It will be a triangulated four link with Fox coilovers and Johnny Joints. I built my own hydraulic bender that uses Hossfield dies. I use both a Williams Low-buck shear type notcher for 0 to 15 degree copes and a Harbor Freight hole saw notcher for steeper notches. The tubing is 1 1/2"x.120" HREW. Pretty much all of the 1 1/2" is done, most of the rest that will be added is 1 1/4" and 1"x.120".TNToy said:Larry, *VERY* impressive tube work. I guess I'll go ahead and ask what bender and tubing diameter/wall you're using, since it ALWAYS comes up.
Looks like you're going leaf sprung front... 3/4 link and coil/coilover/quarter-elipo in back, right?
Actually, I'm glad I waited as long as I did. The sport has changed so much, and I have learned alot in the last two years. We are doing stuff I never would have imagined. I have a much better idea of what I want in a chassis now. I did start another one a couple of years ago, but it was an antique by the time I was nearly done with it so I sold it.rustyPOS said:cool..I'm suprised you waited so long
That's almost as impressive as all of those tubes with bends in three dimensions. Although, I suppose a bender isn't really as complicated as they seem... Kind of a "line it up and weld it where it needs to be" type of thing?I built my own hydraulic bender that uses Hossfield dies.
I looked into the williams low-buck unit a while back. The price made the "low-buck" title seem like a cruel, misleading joke... but you get what you pay for, and the HF one leaves a wee bit to be desired at times.I use both a Williams Low-buck shear type notcher for 0 to 15 degree copes and a Harbor Freight hole saw notcher for steeper notches.
