    When he asked if I wanted it for 20 I said yes and pulled a twenty from my wallet. One axle has breaks

    Can you weld them back together or is it too badly damaged? ;)

    Coronavirus FID bench.

    I figured a fun and useful project would be to try and build a FID bench using only what I have laying around since we are not supposed to leave home. I'm almost done with it.

    I plan to cut a walking/ MTB trail around my property since most of my local forests have shut down.
    But we're still working (essential business) and super busy. So I many not get to it until it dries up a bit

    Got my front stair treads changed out today and damn what a pain. The way they were built almost caused me tear them down and start over. Had to sawzall the nails on the pickets where they were nailed into the treads. Also the bottom post for the railing was on top of the bottom tread. Cut out around that and got everything back together. Only took me about 4 hours then started pressure washing the house. That’s gonna take me a few days finish pressure washing everything. 532092D1-8EF3-4235-968B-E5800ADF3955.jpeg 46F85DC6-5F78-48B2-9CFD-6A8531EB03EB.jpeg

    Made the wife a bird feeder stand out of 4x4 posts last year so she can watch them from her home office window. The squirrels get on it and knock off the bird feeders and steal the seed.
    I made a barrier today, 42" wide piece of plate should keep them from climbing up the 4x4.

    After finding a local that could patch the plaster and paint everything in our 75 y/o
    fixer-upper (step-sons) at the 1.5 year mark, we've been hitting it pretty hard. Amazing how much it changed the look and got us fired back up (to get him out of our basement)! In the past 7 days... cement backer down in the kitchen, tile done in the "library", all receptacles/outlets swapped & covered and 3 of 8 light fixtures up...

    Got about half the house pressure washed today. I am beat and can’t wait to hopefully finish it tomorrow. Got all the sketchy shit that has to be done from the roof today and survived it to tell the story. Can’t believe how nasty it was once I got started.

    make fun all you want, lol. This is "Crusader"...a $1800 1 Ton rig, 40s, homemade doubler (which mind you has taken ALL the rev limiter I ever thought possible lol), 4 link rear, 3 link front, full hydro steering, cage now, full skid, boat sides, 140K mile original motor/trans, pretty much all built from scrap metal minus the things You "have to" buy...You just can't get any better than $1800 on a so far, very dam capable crawler. Sucks on high rev applications (obviously lol) but crawls up and over anything!! Can't wait to hit some real trails!!!

    When you going to Harlan, Windrock and such? You’ve came a long way, it’s time you started doing some real wheeling

    You really need a tube bender. Just to keep things civil, I am not going to mention what my wife said. As they say, wheel what you got. Better than not wheelin at all, I think.

    I'm trying to plan Harlan in the Fall...that's my dream trip and this rig is built for a place like that
    I have one lol, just didn't feel like taking time to make it fancy. I built a really nice cage for a member here with it but on this pile of scrap metal, figure why bother lol. Plus I like the looks of this, I'm different and I like my rig to be different and look different than any thing else so I like the look of it and believe it or not, so does most everyone that has seen it...

    you have accomplished your goal for sure, congrats! Unfortunately though, I am in the not category, but that is what makes the world go round. Hope to see it on the trail.
