Well here is the first installment of the skids that i am now building.  This skid is for the entire engine covering it from front to back.  I have the transmission skid and the transfer/xover tube skid getting ready to be cut this week.  

Enjoy!

I've said it before, but I'll say it again, those look awesome!  The OD is a particularly nice touch.  Are you going to go all the way back and do up a gas tank skid?

And have you come up with a logo to emblazon them with?

Yes I will do all the way back to the gas tank.  The issue is not alot of people buy the fuel tank skid.  Buti will have one built.  As far as the logo yes I have a logo set up amd the production skid will have it cut into it.  I just got back from the cutters and ee also cut my new plate bumper today as well as some skids.  I will be ordering material and will be cutting the transmission and transfer case skids as soon as that is delivered.

i should have everything bent tomorrow for the new bumper...and hopefully start putting it together this weekend.  I will also (if all goes well) have the other skids cut and MAYBE bent and start to build them...so far this week is turning out to be one of those weeks...definitely gonna have to go to the dentist as i shattered a tooth tonight eating dinner.  so the plans may get pushed off....gggrrrrrrrrrr
