I stopped by today to see how WB and Jeff were coming along with Jeff's (H8monday) rig... I snapped a few pics while I was there.

Bill Rowlette (owner of WELDER BILL'T, MFG.), and commonly referred to as "Welder Boy", is designing and fabbing the entire project. He has been great to work with, he has listened to my input, and is fabricating the design around my driving style(if you can call anything about my driving,"Style" ).
The entire cage is Tig welded, and his welding skills are awsome.
Im used to beauty grinding most of my welds, then covering them with a thick coating of primer and paint.
Bills welds are like artwork, I almost want to clear coat it and forget about paint.
The general workmanship looks nice, but not to be critical, some of the landing points of various pieces of tube look questionable to me personally. There seems to be a number of tubes that land not in line with other tubes creating what I would believe to be some structural weaknesses. I am not saying it wouldn't survive a roll, but some minor differences in design it seems like could make some significant improvements in strength. Just my 2 cents, looks nice in workmanship though!
