    Heres a backrack that I built for my truck. The picture makes the logo look a little more squished together than it really is. What do ya guys think?

    Couldnt tell ya how long, as I bought the steel and had it sitting around for a while and worked on it off and on. But Id say it took maybe 2-3 hours to measure, cut and layout the peices, and maybe two hours with the arc welder, then a few hours grinding welds down and sanding some surface rust, then I spent a few evenings painting.



    Cost, I have about $60 in steel, had to buy a pack of electrodes for the welder and some grinding blades, and then some paint.
