This looks pretty good mounted on my ramp.
Reminds me of Scared Stiff bones ramp cover.
Made by spinny-vinny for sale soon.
Even has the rattle at the end of the snake.

How much for this mod Vinnie?

#4 2 years ago

Interested. How much?

#5 2 years ago

Hey guys, sorry I forgot to answer this thread when it was started! They are $150 CAN.
I have been asked to extend the snake down to were the plastic guard is right now. The thing with that is if you have a light bar it is in the way, and there is very little clearance between the ramp and the cabinet in that area. These are the reasons I didn't do that section. I will be starting the add on peace pretty soon and will keep you posted when its done.

I sure do. At the moment I have two skull hammers that are 50% done and one mallet that is ready to go.

The cemetery is good to go as well. I’m only making the Celtic crosses right now. I’m having issues with both of the white cross moulds.

You have to get a hold of gorillabiscuits for that one. That’s not my mod.

#43 1 year ago

Any questions about the mods, feel free to PM me. I don’t check the threads on a regular basis.

It’s usually one of my good buddies that tell me to look into things.

All of Vinny mods are outstanding. Some of the highest quality stuff I have ever purchased

If anyone has the snake ramp mod you know how heavy it gets and causes vibration

This simple fix makes it solid and sturdy with no flex or vibration. A simple post and clip that I shaved a U into to help support the ramp. Works flawlessly and is not even noticeable
