DIY homies.  I recently moved to a smaller town. And thereís an old train dock slab thing. Near working order train tracks.  The slab/dock is over grown etc so in my eyes itís fair game. Where I used to live was a decent sized city and the diy was built on a very similar old train dock slab ( dead ass donít know the term or what to call it ) and it was just guerilla built. Still standing after like 5 or maybe more years.

My question is. Living in a small town now. Should I just start building and hope it goes unnoticed and that I donít get caught by a small town cop. Better to ask for forgiveness than permission or try and talk the town into letting me build but if they say no I lose the spot before even starting. Town has a metal prefab but Iím not a fan.

Iím just trying figure the best route in this since Iíll be doing it alone at least for the time being

Dunno if this counts as itís not a spot, but ever since seeing @doublesteveburger tear the ass out that little ledge/box thing, Iíve wanted to build something similar.  Today I finally did. 

Cut up some scraps and snagged a stainless steel corner guard from work for one edge, then bought some steel angle iron for the other side.  Itís only 8Ē tall and 4ft long, so that I can easily throw it in my car, but itís pretty well braced inside with 2x4 so hopefully itís reasonably sturdy, and doesnít slip out when I attempt my halfcab noseslides or whatever.
