Re: homemade Z bar (please help)
I made my own Z bar, do not heat the stock one and bend it..
What i did is take a length of thick walled, seamless hydaulic tubing, bent it in a pipe bender, and this is how i obtained the drop
Next, i cut up my stock bar, So the the peices fit in the hydraulic tubing, up to the bends.. I ajusted it so its the same length as the stock bar. Then i tacked it, double checked everything, and welded it all around.
Next, using a torch, i cut from 1/4" plate trusses that go on the bends... I welded them in.. Thats about it.. Also make sure you put in some plug welds.
