    $31.00 Bush Bar!

    So i wanted to fab up a bush bar with some more lights.
    I picked up that steel tubing that they use for underground wiring, its stronger than i thought.

    So here it is, i was going to post step by step stuff, but once we got going it had to be done! i'm sure everyone understands lol
    this was my first time ever welding, its harder than it looks but found it funnn my buddy who helped did some of it, then my dad being a steam/pipe fitter was all over doing the welding liek a dirty shirt.

    weldng is the shit, i need to get one this summer.... what do you prefer? mig or stick?

    before we started welding



    after we welded the initial bars



    1/2" steel plating for the mounts which actually had to be extended cause it was a tad too short



    the bush bar is welded together and ready for paint



    painted up



    the bush bar is done and the lights are all wired to a sweet killswitch covered toggle switch under the heater knobs. i still need to get some caps on the ends of the top bar, the electric tape there is holding in some wiring



    cheers

    you can use a frost plug to cap the ends,measure the pipe i.d. and buy a plug the same diameter .

    Cap the ends, and paint it blue. Goodness, you stole that from a Fire truck!

    Get yourself a Mig. Much easier to get the welds down.

    Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?
