, but nothing much to look at. We are also in the middle of another LAV-150 rework for a Florida sheriff. Here's a link if you'd like to see it.

This thing kicks so much ass you'll have to import asses from China to meet demand. The other LAV is sweet too; I see there you're welding stainless brackets onto the hull - which is some sort of armour plate. Do those two mix?

Thank you very much!
Although it is no substitute for armor plate, many types of stainless alloys works great for brackets and such. There are even cases where stainless steel welding rod is recommended for many assembly and repair procedures where armor plate is concerned.

I have the brake lines ran and the system filled with DOT5 fluid, and now I'm working on the mount for the FLIR. The inside set of lines will be taken out using a plasma cutter.

Ok, first off

I'm so fucking jealous that you have a personal FLIR unit to mount in your personal APC.

so for that


secondly,
How effective is a FLIR going to be on the undead?

Thanks 87manche
As long as the undead is either colder or warmer than their surroundings, I can still pick them out...if nothing else it may help me figure out who is who

Seriously, this needs to run over a dictator style limo at a good clip or this build is a failure

Holy crap. This is the coolest thing I have ever seen with the word "zombie" in it. Nice work. I'm a little jealous about how accessible that engine is.

Is this a rig where you have to wear hearing protection while you operate it?

According to the ratios, I should be running 2670 RPMs at 70 MPH...so it should be able to roll that fast

Thank you, and I hope the sound deadening measures we're planning keeps us from having to wear hearing protection, but we'll see.

Won't you need them to minimize the sound the zombies will make when you are running over them?

That would take all the fun out of it

If anyone caught "Insane or Inspired?" on the SyFy Channel Friday 06-15, you would have seen one of our videos with our camo track featured. Here's the full episode and we're at #16 on the countdown or you can fast forward to 15:50
