Yes, I know, the red doesnt quite match, but for someone who is partially colorblind, its plenty close.

Well...I designed it, and Griffin Specialty Industries plasma'ed it out for me, and made the bends.  Then I welded it up and painted it.

TG E-Locker housing.  This will be mated up with the E-Locker from the donor Taco which Griffin is regearing for me.  It would be regeared already if he would stop spending so much time doing unimportant things like running 2 businesses and birthin' babies.

That's what I suspected.  I'd like to hear how well you like it after you get it put together and ran it for a while.

Yes, they had it on sale.  OW, I would not have gotten Craftsman.
