    Locked in

    So after a few welds and moving around a bit. This lock failed like CHINA always does.



    So I upgraded to this



    And I'm going to install a lock here

    Thanks Nick for the comment.

    I really happy about this thing. It's nice to be able to put my ideas down on paper and put them to work in real life. I'll see about adding a few more details and finishing up what I can with out having Nicks RRC with his Rovertym rear bumper.

    I was playing around with some ideas while I had this out the other day.

    It fit nice.

    Placing the lock through this.

    I'm going to cut the white line later but welded the one half to the latch.

    Showing off the welds here

    Nice work. Great bead on those welds! I wish I had that ability.

    Get some paint onto it before it rusts. Powder coat or bed liner coat looks great.

    I appreciate the comments. I'm trying to get better as I go. It's really all about the motivation. Practice too. As far as paint goes I'll wait to see what my buddy wants first. The bed liner is great but it makes things really hard later to fix. Try welding on plastic. Not fun. I'm not worried abut rust yet. I use a wire wheel.
