Default Re: The 'Truck Vice' for Tailpipe Bending

I think I saw Ingenuity 101 on Discovery in a couple different versions. It's true, that learning to do with what is immediately available is a crucial skill. It's easy to plop down money and time to solve problems, but ingenuity can get er done and protect the wallet.

Just today, I fixed an overhead light in a car with JBWeld and a piece of scrap plywood. I used packing tape to form a nonstick dam around the broken missing area, plywood formed the tabs and a stick made the measurements for the mounting holes which got drilled. It would have cost bucks at the dealer, even a junk yard.

I'm hoping to apply some ingenuity to my bike and get a jackshaft and shifter built.
