I would suggested sending a PM (private message here on the forum) to MrCustomSteel. He could field that question the best.

Hey guy's--
Very nice work--exceptional welds and layout--
Being totally understanding to others situation----it's like my dad always told us when we were growing up-and i use this saying on all my business cards to this day directly under the name of my company--
If you have to ask what it cost
You can't afford it---
Very simply stated
Andi will say that sometimes i have found my self swallowing rather hard--but that's life--After a couple of weeks the pain will be gone---
To quote the Nike Slogan----JUST DO IT---if u enjoy it--you can't take it with u--

Nice job and congratulations

Thanks vieux temps for the kind words. Thanks AJP for the inquiry and Stel for the referral. AJP I sent you a PM.

As Stel and Shannon/Vexter1 will tell you I am very open to helping you keep cost down but I am SLOW! I am not a full time pitbuilder. I just love making them along with my other ventures and responsibilities.

I got a couple of good days in since Stel stopped by. Sorry my camera is not as good as his.

Got the stacks on.


I decided to give the Jambo style lower exhaust duct platform a try to see how it works.


Got the firebox on




Got the vertical mounted and piped.






Bottom of the vertical 4"x5" inlet.


Onward through the fog!

You must know somebody down there because they wanted $400 +tax for 3 tires and wheels. I got mine for $250 +tax.
