Wedding present for a buddy that's a huge skins fan too.

Not nearly as involved as metal working!! Ranchero that's freaking awesome!! I'd love to learn that crap but it seems every new skill comes with a heafty price tag

I don't even like ARs but keep building them. I wanna do a 1911 80% but don't want to invest in the tools!

I think the next step will be making another gauge mount that will reach out to the fairing sides as well. Hoping to have it back on the road by Sunday.
That's a hell of a bike lift! What a great idea.

Thanks, 2200 lbs capacity and is running off an old lawn mower battery. I've had it for @ 20 years but didn't 'need' it until I bought the bike.

Spent the past day fitting the fairing panels and programming a new gauge mount for the bike. Welded the panels to the trim ring today and did some other fitting to get the screen ready to mount.


Took it out between raindrops and verified that the aero works very well up to 75mph with just a 1/2 helmet on. Overall I'm really happy with it.

Made this from scraps. Had to buy Drawer slides $18, TotLok (10) for <$29, Magnets ~ $5 ea. Mirror I cut from an old larger mirror. So about $50. Birch, Maple and Ipe. The back is removable so a box can be cut into the wall if depth is needed (I did not need) there is 1 1/2" of space to lay things flat, more than enough room for Glocks. It's low profile and looks quite concealed! No need to go between studs. Making small shelving for the inside now. All mechanics worked out very smooth, I thought it would be tough, nope. Plastic over mirror since I'm not the selfie type. I getting a lot of interest and might have to make more.

^^ I saw this in person and ironpony's work is incredible. He did a really nice job on the woodwork and the slides are smooth. Works like a charm, too. Nicer than those made by "the other company" and you will be supporting an MDS member.

I may have you make a longer one to hold a long gun for me. We will talk about it.

Let me link up with you after the holidays. Might ask you for a relatively odd request.

Thanks for the plug Chris, nothing against the other guys, they are doing it right. I'm not trying to advertise due to the IP thing, I prefer to follow the rules but am not in the "industry" so at some point I would like to bring up the idea of a non-IP section or a way for non-industry but 2A friendly business to say "hey, don't give your money to "anti"-business' ". This was truly a project for me but ... well is it Bradmac that will often say "everything is for sale"?
Feel free to reach out anytime.

Anytime Sir, all of my work is custom and unusual per request so it may not be too odd.

There is a lot of talent in this forum/group! Love the metal work Ranchero, good stuff.

Not REALLY diy but I’m happy with how this turned out and wasn’t starting a whole new thread just for this.

Gentleman on the neighborhood app was giving this away. It was in pretty decent condition but the door was broken, roof was a little rough, and had spider webs.

I did a brief roof sand then quick satin poly (it is outdoors after all). Fixed and re attached the door, added the address numbers, we bought a pink cactus (no quips), quick wash of the whole thing, and added some battery operated outdoor LED lights with on off switches inside for the kids. My daughter and two other neighborhood boys played inside it for like 3 hours today!

Awesome free score with super minor elbow grease. Not nearly as inventive as chads sons power wheels but she loves it!
