Wescotts has frame dimensions listed in the back of their catalogue.

Pretty useful info all around... Not a complete 'how to ' but at least it will give you an idea or two.

I just visited wescotts and noticed they now have ariticles on frame alignment as well an the tech page. Tips on paint too.


......It does require an adobe reader to view though.

I right clicked the file and selected 'save as' to save it onto my hard drive for later viewing....

Sorry but I don't know how to get a hold of him and there is no info on those web pages. That info may have come from the T bucket site.

Any idea who that belongs to? In the article he said he got the body from sprint industries in Mountain Home. I had no clue it was here, but it is.

The pic on the main page has the college I went to in the background. I need to go find this place ASAP!
