Here's where I'm at as of tonight... I have to do a lot tomorrow and hoping I can spend about 1 hour on it tomorrow... We will see....





I spent a good part of my day reading this thread, just far freakin' out!!! One question, are all your welds MIG, or did you use TIG as well?

I don't know what he paid but I do know that the price can go all over the board. I have a place near me that is so friggin awesome! http://www.naylorsteel.com/Home_Page.html I know it's not much of a web site but he is a little old school. This place is so great, I have had them make like 50 pieces for me in one size then a bunch in another and so on. Simply brought them home and welded up some super ramps for my alignment rack to put ultra low cars on it. These ramps were about twenty feet long and I didn't have to cut a single piece. And it's SUPER cheap compared to some other smaller closer places to me.

Check around your area and see what you can find.

Brian

The frame is 2''x4''x1/8'' cut down in the front to 2''x3'' and I do have some 2''x3'' on it also... As far as the price... I want to say I'm around $1,200 I'm guessing give are take....I really don't have a lot in it... I still have to buy the all stainless steel front end for it... That's around $2,000

But it look's good with it on the front end... I use a stainless front end to mock it up,,, I now have a plain front end for mocking up a frame on it now...I'm just getting in from a long day... I had to go watch my little girl's ROTC drill team at a drill meet... That did great.. Took home about six first place awards..

Then I sprayed some primer today,, Then went To my wife's family for a Christmas party... Now I'm just getting in...I didn't even take the pictures yet... I will post as soon as I go take them...

Yep !!!! that can sure change things..

I had some friends stop by and tell me:I didn't know you had a Tig machine.... I said:
I don't... They saw some of my weld's and thought I Tig-ed it...

Well here's a few shot's...

I have to say: I love spraying this SPI Epoxy primer...
If you haven't tried it... You just don't know what your missing out on...Great stuff...I only have one Problem with it.... I RAN OUT !!!!!!

I have to get some more for sure... Still need to do the rear end.... So a order for some more Black Epoxy and gray 2k as soon as I can...

Now it's time to start smoothing everything out... No welds...

Here's a few shot's of the frame... I have to put off the smoothing and painting of the frame until after the Holiday's..

With Christmas and a few bills in the way, I will just let it sit in Primer for now.. It sure is coming a long... Can't wait... So here's where it sit's for now...
