    If you were me and you just found an assload of 1/2" rebar in the corner of your backyard, how would you use it. I was thinking shifter. I would hate to see it go to waste!;)

    I'd put it in some concrete, but thats just me
     
  3. Use the rebar to build a bridge , preferably in Brooklyn , then sell the bridge and buy a nice Lokar or Gennie shifter with the proceeds .

    Pour a new drive way other than that rebar is junk. after all thats what it is for concrete reinforcement. Also never weld this stuff rebar is crap the cheapest grade of all steel never use it for anything like lifting or hanging. Maybe ornamental art a shifter thats up to you.

    Pour a concrete pad and use it, or recycle/scrap it.

    Rebar has no place in a nice clean traditional HOT ROD.

    Dig a kidney bean shaped hole about 6 feet deep. Make smaller end of bean only about
    3 1/2 to 4 feet deep.

    Throw down rebar in criss-cross pattern into hole.

    Hire a cement contractor who knows how to build backyard pools..or a skateboard pool maker.

    Pour cement, .... add tile and coping , maybe a deathbox if your feeling punk.

    Frontside rock and roll and smithgrind that shit.

    Get a mirror lay it on the floor.... :D
     
  12. please quantify your term "assload"

    Call a concrete contractor to sell it to.
    Then buy a shiter so you have a place for the next "assload"

    Or buy a shifter, That way your car won't look like ass with a rebar shifter.

    or Build that shiter out of the assload, but save one piece of rebar make your shifter, put your new turd shifter, in the newly build shiter. Maybe you will need a bigger shiter to hold the complete assload of turdish built things (IDK)

    WTF ??????????
