Youtube it. I had mixed results trying this, and would not try it for the sake being a roll cage, that's the last place you want to half ass something. You would come out a lot cheaper to bring it to metro fab instead of buying your own bender and notcher.

@jhnyquest

I don't know if he is taking on work right now, but I'd bring it to him if you only want to drive to west olive

Nothing wrong with that as long as it's properly sleeved and reinforced, and ideally done at a node but not totally necessary. After seeing your draglink and some of your fab work earlier in this thread I don't think you have any room to talk.


@fabricator has done some damn nice work for people on here, fast, and pretty damn cheap for what you get too.

I'm not saying my stuff is perfect by any means. He just told me not to halfass a roll cage, that's what my comment back was about. He has pieces of tube cut and welded instead of a bend for the harness bar. At least my drag link is sleeved the whole way but I agree it's not the most ideal situation

For anyone interested in parts, I'm parting out my D44. The long side tube isn't straight with the housing, but it's trussed and welded in place now so it can't get any worse. It will still seal with Timken inner axle seals, but only takes a couple thousand miles before it wears through the seal and starts leaking. All other parts are in nice working condition. I'll get an updated list of parts and prices up later this afternoon for anyone interested. The sooner I can get parts sold the sooner I can get cash to fund my 60 build. I'll also take Kingpin 60 parts on trade...
