    I guess i dont have pictures of the finished product only videos.

    I'd consider making these as a kit, the frame work anyways, then people just bolt it together and add their own 4x8 sheets of wood to keep shipping down.

    also gonna start on a 4x8 or maybe a 5x10 cnc machine this winter, so i can use my plasma and a router on it, make it out of metal, see how money goes this fall though.

    A couple pullers I have made, in the midst of building a compressor and an axle stand and engine hoist. Wanna make a test stand soon. Also I wanna make a pipe bender for exhaust.

    Very creative ideas. I could use a control arm bushing tool now. They are giving me hell going in
