Ok so I'm bored at the moment and looking for a project, so I've decided to learn how to weld.
Now. What to weld? Well I've always wanted a racing cockpit for my games since I had an old Thrustmaster to play Need for Speed 1.
So now I'm making it a reality. I looked at my options a few years back. Playseats are pretty cool, but steep at around $600 plus postage plus the cost of a Logitech G25. The missus would never let that fly.
I found this thread:
And asked Dean, the designer if he wanted me to make a prototype. This is what I'm hoping the finished product to look like, with the addition of a bucket seat..
So I've bought a Logitech G25, and a seat, and after doing a heap of cuts and spending some quality time in the shed learning to weld this is the story so far...
The welding in the second pic was the most haggard shit ever. I don't know what it was but I was terrible that day. Came back the next and filled up all my holes no problems. I don't get it I'm so inconsistent.
Anyway that's where I'm at. I'm hoping to get a heap more done this weekend. I'd like to mod my G25 so I have a handbrake on it for rally/drift games. Apparently it's easy but if anyone has done it let me know.
