Indeed. Watching with admiration and interest. Motorcycling?

Also, I'm a fan of all things on two wheels. Though I prefer the asphalt to dirt that is just due to never really riding dirt.

Can't wait to see more of your build.

Again nice job. I was going to suggest you start a thread earlier today. How is the alum angle fastened to the work surface of your sliding table?

Thanks again racer and flyer....the aluminum around the slide out table is a "u" channel...I scuffed the inside of it and used a little PL along with some #4 ss screws countersunk on the bottom.....its nothin fancy...no slides or nothin except 2 strips of 1/8" thick pvc ripped out of some 3/4 I had left over from some columns....its only 3/4" plywood...just meant to hold light stuff....helmet,goggles,gloves,drinks,etc

Here's just a suggestion to anyone making walls/cabinets out of wood and dosnt know how to weld (me).... anything that needs to be attached to the wall I made run past the plane of the interior walls... to kind of "lock it into place in case of an accident... it's a little more work but I think it would help in an accident... but who knows... here's some pics to better explain




And here's some pics of the ceiling and some screen I added to the plastic cover things in the rear pillar along with some other stuff

Been busy with work but got around to mounting the lights on one of the upper cabinets.... the strips under the cabinets are pick up bed lights and the flood light on the end is just a cheap set from Amazon (I don't carry a 500$ flashlight)... I used a knob on the inside instead of a nut so I can rotate it
