Thanks Steve.

Question for you in particular. Your 4 seater ; had any trouble with your trans cooler mounted here?




Only place I have to put them that's not in the passenger area behind front seats, (sam is using 2; steering and trans), one per side.

Thank you. It's getting progress soon. Owner decide to ditch the super 60 and steering 14 bolt, in exchange for two, steering, trail gear 9's with super duty knuckles. Also sent me the trail ready 20's and 42 reds.

FWIW, mine is just like that as well (PJ put mine there) and I have never had a single issue with it. I've never even gotten close to overheating my trans. Its not a 4 seater obviously...but no issues with it whatsoever.

not the greatest pic, but you can see it there

Seeing as you're doing more aluminum work, have you considered or do you use additional PPE for welding aluminum?

I follow a number of bicycle frame builders on IG, and one in particular recently started using a dedicated helmet with air supply because he was getting sick (aluminum poisoning).

cheers,

Chris

I follow the same builder,lol. I wear a 3M respirator when grinding and welding aluminum, the fine dust gives me a sinus infection almost immediately... especially if I haven't taken claritan daily.

ventilation for aluminum is as important as for steel, without a small fan setup or a dedicated draft table, a dedicated air supply hood is nice but comes with a decent price penalty.

lately at work they've been pushing hard on how much more quickly stainless steel welding will kill you, rather than just make you sick. Would have been nice to know a decade ago!

yeah, Ive never used a ventilation hood.. yet havent welded anything in about 10 years or so.. I used to weld a good bit..

when I took courses in welding (college).. I dont remember anyone even having a dedicated air supply hood..

so its just with aluminum and steel???

Yup, I'd say so. I have even less room than that between my cell and cooler...and like I said, never a single issue from it.

Looking good!

Doing that sheetmetal thing. Center mass of dash under construction. Mocked up a tube on the bench, for easier fabrication since the door bars are already in.

I'll have more pics as we go... table is such a mess, hard to get a clear idea of what's happening.

Copper too. Everyone at work thats certified to weld copper has their own personal welding hood with a hookup for the plant's breathing air system. That shit will make you sick quick without it, especially if you're mig welding it.

I'm excited to see this in the rig, having a hard time visualizing what's going on here. Regardless, I love what you've got going on. Taking seemingly simple brackets and making them works of art.

I hear ya... sometimes I struggle with my own ideas...

Imagine the windshield spreaders landing on the mock up tube, above the two dash vertical rails.

Btw, the two L bracket feet, are only too hold up the tube and fixture to the table. The 5/8 holes in the flange are spaced for the certiflat table.
