Default "R2-D21" Build log

So since I'm oh-so-confident in my welding skills I've decided to give a crappy old truck a crappy new life. I have here a '97 Nissan D21 Hardbody p/U that I acquired back in May. It's 138k worth of rotted, twisted, and rat defecated Japanese truck that really deserves a 2nd go. I also have ANOTHER '97 D21 that'll donate it's guts and seats (Heated waterproof Polynylon) to become a strictly bog truck. Or the ultimate 4x4 Go Kart...

In a single night I managed to take a complete truck, strip the interior, body, and wiring.

Nice job. I always hate the "putting back together" part though

Only question is how to cut it apart... Thermite or our favorite toystore's massive collection of cheap tools?

Thermite works well. I like the look of melted metal dripping onto the ground
