Just like the title says I built my own cage let me know what you guys think and don't mind the zip ties it's just an idea for the flares lol. I wanted to go with a more crawler look
Looks good!may need more bracing
Mine did lol
Sent using lipo power
Mountains cant stop me
they have tried
See that's what I was thinking as well, one on the roof X shape and maybe one going across the door areas but its still in the works though
Very nice. I would also suggest some more bracing. Maybe get creative with some panels as well
crawl-bash-swim. The Summit does it all.
Ok you guys have enticed me. What do you use as solder? are you hand bending the metal rods? Would one of those hand held propane torches work? I am about to update the Funky Gecko
by the way - It looks good.
MAN, Use Common Sense.
Outside? THERE IS NO BOX !
I'm actually not soldering, I'm using a welder a Lincoln electric pro-mig welder and to bend the rods I'm use a brake line bending tool. I've already done some 5ft drops (just the cage) and its held up and along with some down hill tumbles and so far so good. Lol and yea that tire is pretty small but I thought the summit tire would just look ridiculous
What size steel are you using? How did you attach it to the chassis? Maybe some close up piccs.
I'm using 3/16 steel rod and I made the mounts from a 1" flat iron piece
Now I'm still not done so please don't judge me on my welds I still have to go back and grind them down for a smoother finish and add some cross braces and then ill paint it
I like the body lines you went with. Everything is looking great!
Now on a side note........What year is the VW in the background?
SUMMIT, SUMVO, ERBE, EMAXX & REVO 3.3
Very nice work mate Do you think for what you're doing an oxy acetylene torch with braze or thin rods would work better?
Slugs are just naturally aspirated snails
A good start for sure, looks nice.
