New Headache rack

I built another headache rack this week for a guy with a snowplow business. The removable top rack is for a Whelen 9m edge strobe light and if the light is not on he wanted two removable bars for a ladder. It also has a removable center section for the sliding glass window and expanded metal across the back. I am sending this to a local bed liner shop next week for spray. The shop says they can do a very smooth finish in gloss black. All of this was at the customers request. I still have to cap the ends on the strobe rack. What do you guys think.

Re: New Headache rack

Looks good, how do you get the flat plate to tapper down on the top?

If your talking about the side pieces, they are sheared 6" at the bottom and
4" at the top. Then I bend them to match and weld a 4" wide piece across the top to tie them together.

Re: New Headache rack

Do you have a shear? I have been looking at your headache racks and getting my ideas from them! Looks good. Does it make it a PITA to see out of the rear window with that expanded in there, is that just #9?

I just put that rack up on the truck this afternoon to send a pic to the guy that I am building it for. I did not even look out the back, but I will now. I dont think it will restrict the view much though.

Re: New Headache rack

Put the rack back on and the expanded metal does not restrict the visibility very much.
