Frame Modifications

PostPost by: jkolb » Tue Apr 07, 2009 11:00 pm

The following are photos of the frame modifications that I finally finished. In the spirit of the 26R, but with ideas from other successful projects. These photos were all taken of the frame after welding, but before painting. Stitch welding was used to keep the distortion down as anything. Please feel free to ask questions.

I'm going to split the photos into two sections

P1010005.jpg and
Crossmember reinforcement.
P1010004.jpg and
Reinforced diff rod mount. Note this is also doubled at the channel.
P1010003.jpg and
Longitudinal Bracing
P1010002.jpg and
Antiroll bar bracing
P1010001.jpg and
Front triangle also showing crossmember plate and tow hook.
