    Default Garage built Christmas gifts

    I put my new dynasty 200dx to good use the last few weeks building gifts for my relatives. I made my wife a wine rack, with the base being a rear brake drum from my '70 buick electra, and the post a diveshaft from my '98 z28. I wasn't sure how it was gonna work, but it came out sweet! I gave it to her today because we're gonna be out of town the next two days, and she absolutely loves it




    I made stainless steel tags for the dogs, keychains for my siblings, and countertop wineracks for the folks and grandparents, you can see those here: http://detroitwheeliedog.com/v-web/g...hristmas-gifts

    Being in my garage was better than fighting traffic, that's for sure!

    That wine rack looks nice. She should put you a new welder under the tree for that

    Never had luck with aluminum d/s's behind LS1's, I went through 2, and inland empire, and the stock one, switched out to a custom steel, worked well. Been through 3 rear ends too, a stock 10 bolt, and two moser 12 bolts.

    It's modded, but the engine is stock. I've got a moser 9" in back, and I haven't been able to get the stupid thing dialed in. Fully adjustable suspension, and I just can't get rid of wheel hop. I think I'm gonna put a 10 bolt back under the car in the spring and sell it. I've got other things to worry about right now. I was hoping for 11s on a stock internal motor, and I got a 12.2 last year bumpin' off the limiter 3 times into seond and twice into third, so I think its there. But that was on the 10 bolt with 3.73 gears. I think the 9", even with 3.90 gears, is slower.

    Here's a link to a "for sale" thread I had in the summer when I half heartedly tried to sell it, it's pretty much got the entire rundown and some pics:
