9am works for me.

Grinding wheels would be a good idea and maybe a few cutoff wheels would be good. I will have my chopsaw as well.
I got a few of those and assorted other tools. Looking forward to getting this done.

You're welcome Mark! As I said earlier we needed to do something to yours for a change. Good times today fellas, sorry I was a little slow out of the gate. I will put some photos up tomorrow. Supermotors was incredibly slow tonight.

Thanks again everyone for the help and Rick for putting this together. Good day and Rick let us know when you are ready to put your sliders on.

I was able to get the Front bumper put on my bronco and it looks great.
Some pictures:

Welding on my broken exhaust hanger:

there were so many people. we ended up starting at 1140 and finished at 4 even. I've never had so many cramps...my thighs locked up and my calves were burning. Finished though. It definately was tough. The chernobyl dumpster full of ice water was brutal.



Josh-damn that bumper looks good bro.

That's a nice shop...who's is it?

Betty WILL run....

Thanks man, I want to say it's Rick's father in laws shop. I could be wrong it was the first time i had been there.




Oh and a big thanks to Josh (jfritts) with all the welding and ideas!

we hope the shop is going to be EAST COAST BRONCO MAFIA's shop/ clubhouse. the nice thing is its huge, has lift, any tool you should ever need, and theres a test site behind the shop to wheel in. i think we can make this happen if we help get it cleaned up.

umm hell yes. i wouldn't mind taking a trip down there to spruce the place up. That sounds like an awesome idea.

testing grounds are also nice :-P seeing that the most offroading i've done was with my old ranger when i swerved to miss a deer. lol

shop owner is Howard, Sr....rick's father in law. it's def a sweet set-up, we should def make it our club HQ if howard will allow it. another cool thing about it, is that we could possibly shoot out there! (all depending on permission of course)

there were a ton of people! funny you started right at the time we finished. we started at 820 and finished at 1140. our group of 5 firefighters ran it in full suits! i am dead...calves are crazy sore!

Pictures are here, supermotors was ssssllllllloooooooooowwwwwwwww.................... .......................................

Here is what we started with.

Here is the shop we worked at, wifes daddy's shop. This place has lots of elbow room to say the least.

Just need to get ourselves a sign or something to put above the door.

It was a little slow out of the gate on the welding. We had to change the recpetical for Fritts' welder. Measured, cut and then we.............................






Got both sides of Marks mounted. They are about 90% done I believe. Gotta get some braces tacked in to support the outer bar. Then maybe a step fabed up.
