|Lot's of cuts made in order to shape these around the body door frame area.The amount of cut is determined by how easy it is to bend evenly without going all the way through.|
They will be welded back up or strength welds added to nocthes
Got some steel square tubing which is almost perfect for this type of modification.Note-did you know that "square" tubing is actually rounded on the 4 corners? This is for strength,not to make it easier on your dainty hands.Round tubing has more strength because the load is place evenly,square is not.That's why is has rounded corners,cool hah?
|Right & left side made almost identical.Took about 2 hours to make as it was constant back and forth from fitting on body than to the saw.The less amount of notches,the less welding back up and time saved.|
|The pieces of tubing helps keep the panel with distribution.Don't want to have vise grips crush on this.|
The beams go on the top inside of this and down by the hinges.I'll try to get a better flick of this.
