got the grenade at an army surplus store, then just tacked it to a piece of 2x2 and drilled a hole

I'm having a hard time visualizing it but it looks beef so far!!! Before welding it solid, I'd def verify that the winch can come out, that was the first thing I though, it would suck to need to work on it and not be able to get it out!!!

Good job otherwise!

well its welded up. haha. the winch should come out.. if not I have the torch to cut more of the core support away to get it out. Even w/o that on there i have to pull the grill and air shroud to get it out, and it still requires some choice words

I have to use the welder at my buddies house so i'm at the mercy of his parents.
