Clearly not the DC inside-the-beltway prices for welding.

This Is The Most Terrifyingly Crappy Roll Cage You've Ever Seen

Yeah, that's more like it. Rear cross shouldn't take more than a day.

Zero reason. We should send him some rear cross work. At those prices Lav can stop taking Uber between Halloween and Easter

Really is silly what we pay for convenience here in the DC area.

Wow I get to sit in sunny Sanibel Island and miss a HH where skinny Dave goes off....

All I'll say is my boy Dean at Independent did a fantastic job on my truck and I would say anyone can stick their nose in it and see. Dave can't comment on yours. But mine is awesome and I would definitely recommend Dean and his team.

Cool, I'm glad to hear they have improved. Now let's see those welds!

It'd almost be tempting to bump it to Wed 3/16.

I second the motion (if that's a motion; if not I so move)--the only thing worse more off-putting than Kilroy's on any old Thursday would Kilroy's on St. Patrick's Day.

I don't think my lungs could take a smoke-filled St. Pattys tent!

Ok, well then I hate crowds of drunkards spilling beer all over me. I typically like to be the only one fitting that description in a room or gathering.

Speaking of HH, does anyone local need the blasted Disco 1 CD changer I've been very halfheartedly trying to offload for several months?

Free to a good home, or even to a really horrible, dysfunctional one that will emotionally scar it forever.
