1. Repair the wind tunnel of a hole in your pants. Get a welding spark in there and you'll be doing the gay leprechaun dance.

2. Oh the joys of welding with a stick machine.

3. Looks beef but I'd reinforce it from the sides to the frame as well.

4. Take it back off and cut a hole in the middle and mount a hitch receiver in it for a recovery point after you do #3.

5. Nice work thus far.

You never get to walk on the water if you don't first step out of the boat.

take your time and do it right

also for grinding use the flapper discs, they leave a smoother more finished look.

i also made some bracing for the side pieces out of some 1.5" square tubing.
i know its not the best angle for support but thats all i had to work with becouse my frame mounts were in the way. but its plenty stout, i doubt i even needed it.
