So an old friend of mine started a automotive art company. I commissioned him to do a project, he sent me this picture and asked if I could come up with the parts. Crazy enough I am able to come up with almost all the parts to do a 90, so I wanted to see if anyone was interested so he could be building it for someone to spec... To be clear it is just gonna be the wall mount, but if someone is interested in sure he could build the bar as well... Anyway if there is any interest please let me know and I will connect the two ppl. Keep in mind this is not gonna be cheap! Also if you have another ideas I am sure he would be happy to do other style defender art as well. Here is some of his work...

To be clear the rover is just an image of a bar, not his work... The other images are his, he is making me front grill assembly to hang on the wall. I gave him a bunch of tubs, doors, roofs from old projects to make some stuff. So we will see what he comes up with as well.

that full length bar qualifies for the term "badassery"

Nice, Brian.
He did a good job.

How much does it weigh?
Can we see the backside/skeleton view?

So this is wall art and not a bar. Looks interesting.

Nice stuff. I'd like one with all the original patina.

Beautiful work. I know of a company that makes really unique office furniture with old aircraft parts. Very cool looking but I'd be afraid of getting Tetanus.

Hung it yesterday, no intentions on location at all... I walked in this morning to this glorious site, and I knew it was gonna be a good day.
