Wait a minute, Roller Derby Practice? Do tell :)
Let's see. Coming up on the end of my 5th season. Actually have a bout Saturday night. I'm 43, but expected to meet all the same endurance and skills tests that these kids coming in as young as 18 do. I'll keep playing until my body says, "no more". My primary league, Fountain City, currently plays the MADE ruleset which is "fast derby" but we're one of the last ones in the country to use it so we're transitioning to USARS which is an international "fast derby" ruleset. I've played/do play the WFTDA/MRDA "slow derby" ruleset as well. Our league is one of the largest in the US. We have enough skaters to have 4 women's teams and 4 co-ed teams and run full seasons of each in house. We also have a travel team to go out and play other leagues. I moved into the ownership group of our league this year, mostly handling our finances, taking over for an ex-skater that is retiring out.

Just curious. Are you putting Renegade decals on the sides of the hood or Rubicon decals done in the old Rengade font. Either way I’m sure it’s going to look great.

I'm leaning towards "Renegade" in the newer Rubicon font since I'm not being 100% true to the original CJ design but doing a more modern take on it. I just haven't had a chance to play around with making that look right with the tri-color theme.

I'm pretty certain he built it from rectangular tube stock. We have a shop here in KC that will sell about any extrusion and tubing by the foot. I've also ordered materials online and had them delivered to my work.
Love Metal by the Foot. We need one of those here in Pitt.

I like these retro looking builds. I drive past this one at my local dealer pretty frequently. I like it, but it doesn’t quite do it for me. I wish the wheels were chrome, and then I know I’m in the minority, but I don’t like the AEV bumpers. Then there’s the $91k and change price tag.

Sneak peak. I got the side stripes on today. I'm gonna need a mental break before tackling the hood.

That one was made by “Drunk Elf Fabrication” aka me. I made the rear bumper too. Started with 6 feet of 6x6 1/4 wall square tube and split it length wise and went from there. Lots of cutting, drilling and welding later I have the Retro style bumpers I wanted.

VERY cool!
These bumpers are SO much like the ones I built for my '83 CJ-7 back in the early 90's...
Nice work! (Love the Renegade decal!)

Man I've been contemplating retro graphics for my sarge 392, digging through all the old threads on various forums dating back years, and then I stumble on this one! Those graphics look incredible @LOBBS ! Can't wait to see some more pics :involve:
