Default Stick burner in the Making

Let me start by saying that I am not a professional welder or metal man! Some of my work may get ugly as I go but the finished product should be acceptable. This is a father/son project. Me and the old man have been wanting to try our luck at comps so we figured we'd create our own weapon, rather than taking out a loan for a Jambo!
  • I recently had a local shop roll, seam, and cap a 6' x 28" dia chamber from 3/16 carbon steel. $453.00
  • I bought a 21' (tongue to tail) boat trailer that will never again see a boat. $250.00
  • I'm having the local shop sheer the steel for my firebox--double layered 1/4 with a ceramic wool insulation. fb= $450.00-475.00; insulation $N/A
  • I plan on buying a chrome diesel stack but may have to go cheap and buy a plain ole' steel pipe.. $N/A

I only have time to work on the project one day a week (Saturday), but I'll do my best to document my progress. Unfortunately, I don't have a shop to work from so we worked all day in the below freezing temps (there's nothing like windburn). I was so preoccupied that I didn't take more than a few photos Didn't get much done on day 1...removed some rust/paint, cut a few sections of square pipe from the rear of the trailer, removed the winch and other "boat parts"... The welder was giving static so no new supports were added.
