    I love the way you took this frame from hidden to ridden so quickly. It has come together in an authentic dirty rat use whatchyagot fashion. Respect the rust.:cool2:

    I knew I wanted a tank but wasn't sure how I was going to do it when I got an Idea to use a piece of steel framing track . So I stopped by Home depot bought a piece of track and headed of to a friends who works steel frame . this is what we have so far 20150320_164626.jpg 20150320_170052.jpg 20150320_170105.jpg 20150320_174149.jpg

    When all else fails go buy the big guns . I was having trouble with the regular hand pull rivet guns bought two different ones and only got about 9 rivets in the tank . Now I'm going hydraulic pneumatic hopefully this works still have a couple more things I would like to do before THE END:banghead: 100_2326.JPG

    Your build turned out awesome! Video sounds cool, I'd like to get one to take videos of our horses but it might spook 'em.

    RatRod runs that one, not sure if there are any changes this year, but normally the standard rules same as WBO except for maximum one entry per member.
    Usually runs till first week of August.

    Luke.
