Project Tiregate

Figured I'd try building my own tire gate and save a few bucks. I built it out of 1 3/4" tubing, hinge brackets and bushings came from kartek and the T-handle is from tire gate. Found a cheap tubing notcher from Harbor freight that worked great. I'm almost done, just need to clean up the welds and paint it. Here's a few pics
