Style Is Everything

Posts tagged “tubing notcher

Good Saturday!

Got an early start today and accomplished enough to make myself happy.  That damn tubing notcher from Harbor Freight is designed to wear out quickly I swear.  I can already tell I’m gonna have to make one myself with ball bearings and such.  Brass bushings just dont cut it when trying to burn through DOM tubing.  Anyway, I fixed that shit….

So the thing is made for a 1/2 inch arbor and comes with an adapter to go to 5/8. I’ve gone through two adapters now as I went back and bought another kit. When the second one fractured I just said screw it and got busy…

That’ll teach her to break on me!!

Anyway, after overcoming that little obstacle I got the passenger side door bars done, the harness bar done and the diagonal brace. Tomorrow is the driver side and I may start cutting into the rear for the truck conversion. I still have to figure out how I want to brace everything back there before it get’s too flimsy.
