Metal will mostlyl be re-used building suplies. Mainly 1/2" I-beem and 2"x2"X1.4" Square tubing.
The pans are done... now it's all based on funding... Might get some high school students to cut the pieces and take it to a shop to weld it up. Might even just pay my buddies dad to use his a/o set-up to cut them, then clean them up and bring it to a shop to be welded up.
Thoughts on design?
Basically a tutbed main frame with plates top and bottom. the bottom plate will go down a bit more and connect to the skid plate.
I plan to do a rear with just a simple box design.
Mainly be using 1/4" to keep it on the lighter side. Also where the winch sits would be a little more built out.... as you can see it's a very rough showing of it.
