    a little something I made today. (56K dont bother!)

    Its only a temporary solution (until it gets ripped off cos its only a few cms of the ground )

    this is NOT a road car

    Heres what I did

    these welds arent very tidy as the metal here is very thin
    my welder+thin metal = fail
