Red Green Truck Bumper Build

Post by Hale » Wed Apr 29, 2020 10:09 pm

Hola lads.

So I upgraded to a larger but still used truck about six weeks ago. It was a furniture delivery truck that had been rammed into the receiving bay a thousand times and needed a new bumper.

I found a cheap factory replacement but knew I would run into or over something and needed something that woulr withstand daily work use..

So a friend gave me these telephone pole crossbeams and I came up with this creosote and linseed oil soaked monstrosity.

If they don't find you handsome at least let them find you handy.
