Metal Shop.

Alright well second semester has been going on for about a week and a half now and i managed to keep my self busy by working on my traction beams by sanding the sh!tty rust off and painting everything. Now im done and im out things to do untill the snow clears up so i can get under the truck for measurements. Can anyone give me any ideas on what i could do for my truck while i have that class? I was thinking skidplates, rock sliders, and bumpers. But i can only do the bumpers cause thats the only thing i can measuremnt for and not freeze my self to death. I dont wanna get into anything that big just yet, so can anyone give me some ideas?

You drive your truck down to the local garage for an oil change. While it's on the lift you get your measurements for the other things you want to do in their nice warm garage. :-)

Alright I came up with the sweetest idea ever for the d35. I dont think it has been thought before so I think its gonna be hit. Lets just say it makes your life A TON easier to swap gears or do any kind of work. it requires 1/8" thick steel and thats all im telling you guys.
