Ok guys, this is my latest project. My old wink panoramic mirror was warping badly from the sun, so I made a new one out of stainless steel. Probably the single nicest thing on my car, sadly...










Tell me what you guys think. I'll still be replacing the bolts with some nicer ones.

That's pretty trick, though it looks heavy. If I can't get my plastic jobber tucked up tight enough, I may have to steal parts of your idea.

Looks strong and functional, great looking welds. Not the first thing I'd choose to fabricate though. Then again my mirror isn't warping.

Funny enough it's actually quite light, everything but the little curved sections are 16g tube. I can't imagine it weighs more than 5 lbs with the mirrors in. The wink mirror had a little weight to it as well, so I'm not concerned really.

Just so you can always see behind you without Turing your head. My favorite application is looking up the on ramps on the highway after you have passed them, so you know if you're about to have a cop get on. I can't think of how many tickets I must have avoided..

Starting the manifold and all the piping for both the wastegates etc etc this week.

Apparently the twincam swap, stroker, sleeves, oversized valves, porting, cams, ecu, forged bottom end, and supercharger werent enough.

Its a suzuki 4wd.. used to be a 1L single cam carbie.

Not really sure, they're for a produce(food) company. I didn't bring the print home to double check.

I'm pretty sure they're just little holders for something, or some type of tool. A cup if you will. Then they get bolted onto something.


It's little piddly crap like this that i make all the time. Nothing really fun. :(

Its a hose for checking runner length.

They are all 17" +/- 1/4"

Here's a bmw e30 with an e36's 2.8 and a nice sized turbo. Intercooler piping, downpipe, wastegate recirculation, and dual exhaust were the customers request. Yes, the shop I'm in has a mandrel bender.
