Default Jockey Box?

I want to build one. One that will last and looks good. Cold plate or SS tubing? Where for parts?

SS is IMO superior than a cold plate. Try the local salvage yards for SS tubing. Ya know I am not sure why we dont use copper... just a thought.

I'd think the cold plate would be more durable, the 15 jocky boxen we have at the store all use cold plates. That said, if your going to be the only one using it you know you will take care of it. It's when you loan it to your black sheep brother-in-law for his nascar* party that it will get the most abuse.


* This statement is in no way to be regarded as a slam on Nascar.
