    Default custom creeper

    well got started on my creeper tonight, i have the frame welded up and wheels mounted (temporarily) tomarrow i hope to bend the diamond plate for the platform and make a headrest, when that's finished i will cut off the caster studs and call it done.

    the first and second are an over all picture, third is the 3/4" ground clearance (and some welds) fourth is the wheel and mount i bent, and fifth is some more welds.
    please don't be too critical of the welds, my filler rods were trashed from living atop the welder un protected i wire brushed them all to hide the contamination.

    this prompted another project for tonight....i made some PVC tube rod holders need to hit the LWS now and fill them up!

    Oh Poo. Another project idea. Looks great and it's a neat project. Now if I had a little more ambition and a lot more time! LOL

    well here it is with the platform on, i might make it narrower (<--is that even a word?) i think it is too wide right now it may catch too many sparks and funnel them to my back.....ouch!

    i'm still trying to decide if i want to make the headrest so it tilts up or if i should just mount a cushon to the platform and be done with it. i think back and even when i do use a creeper with the tilt option i rarely use it.....but on the other hand i have a prety nice creeper so why not have all the trinkets let me know what you all think.
