That frame will definitely be strong enough. I love those F style clamps. I have a couple of mini 4" and big 12" ones at work and at home. I use them all the time. They make a handy press or spreader in a pinch too.

I do feel like the frame is a little on the overkill side. One of my goals with this build was to make it as light as possiable but solid and strong. When i went to buy that 1in x 3in rect tube i was wanting 14ga wall thickness, but they weren't carring it anymore so i went with 1/8in instead. Now thinking back should've got 1in x 2in x 1/8.
There is going to be another section of frame under that main part and that will consist of 1in x 1in sq tube with 1/8 wall too. So after all of the bracing and mount bars/tabs are installed, i'll be going through and trying to lighten anything i can.

I've learned my lesson on clamps, buy some good ones. They dont need to be the top of the line expensive ones but the bottom of the barrel ones just dont last that long or preform well. Then a good selection of lenghts and styles helps out alot to.

That frame is looking sweet.  Going to be very sturdy.  Excellent example of a custom frame.

Thanks guys.
The frame still has a long way to go till its done, got to get other parts done on here to get measurements and figure out part's placement to finish it up.  

Most of my parts came in this week now im hoping to get one of my half started setups done so i can post it and get this build up to date

24 bronze bushings
3 different od. of dom tube
Rod ends
Metric bolts
SS shim washers
Ill go more indept on parts when i use them on build

Not sure why pics are starting to get burry may be time for a new phone.
