I will be transferring it tomorrow. I went to the DMV on Friday after lunch and the damn like would have taken 2 hours to get through.I'm glad to see my former $800 SPG is getting such attention. Have you transferred the title yet?
Don't you want to treat the rust on the metal you're not removing, even it's just to slow it down and prevent migration to the new metal? Even if not POR-15, just some regular "rust-prevention" paint might help out some.
As far as rust prevention, I decided against treating it ahead of time because I would have just burned it off when welding it. I will be using sealing it all up with etch primer or epoxy primer, and P.O.R.-15 before putting it all back together. Then I will undercoat the whole damn thing.
No, I will not make any files, and I will start from scratch the next time I attempt this project (as I should have done this time) in order not to step on anyone's toes.dude thats great! you should make up a .pdf or CAD file of that piece so the rest of us dont have to dick around with making it the right size...please? :lol:
looks like an easier fix than i initially thought it would be, especially if we have a template :wink: :lol:
However if I do this again I will make my own template that will be based off of the shape of the bottom of a c900 in the control arm area, and this file will be public.
Also, its worth noting that I did not make my piece exactly the same as the design of the company that makes these professionally for profit and for the betterment of the rusty car community. My piece was only 18" long, whereas the safe-t-cap is more like 2 feet. The reason I did that was because the steel I bought was only 18" long. I just left off a bit from either end.
Thanks! I was impressed that it came out that well. And with those tabs bent over it really felt like a pretty strong piece. Now that its welded in place, and with the other pieces welded in place it seems really, really strong.Looks like you have been spending alot of time in the garage. That piece came out awesome. Nice work!
I'll have to get the car airborne when I'm all done and see how it holds up.
