    wow, high praise :D

    I don't have a battery isolator, although now you've mentioned it it might be a good idea...

    because my mig is being a stuck up lil’ bish :laughing:

    It doesn’t behave at low current so I went with the tig, it also means I don’t have to grind away a lifetime of mig snob :welder:

    it’s a crab :laughing:

    It’s just the back end being redone as I was never truly happy with what I’d done previously, mostly because the exhaust exit on the side was going to change

    Looks really good, but wasn’t it supposed to be a sleeper?

    To be fair I’ve gone from 2 silver pipes to 1 recessed tip on show. And there’s going to be a side skirt on top of there too so it should “subtle” it right out when it’s done.

    the noise is going to give it away more than anything lol
