Apologies if you've seen this on other forums, but anyway.

 

I MADE TUBS

So, a good friend of mine asked me if i could weld in tubs he was going to buy from some dude that makes them interstate, He said "I like them because of the cool pattern">

 

This ofcorse translated in my head as "bet you cant hand make cool tubs"

 

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED...

He had no idea what he wanted so, but knew if he would like them when he saw it. So it design was left up to me.

Overall size is pretty good. They don't dominate the engine bay at all.

Thanks Fellas,

Yea my mate wanted them to kinda look OEM... and I wont take credit for the size, that was his idea... We put the biggest wheels he would ever run on, lowered the car more than he would ever lower it and calculated the perfect sizes!!!!
