PostSubject: Front bar phase 1   Sun Oct 01, 2017 5:39 pm

So today i have made progress on my removable front bar. This phase in this project was to get the mounts and main box steel in place and welded.



Just some of the general steel i'm using, there are some sections of 2.5" exhaust that i'm gonna put in later this month.



Overview of the garage i'm working in.  



How i managed to clamp these in place was duck tape (mostly because c clamps were shifting it to much).

So, I was going to order a porta-band table from swag off road but i ended up using the vice with some
Yankee Ingenuity.



This is how it turned out in the end (i known my welds are fat and ugly, but it holds so i don't care).
The next part is to put some tube steel into a trapezoid shape and weld it up.

In other news some of my fends in school that are in one of my groups are getting into mowers and have got some spots for good trails,
So i will probably be mounting my go pro up and filming our stuff.

Look up mag-mate welding squares. Get a couple 90*/45* units. Made in USA. They actually hold stuff together for tack welding. I have a couple... work well so far.

...not like those crappy chinese things that dont hold worth a stink.
