Default Project Pictures

I do quite a bit of small projects here and there so instead of cluttering up the board with a bunch of threads I decided to merge them all into this one.

Start with a gate I just finished for a friend. 2" sq. tubing frame 3/4" and 1/2" pickets. Driveway is 18' across and the gate is about 8' tall in the center. The stars are 16 ga. Sheet metal about 28" across.

Here is an F250 frame I shortened for another friend of mine. Converting it from a 4 door to a regular cab short bed.

Trailer I finished up yesterday for another friend. New axles, springs, fenders, wheels/tires, toolbox, winch, and ramp. Nothing like polishing a turd

I cut a stub off of one of the old axles so the spare tire could be mounted to the trailer and there would be a spare hub/bearing assembly right there should he ever need them also.

Looks good as always Zach!

Curious as to why he went from crew cab to regular cab... I usually wish I could go the other way...

I totally agree but he is wanting something no one else has and it is going to be his weekend/track toy. Dropped a few hundred pounds off of the truck.

I like the gate, nice work.

You need to prop up the shelf over the window before you have to clean up the oil off the floor.

Good projects there Zach.
The left gate looks a fraction shorter vertically than the right in the last shot, but knowing your attention to detail it must be an optical illusion. Very nice.
The shortened truck has to be way easier to park in spaces allotted at modern parking lots.
Trailer looks good.

Jim, the springy shelf has been holding that clock up against the ceiling for the better part of 3 years and ironically the day after you posted this it popped out and crashed to the ground lol. No more clock and the shelf is back in position.

Thanks for the kind words.

When I welded up the perimeters I had them sitting on one another so I could get the top arch to match up the same. The illusion may be because the gates were opened at different angles due to the automatic openers being un-adjusted at the time.
