Verrrry nice Bill. And this completes the rattle can refit.

Hey, I was not knocking your buggy.

In the 70's, when I was desert racing and dune crashing, I had to flat tow most of my junk 'cause I was towing with a VW bus and mini pickup and tent camping.(ain't never gonna do that again)

By the end of the lean times, I had a drive on rack on my 1 ton pickup and an enclosed , 2 rail trailer that doubled as a shop / AC bedroom, in Glamis.

The kids were still "convenient carry size" but SWMBO was not impressed with the Trailblazer dinner table stand and fold down bunks.(might have been what started my foray into big boats, queen size beds and 4 digit payments...)

Anywhoo, enjoy the fruits of your labor, you earned it.

A 160 MPH drive, down a 2 lane blacktop, all by yourself, is NOT anti-social behaviour... I drag race because football, baseball, and golf only need ONE ball. Paul.

What I really need to know is, WHEN DOES THE SHOOTING START?

When i ran the shop for an Airco distributer (1980-1990) the Dipstick was a hot seller.
I had one in the shop,with long leads for stick welding and a 15 foot mig gun,back then they sold everybody a tweco 400amp mig gun heavy as hell.
I had a high freq box on mine too,scratch start,it worked pretty good.
I had a spool gun too,that old dip stick did a good job,i had one at home too.
Good machine.
