I use a plethora of tools for cutting; tin snips, Beverly shear, electric shears and nibbler, plasma. On these resi tabs (18ga) I just used the plasma and cleaned up with die grinder, roloc and da sander.

There was certainly more concentration on getting good fitment. I learned many helpful tips and procedures, but mostly took notes, due to the inexperience of some classmates who didn't have a welder at home to practice on, only 8 machines on sight. Excellent opportunity and experience!

Michael Furick is a wealth of knowledge, (and he has a bad ass facility where, like myself, he works alone. Right in the back yard of NASCAR with the likes of Petty enterprises and JR Racing and Kooks Headers all right next door. )He is a very resourceful and avid study of metal working and good practices for turning out a near perfect product. Best of all, I made a new acquaintance between him, Tommy @Tommyschopshop, and a couple other awesome instructors who I feel I can call on for further guidance or a direction to send and receive new work. I hope he offers more events in the future to further expand my skills.

sounds like you got your moneys worth. I assume that is the same Furick that makes and markets his own TIG cups.

Having that nice sheet metal work behind the axle I'm just imagining all your stuff beating the hell out of the bottom. Have you thought about adding a "sacrificial" plate inside so the nice sheet metal doesn't get bent?

There will be both in there, with a divider between, and some 1/4" rubber mat. I had assumed that can happen, (my Rubbermaid packer in the swag trick basket split in 3 directions) . I tend to carry the kitchen sink, so it will be packed tight. In the pic below you can see the tubes supporting it, the back edge will catch on 4 tubes. I plan to put some alum angle length wise in the lid for support as well. This is .060, if it gets destroyed I'll build another, I love sheet work!

Very nice indeed. You can get the spare up and over that? In one of those other pics it looks like the spare is in there pretty good. I know you went over this before and swore a blue streak it wasn't an issue... Since your fab skills are beyond amazing I'll just assume there's no issue getting the tire out with all the gear packed in your new cubby space.

Yes it's certainly tight, not trying to give the impression that its as easy as a tilted spare mount on the back of a buggy by any means... but it's there if I need it, even if it takes an extra minute and a half to get it out. I do have to extend the little resting foot underneath to keep it from lodging the lugs between the frame rails. The pic below is almost as high as it can go, before you start sliding it towards the tailgate, at which point it will slide across the forward edge of the chest. I may open up the inner fenders a bit, but these are 39's, in case of race trim, there will be a 37 in there which will come out quite easily.

In one hand, form out weighed function in this case, because i wanted nothing but c-pillars and fuel fill visible above the bed edge. Also, from a suspension tuning aspect, I wanted all the stationary weight behind the axle, versus the fluctuating mass in the fuel cell being there... to keep the tuning as neutral as possible from an empty tank to full.

Not a thing wrong with milk crates...i use them daily for something! Thanks nasty!

Dimension of box are approx- 36" back/30" front x 10" deep x 12" rear/9" front high. Packed correctly it will house about 100 lbs of tools and spares.

Mattix to kindergarten, Carter to middle school, and Carson was too cool for pics now that he's a senior... big day for the entire family.

Momma is a basket case, but me - I love watching them learn, grow, and mature... even as much as I would like them to stay little boys..

Stripped down for final push to get to Dixie Run. Ready to weld out, plumb, wire, and build interior...3 weeks and counting...don't want to miss another ride, need that rock fix...

Won't be 100% turn key, but will leave me enough little bits to keep me busy through the fall.
