Team Manresa’s Master Fabricator, Lou Urbina, decide it was time to help out Team El Dorado by constructing a hand built, custom Macho Monster Rack to carry gear and supplies.
Lou wasted no time in cutting and reshaping the black beauty until the shape fit its new steed!
Once the shape was a perfect fit, it was time to beef up the platform (Based on the “soft” film crew that will be perched on it during the film shots), a handful of thick wall steel sticks were strategically place in order to carry the above said load!
Then a custom gear cage was added to assist in load shifts and strap wraps.
Team Manresa’s Crew Chief, Juan Villeron, stopped by to lend a hand and give each vehicle a one last “Once-over”, including replacing the U-Joints on the “88 Beast”!
After a final paint job, the rack was installed…a perfect fit!
The boys went completely above and beyond the call of duty in assisting us with our mission. We could never repay their whole-hearted love and talent which they have given to the Baja3000 project.
