Haha, thx, it is pretty thick, prolly 1/8" thick. Its good because its lightweight and strong. My brother's rail has a thick steel diamond plate floor and its heavy.

I really like the way this rail looks without the body panels, im curious to see if it looks better or worse with them on.
Anyways great build.

What type of front end is that? I'm new to rails and i like the dual stabilizers.


edit: Replied before I got past page one. DOH. So, uh, cool rail! I never read the whole thread, but I did this time! I was hoping to see you clean up those wheels as it is something I need to do, too. Oh well. Good replacements. Sad

Yea I didn't feel like using the crusty front wheels. And Im not even crazy about the rears either. I hate steel wagon wheels, so we'll see what happens with them.

Finally got the motor in the rail. I think Im gonna need to change the fuel pump because when I ran it it, it didn't suck up the gas out of the can. Might relocate the oil filters b/c they hit up against the aircleaner. The left aircleaner is pretty close to the left bar too Confused

Haha, that's a good question..Im not sure to be honest..I may be switching to a single filter mount b/c I need the space.
