I finished my "Cloned" Daytona jack today... 

 While it's not 100% Authentic, I think I came pretty close  scratchchin

 A few cool things that I like about it:

 I didn't have to mortgage the house to pay for it. coolgleamA

 I can ACTUALLY change a tire with it without worrying about scratching a priceless heirloom 2thumbs


Here's a couple of pictures:

 I have no mad fabrication skills like chris so i bought mine . But pete does a great job of making them for you .
  didnt paint my jack up pretty yet , it makes it look older and maybe more real  ?   Wingnut Pete also makes the hold down and the handle .

No, it's the Larry that thinks that if looks good enough from 10 feet away, then it's good enough.

What does your jack handle look like?
I'll bet that I've thrown away a dozen handles that would have passed well enough for a clone.
Now I need a couple of them.  Cry

Thanks, Rene'! It's just my crappy camera, it's really red red red in real life. As a matter of fact it's Ford farm tractor red in a spray can from the local Rural King supply store 2thumbs

You've got me beat on the price, counting the cost of the paint I think I've got $25 tied up in this one... coolgleamA

Larry, Here's a picture of my jack handle.

Not 100% correct, but it's close enough for me.

 90% of the people will never know.

The other 10% will get a trunklid slammed on the back of their neck when they stick their head that far into my trunk to take a closer look  smilielol


My jack handle is from a mid to late 1990's Jeep Cherokee... 2thumbs


I'll bet MoparStuart has a hundred of them right now... scratchchin

He probably has like a hundred and I only need two. What's wrong with that picture?
But I do have something that he doesn't have...a lot of his parts for his Daytona clone sitting in my shop.
For some reason, the word "Ransom" keeps popping into my head. But I think that's because I breathed in a whole lot of bondo dust today.  dance
