Default Re: Engine Table and other car-themed furniture & accessories

I had always seen office tables and bed and pool tables made out of the automobile frames. They look really cool and only an automotive enthusiast can pull of this sort of furniture.

P.S. My favorite is the last one-The Willy's Jeep Office Table. I will surely make it soon.

It's not actually a mod job, but an awesome imaginative play! This air compressor I saw at City Palace Udaipur! And above all this compressor has got a registration number too!

Default Need a V8 Block (Damaged or not) to make a coffee table.

Hey guys. As being a car enthusiasts i need a V8 or bigger block to make a coffee table for my living room. I have tried getting it from scrap yard. But so far no luck. Jaipur and Delhi i have searched everywhere of all the people i know , nothing. If anyone wants to sell it let me know. My budget is limited and i don't wanna spend too much on it , I just want it on a scrap value.

Hi there.

Good luck finding a V8.

Not to be discouraging, but it might be quite a hard task.

Since the idea is good, may I suggest going with the block of an Indian car?

Perhaps a car with childhood or other fond memories. Will make interesting conversation.

For one, the block and hence the table will be of a manageable size and weight for Indian conditions.

And two, V8s are a little cliche.

Good luck and be sure to show us your finished product.

Cheers.

Some years back scrapped a V12. But that was an industrial engine.
Getting a scrapped (automotive) V8 in India:- good luck with that. Also have you worked out the weight in case you need to shift the table.

The other use of busted V8 is as wine bottle holders!

+1 to Sutripta.

I had a Pegeout and a Nissan SD25 block and tried the same with it. The limiting factor is weight. You can weld wheels/bushes but still it will weigh quite a bit.

That said, you dont really need a V8. Even a V6 will do. Try the one from the accord. Easy to source. Get the block, shave of as much as metal on the inside from the metal shop, and get it balanced.
