    Nice job on the flip. This part is whats got me waiting on the epoxy. I need to do one more weld up out back for the chute pack. Its paining me to order the chute right now. Not sure what to do. Im hoping they are similar in sizing. thought I might take the measurements off the Simpson chute on the coupe.

    Think maybe you might take off the rear bumper and add a roll pan, put your plate there. Add some nerf bars. Or add a bracket to your round bumper for it (probably way easier, thanks Vall) KISS right, naw, gotta over engineer things

    Mike this is my second bumper I have made the first was a modded stock ,then the tube, I even looked at a pan that was in the junk yard ,(plastic).....yuk..... Oh bye the way there is a deploye bag on ebay new starting at $50 Simpson silver fire proof bag I think, my bag is 9x9x5 for a 12 foot shoot the one one ebay is 9x9x7 the plate holes that come with the bag for mine are 8x8 deist. Vall, I had all ready planned to put it on the bumper bracket under the bumper but I saw a 41 Willys truck in gasser magazine with it mounted above the chute and liked it, Kiss I like it but I have problems with following it, I was going to just whip up a bracket with angel iron but ended up using tubing, alot more work and tough to weld nice with a mig, I really want a tig maybe the wife will buy for Xmas............Yaaaaaaaa like thats going to happen

    I like the third pic, lower left, of the 3 . What about mounting it on the tailgate right under poison ivy lettering? Maybe give it a try? Just my opinion but any gasser shouldn't have anything under the rear bumper. Might get ripped off if everything truly goes according to plan!
    Hidden Content Thanks, Craig

    Under the lettering looks good. You could go all street roddy and get one of those brackets that spring retracts and swings down with engine vacuum. Probably be short on vacuum, though, right?
