Default Finally

Here are some skids I made.

The plastic tubing replaces a roll cage and is much lighter (I saw it the trilordy pirate truck). All the skids were cut out from an aluminum plate and shaped.
Also a wheelie bar that has skateboard bearings as wheels.
I haven't tested none of these, I am waiting on an engine rebuild.
I also have another rollcage that came frome a tool canister thing. I just ziptied it to the bumpers. I'll get some pictures soon. This one I have tested and it worked perfect. I think it is lighter than a factory rollcage.

I used a polisher to shape the curves and a chisel to cut it out. And a drill to nake the holes.
