HUMVEE Driver's Tire Armor

I was influenced by the armor worm by Wez in The Road Warrior and I made this with him in mind. Just a piece of tire tread bolted to large belts to protect your stomach. I also bolted various spikes in a random pattern throughout the armor. Working with tire tread is very difficult. It is almost impossible to cut, with the thick rubber and the numerous steel radials. Then once you do cut it, all those radials become sharp needles; not a good thing to have on your skin. But, a sawz-all with the correct kind of blade will cut it, and you may also need a large vice to hold it when you cut.
