So I started a travel sized UDS

Post by SmokinFF » September 13th, 2013, 5:13 pm

I've had the idea in the works for a while and finally gathered up the pieces. I'm waiting for a few more, so sorry I'll have to hold you guys in suspense. Here's a pic of the burnout.

Got a little more done the last couple days. Still waiting on parts to arrive. :-w
Air inlet on the back side.
Image
2 air inlets on the front. They are piped to the bottom of the drum.
Image
Doin a test burn to make sure the piping design would work. Came up to 250* in about 5 min and held.
Image
Got the base welded on yesterday.
Image
Added some bolts for some bling.
Image
More pics to come as soon as I get the other parts. The wait is killing me!!

They're just for detail. They'll get painted with the rest of it. Besides that, I prolly couldn't afford them.
