WooHoo

Well, I received my tubing bender from Pro-Tools today. The UPS guy struggled to get the 4 40-60 pound boxes out of his truck. I put it all together on the floor and it weighs in at around 125 pounds! I am going to build a steel 4x6 table to mount it tomorrow. Should start work on the frame next week! Finally!

Re: WooHoo

Heh, not starting the engine till I get a rolling chassis. I need to get the thing so I can move it out of the garage when I have to. As far as the engine goes, I will be ordering the block, blower, and EFI while building the frame so I can set the engine in and see where I need to mount the engine mounts so the bugcatcher will sit right in the hood. Won't be buying any internals till I am ready to set the engine in. You will get to see the blower though. Prob. in like 1-2 months hopefully. Gotta make some more money first. Make that lots more money.

Re: WooHoo

How much did the tube bender run you? I want to start getting into fabrication for my projects now and in the future.

Re: WooHoo

Get ready for this, 1400!!! I could have gotten a cheaper one or a hand powered one but since there is more than 60 bends in my frame and cage I wanted one that will do the job right and easy. It's the http://www.pro-tools.com one shot hydraulic bender with all the acccessories. I figure I can build my custom bumpers and everything else with it so I see it as money well spent.

Re: WooHoo

Did you see the 1/4 elliptic post? I think it is a good design for someone on a budget like me. I would like to see your frame design if you have it on computer. Thanks.

Re: WooHoo

These are two pics of my frame from autocad. I made them a lower res so they would upload faster and be viewed quicker. It's not quite finished since I have had no time to work on it.

Re: WooHoo

I have 2002. I started the drawing in 2000i and moved it to the new 2002. I have been working with autocad since I was around 12 since my dad is a contractor. I am completely self taught. I took the beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes at the local college but just for the certificate in it. I finished all the homework and the finals the first 2 weeks. Got a 100% in all three classes. I have been just playing around with it for 7 years.
