Default HookedOnQ's U.D.S Build(pic heavy)

Well finally got some time to work on my uds today and made pretty good progress. I strayed away from the KISS method pretty far on my build but im only $150 bucks in on it so far and a lotta time but its been fun and its built the way i want it.. I will post more pics as i complete the build

I can't take any credit for the hinge design i got the idea and design from a fellow brethren by the name of razrbackcrzy who was very helpful in sharing his design with me... All i have left to do now is finish the lid latch and sandblast and paint once time permits. It has been a fun build but im ready to have it done and cooking

Damn what a hinge. I love overbuilt stuff, makes it look bad to the bone and shows off your awesome fab skills. Great looking UDS, I need to build one some day and maybe make it that nice if I learn to weld!

If you take care of that, it should last a very long time. Great job!

I love the hinge. Is there a tab on the drum that the handle in the small bung latches onto?
