Justin (vbtj),

Thanks for the bang up job on the beadlock rings.  I think you did a great job on them.  They fit in the rims perfectly and the Pit Bull Rockers snugged in nice and tight. 

For those that don't know, he can cut out a pattern into the beadlocks for a few bucks a ring.  I blogged about how how to build up the wheels and you can see the results for my buggy here 

I was a bit anxious since I haven't done them before but honestly it was a piece of cake as long as you have a welder that can make a good deep puddle of weld.  I will say that getting all those ********** bolts torqued to spec is a whole adventure on it's own.  Let's just say it's a lot of reps with the torque wrench.

Thanks for the praise.  It's a labor of love. I still have a long way to go on the buggy... but it's really getting to the interesting bits now I think.
