recommended by our March winner...

How about vehicles utilizing the most innovative mods/upgrades? The members here have some crazy fabrication skills. Always nice to see stuff like that being showcased.
So, if you have pix of you doing some furious cutting/welding/etc. , let's see them. Maybe a little vague but you get the idea.

Go!

I'll run entries for 4 days or until we have 8-10 entries more or less.

...and I know this was supposed to get posted Saturday night when I got back. Putting out fires since then basically. Ugh.)

i got the winning video but too bad it wasn't recorded. There is no one more furious than me when a welding job doesn't turn out and then I turn in a madman with the grinder. The reason why there are no recordings is no one will get close enough to shoot one.... :popcorn:

My type of fabrication usually involves a lathe or a mill!

Such as
Welding 7.5 axle tubes onto an 8.5 and fabbing an UCA bracket

I'll stop there. Literally a good portion of the reason I build cars is just to play around with fab work. :)

06 LS into a beater 87 el camino I'm using as a test bed. then when I get all the things figured out, it will go into my white 85.
so far its been amazing, fast and great mileage. been driving it for a couple weeks now.
most expensive thing besides the wrecked $1200 06 chevy 1/2 ton silverado was the $200 driveshaft shortening .everything else was $20 to $50
it just dropped into place moving the motor mounts back into the next set of holes.
stock intake, stock truck pan and all the a/c parts. stock truck fuel pump into the modified stock el camino tank, with the stock fuel sending unit mounted to the truck fuel pump housing. no return line or pressure regulator. even got the cruise to work with stock turn signal lever.
