    I kept doing stuff with my rifles this year. Upgraded my Ruger 10/22 with a Kidd lightweight barrel. It is a Lothar Walther stainless heavy target .920 inch barrel that is machined down with an aluminum sleeve on top. Also added some other Kidd parts. The quality of their machining is outstanding. Love the 10/22 platform as you can easily change every single part on the rifle yourself without any need for a gunsmith.

    Added picatinny rails to my 10/22 and Tikka T3 Lite (in .308 and almost deer season 2014) so I could swap my good Nikon scope between the two using Warne qd steel scope rings.

    Now working on a (doesn't make anyone) safe act legal AR.

    So another year goes by where my B3 sits awaiting me to fix her while I keep feeding my firearm interests. But she knows that her time will come one day so she sits patiently.

    If you just can't stand leaving a car stock you will have the same problem when/if you get into firearms.

    Not sure that turbo placement will work out for you.

    Was this a one off or were you building something larger?

    I rebuilt my welding cart:


    And made a bunch of improvments to my garage setup.

    Each one is a one off. I building them when I'm not busy doing anything else.
    I've done a few more since, I just don't have any photos of them.

    This was my project over the fall/winter. Crashed learned how to weld well enough that it holds but they're not pretty. It's far from done, lots of little details to finish.
    I'll start a separate thread one of these days for it.
