I am curious. Why do you want to use stainless steel to build your frame?
Are you familiar with the fabrication of stainless steel?

Stainless is difficult to bend and shape and the reveal in the frame rails will be very hard to duplicate .

shhhhh.. I was waiting to see if sst23 knew that.


And it is also very hard to keep it from distorting when you weld it...

Welcome to the site Mrs. Deuce. What happened? Did Deuce take your three window away? The tudor looks like a great place to start building a new rod! I hope you have Deuce lined up to help. You and the dog look pretty happy!

You know how women are ...
She wanted her own identity ... she sees the email notifications I receive when someone reports a spam or offensive post and got curious. There has been a few females on the board lately and I have gotten a few PM's from them and about them ...

Curiosity killed the Cat ...
and may kill her too ...

Well, Deuce, If she has been Mrs D for 32 years I'll bet any OTHER woman who has set her sights on you had better be prepared for a fight. I'll bet she had her own identity WAY before this.

Any one who put up with teaching algebra to teenagers AND being married to you has got to be tough.

No I don't want a smack in the head..
That was a compliment.

(Deuce knows he's my favorite)

later, mikey

That is some nice looking work. I bet it takes longer to polish everything out than it does to fabricate it.

Many people are unaware of the difficulty in fabricating stainless. But the thought of using the material intrigues them.

I would think that you could find a guy with a 32 frame and take some templates and measurements for your project.
The measurements by themselves will make it difficult as there are not many flat areas on those frames.

The guys I know who make them have all the flat peices laser cut out of plate, and then weld the corners together in a fixture.

I'm curious myself as to what type of stainless you would use on a car frame and suspension parts. I always thought that the mechanical properties of some types of stainless is not as good as mild steel.

Later, mikey
