Im sure your bed would be a bit too much for me to handle anyways <img src="https://powerstrokenation.com/forums/images/smilies/handbang.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" class="inlineimg" />

Looks kinda cool, lacking some key features the Bradfords have that I really want. It doesn't help im about as far away from NY as you can get in the lower 48...
Where are you from?

Re: 6.0 In an OBS build!

Yea, hopefully finish what I started a few weeks back with the firewall. For some reason people like to move on long weekends, so I'll be doing other things, but If I do touch it I will be getting help from a friend to maybe speed things up.

Shoulda bought a Cummins.

Re: 6.0 In an OBS build!

Got a bit more done today. Been so busy and tired I actually can't wait to not work on this tomorrow.

After much deliberation going back and forth considering how much of a pain in the rear I want to make this, I have decided, along with the help of a friend and co-worker that we are going to fiberglass the empty spaces, opposed to welding it all and spending hours cutting out little filler plates and what not. If I had access to more metal forming tools that would be a different story.

So, we are using your standard fiberglass mats/resin combo to finish this nightmare. I am confident it will hold up fine. The pictures below are just of a test area and the first layer, but after we add several more layers of mat and resin it should be very stout. Glad to be making some headway on this after months of nothing.
