Default Redneck engineering

We have any redneck engineers? Lets hear it! I had an air line whistling so while I was at work I found some 350 PSI hydraulic line hose for our fork lifts; it was 3/8 so I used it. Worked nicely

well, on my old 83 ranger, the air duct from the filter to the front rotted out, so i got a dixie cup & cut the bottom out & a slit down the side. duct taped it to 'complete' the flow from the grill intake haha!

There's nothing more Redneck than using duck tape for everything. Period.

On my 1999 XLT I broke the tube going between the air intake and the valve cover, replaced it with fuel line hose I had laying around. Duct taped my dome light back in once till I replaced it. Used channel locks and vice grips to steer the truck when the steering wheel was taken off by a friend of mine as a April fools prank.

I had a coupler fall off a banshee exhaust where the expansion pipe comes to the tail pipe. I fixed it with a Pepsi can and 2 hose clamps lol. Duct tape, hose clamps and zip ties will fix the world.

Before I got my tool box I made a pool for the kids with a tarp in the back of my truck. My kids loved it; neighbor thinks I'm a genius. (He's from way up North)

So the other day me an my buddy moved his 12x12 shed, using his single cab Toyota pickup. Jacked the shed up in the air about a foot an a half then we used 4 2x8's across the bed screwed into the support beams of the shed. Lowered the shed onto the truck and moved it across the yard. It was sketchy and redneck as heck. By the way his truck wss sitting on its bump stops haha. All during the time my ranger was off to the side happy it didn't have the shed in it haha

Default Re: Redneck engineering

Hello I'm new to this site and need help. I've looked up how to make homemade cold ait intakes and havent found a video or step by step for a 91 ford ranger 3.0 V6, I'm looking to make mine outta PVC pipe. I would like to know how to build one without spending all that money. I'm know very little about intakes or anything connected to it. I see it looks easy but I got thing running from my air filter box and when I do the Mod it wont have a box. Where do these end up going? Anyone done this and have pic or can help me redneck it. Thanks
