Using a reciprocating saw, we cut off the 2x3 box frame connector, leaving just a stub on the rear crossmember. This will be ground down and smoothed out before the new frame pieces are welded in place.Using a reciprocating saw, we cut off the 2x3 box frame connector, leaving just a stub on We didn't forget to pull out all of the wire from under the dash, either. With half the floor's sheetmetal gone, the Chassisworks frame connector was exposed. Note how it was still attached to some original flooring, and how it was welded in at an angle in order to line up with the factory unibody mounts. Our new frame section will run parallel with the rocker panels when tying together the front and rear frames.With half the floor's sheetmetal gone, the Chassisworks frame connector was exposed. Note Again, since our original intention was to do this at home and use rectangular box tubing to tie the frames together, we made this template using a 2x4 piece of wood. It worked perfectly. So, if you plan to tackle this job yourself, remember this trick. Just be sure to keep the car on a flat surface and don't let the front clip move in relationship to the rest of the car.Again, since our original intention was to do this at home and use rectangular box tubing In our quest to complete this part of the project ourselves, as mentioned above, we chose some state-of-the-art welding and cutting equipment from HTP America. And while the MIG 160 and Micro Cut 250 are perfect for the home shop, we also took them to Hot Cars Cool Trucks for the fabricators there to use. And although we haven't yet got to use the MIG, we did assemble the wheels to make it easier for the guys in Vegas to roll it around.In our quest to complete this part of the project ourselves, as mentioned above, we chose SOURCES Hot Cars Cool Trucks 1180 Center Point St. Henderson NV 89014 Dept.
