    Re: Future Rat

    thanks for the props. I have been pondering a different name. Its not as rat as i originally planned, but still futuristic. It has lots of jag parts and a couple ranger rover parts....

    I couldn't wait to assemble the hole unit.

    cut out the chainguard and tacked it together. I had just enough of that jaguar door skin to do it.

    I changed some hinges on range rover discovery the other day. I took the old hinge and cut it up welded on a few accent pieces drilled and tapped a few holes.
    What purpose do they hold??????

    I got all my holes drilled for the tins to be mounted.

    had a brand new xf jag come in with a frontend hit the other. this emblem had a unnoticable scratch on it so the customer got a new one and i got this one. I took it apart a repainted the background and there you have it. just got a figure out a place for it.

    well well well its been a real busy week between work, drumming in a band and buildingthis bike. I havn't had the time to post. Here comes a blitz of pics from the past week. I started by finishing the tins and riveting one in place. I then made brackets to hang taillight / battery case.

    I mounted the jag emblem on the front door of the canister so that it would double as a handle to access the battery.

    so a put chain on and rolled it outside to get a look at it with these bars on it.
    [​IMG]
    but then i thought about these bars. they are from a privious build. the bullets really set them apart from others i have.

    I was about to rivet on the other tin but then decided to add some l.e.d. light bars a snagged from a range rover taillight that was smasshed up in a crash. I tuzipped tied the m together and to the bike itself was a quick easy addition and looks f-n sweet!

    I started the wiring for the led taillight, led underbody lights and the headlight. the headlight looks neat sittin on there. I will mount it tomorrow once it is wired so i can aim the headlamp before its bolted down forever! I also added a jag emblem to the one tin.
