Re: Engine swaping concerns & Fabrication questions
Thanks BCB, we had a brush fire rage thru those hills the week before, so It was quite interesting driving thru all the scorched bush and stuff...
Land for sale, ha, you could probably get twenty acres and a trailer for 20 grand up here man, or less.. Nothing but land to spare.. the town I'm in has 6700 people, and the nearest 'city' is 200 km away and that only has 30,000 people..
And if you like mud, the mud in northern alberta is about as sloppy as you could imagine (when it rains of course).. When I was out the other weekend the guy who was with me had 33" SSR's and he was throwing glops of mud about the size of pint glass.. needless to say the beater got stuck many, many, many times.
I've seen deer all over the place when I'm out exploring, and bear's are in season right now. Black, grizz, whatever you want, just shoot it.
Lots, and lots, and lots of work up here too.. The oil patch is booming, so along with that goes trucking, and all the trades associated with the oil field.. I work at the pulp mill in town here, but I'm back off to the big city at the end of the summer..
There's some more pics of the country, click my sig.
And the bumper has been made!! It's sitting on my porch half painted now (the people in this apparment block must hate me).. Of all the fancy expensive equipment the shop at the mill has, I couldn't find a die grinder and the vertical bandsaw was messed so I couldn't cut my forty-five degree angles or make a nice hole for the reciever tube.. Flame cut and grind was all I could do.. It still turned out quite well for my first bumper, and should be strong as all hell.. I'll have some pics in the next couple days, and should have it installed in the next week.
