Hey All

So I have a question for all the people who read this. I am just finishing up my High School welding class and as a final project, we have to make a useful product out of some given materials. I have 12ft of 2x2 square structual steel. I will also be starting a pro-touring project in the next few months so any ideas what I could do with this that could help me in building my dream car?

Thanks
Jordan

Assuming the stupid web server ever comes back up, I made a body cart out of that same stuff. You would need more than 12 feet for one, but maybe you can make a subframe cart. I have included pics of my body cart. Check them out, assuming the server comes back:

Expanding on Josh's idea of a body or subframe cart, perhaps you could make an engine stand.

Engine stand, transmission jack.

Subframe connectors?

Subframe connectors?
First thing that came to my mind.
