Discussion in 'BUILD OFF 13 BUILD JOURNALS' started by outskirtscustoms, May 31, 2018.

  1. Well I'm back! Been really busy as of late with my job running the parts store 40 hours a week, restoring my chevy truck which is now coming together while being driven daily. And my time is freeing up. So i am thinking of a build modern interpretation of an oldschool bobber but with attitude. Pucked up this 26x3 mountain bike at a pawn shop pretty cheap so here we go. 20180531_120945.jpg 20180531_120931.jpg

  7. Yeah i was fine, the Hyundai not so much. Got my insurance settlement and doing the work myself im going to save a bunch of money. Enough so that i bought another truck. Cost me $300 and a pistol. (It was a friend) so i got a 1981 GMC C1500 pickup with a straight 6 2wd. Going to be nice saving fuel in the buzzin' half dozen. Been really thinking of building it rat style. Patch the floor with old license plates, cover the seat with a Mexican blanket, flat black, red rims, whitewalls, drop it low, find an intake that holds 3 single barrel carbs, already has dual exhaust, then add some red and white pinstripe

  13. Ok so progress... There is none. But my truck looks sweet now... Building my first rat rod. I'll probably procrastinate till the last week then jam something together last minute. 20180703_181917.jpg 20180703_184541.jpg 20180703_142122.jpg

  16. Refurbished my hub caps today for the rat rod. Truck needs a few more coats but it's a rat rod so it doesn't need to be perfect. 20180706_112207.jpg 20180706_112200.jpg

  18. Got some painting done on the truck. Top is painted, hub caps all re-done, now it's time to start on the matching bike build to go in the back. 20180708_103732.jpg 20180708_103723.jpg 20180708_103857.jpg 20180708_103837.jpg

  19. Also found out how to get my pictures right side up, the orientation of the phone when the photo is taken was causing it. Flipped the phone and the pics came out right.

    Love the rat truck
    The seats in the back remind me of the old Subaru Brats
