    IDK if it's my undying wish to justify purchasing a hydraulic bender from Rogue right now or..... BUT Thanks for the props! You guys are definitely motivating. The primary justification and legitimate reason for sticking to the towers this far has been the need to retain the UCA mount and not...

    Welders, welding, and stuff

    These are some that I got done over the weekend. Youtube Certified Amateur Garage Professional Welder. It's not all glory. Half of these were left handed, and the other half right. In time I will pick up my own TIG machine, but for now I am totally happy with running MIG for everything...

    I've been busy... aside from this project the home buying process is coming to a close which is rad, but also daunting! I took some time to de-stress from work and all of the paperwork to knock this out and well... Got some burn time in. Swapped out the .030 wire for some .035 and let me be the...

    Hey man, thanks! This is a fun project that has gone smoothly so far with some hiccups, but overall very rewarding. The tower sits just shy of 5" from the top of the factory tower. I am trying to be creative with getting a top plate cut and making a brace across the engine bay. I do also have...

    I think I understood what you were saying based off of the model you were showing. The tabs I have on the edges of the plates are right at around .75" in length with an overlap gap of about 1/16. I needed to lessen the tolerances because we are not sourcing a laser cutter. The CNC plasma turned...

    Tolerances were a bit TOO tight, but that was to be expected with the slightly less precise plasma, in comparison to laser. I got everything placed and mocked up for fitment and such. No shock bungs to weld in, so a bolt will work for now! Going to make two more changes: 1) Radius the corners of...

    Here is a photo update from the weekend because :useless:. I did get around to welding on the Sonoran Steel limit strap hardware, but I am wanting to get a tab to support that spacer. Watch out @eimkeith order inquiry incoming!

    A glorious dumpster fire mind you! :deadbanana: @VernySanders Thanks man, very cool! Meeting with CNC today to get the part files over to them then hopefully Filthy Motorsports can come through clutch for the weekend in getting the new springs over to me! Front LCA bushings are done along with...

    It's like you can read my mind. Thats what I'm working on at the minute. I have half of the material thickness as the relief between two parts now. Going to tab and notch the shock tabs now.

    @AssBurns @eimkeith Tabs or no tabs and fully welded seams?

    I went back through with a fine tooth comb, took out the sleeves that you could originally see in the assembly, and this is what will be cut out. Had to go back through and isolate each part to make everything segmented. Getting better and better with each part, but IV can be a really deep...

    Great minds come up with the same histerical ideas I suppose. Nah nah, I got my hands on these for $280 so it was a no brainer. I'd love to pick your brain to see what kind of masterful witchcraft you've come up with. What I have isn't terribly complex, but I think it is functional and not...

    Lol you don't want to reference my thread... Hahaha, funny enough Iam the guy that messaged you on Instagram asking about your background just the other day. You thinking about doing something of the sort, with regards to the strut tower? @eimkeith

    Don't mind my ignorance on the threads here. I'm a freshie to the forum, but I would be remiss if I didn't admit to myself that I have almost no motivation to get onto T4R anymore. It's like a ghost town. I'll be updating as soon as I get these parts cut out for both sides here shortly. I'm...

    Thanks! Once this is done, installed, and running.... I want to get started on some stock width LCA's. I remember seeing some stuff that you ended up designing either on t4r or elsewhere. I have garnered some inspiration from several LT LCA's including your own. Have you progressed with them...
