D-ring receiver

Well I started making some light tabs and d-ring receivers in my welding class here are some pics of the start of the d-ring receiver. \
The next step is to drill my holes for the pin in the hitch and then one hole for the d-ring. If anyone is intrested will hav a 2 sets of light tabs and can make several more receivers. If intrested just pm me.
