Really great work Alex. I'm so impressed with your commitment to using factory parts and methodology. So many people will use whatever bolt or rivet they have on hand. Ordering the OEM parts takes discipline. You're awesome!
Go too a welding shop and buy your clothing for welding and grinding
Why not use the rear half from the original frame? Everything is all set, splice is easy.
Hola me gustaría arreglar mi tacoma 2014 me hicieron un trabajo muy mal 🤕😔😔amo my tacoma
We’re do I buy this kit at?
What goingbon with this truck
If your going to be grinding, I suggest a full face shield, Denim Pants, Steel Toe Boots, and better yet, a Welding Jacket and Gloves, as well as a non flammable cap such as a baseball cap. And depending on what else goes on in the shop, Earplugs are a must. If there happens to be any welding that goes on in your shop, such as Welding or Plasma Cutting, invest in a welding curtain.
Denim and watch fire.
What's wrong with your face
Get some cintas pants and shirts they will wash them for you weekly so I'd get 9 or 10 pairs of pants and shirts
Damp welding protective gear
I think they're called jeans man. Jeans. They sell them everywhere.
Are you going to sale the truck when you're done
I watched the first episode. Vowed to stop and wait untill the whole series is over. I want to binge watch this one.
1. Put the disc on the grinder the right way up! 2. For the love of god put the Guard back on the grinder!3. Buy your self some proper work clothes and you wouldn’t burn.
Jeans. FR jeans would be even better. They are a little more expensive but they will last longer. Also you should consider wearing a FR shirt too or welding smock/apron, and a face shield. You don't want to lose an eye. Grinders are extremely dangerous if not used correctly.
I smell a Milwaukee tool sponsor coming- ran out of Batteries....
Using cordless tools where you have access to power is pretty silly. When I took welding classes we had leather chaps to prevent sparks from burning up your clothes. You young kids today really amaze me.
Overalls be a good thing to use whilst grinding and the sticker faces inwards on the grinder mate good to see your having a go thou but yeah I wouldn't be leaving all of them brackets with just bolts thou I would be getting onto a good welder to weld it all up nothing worse then g ping down the road and all it hard work falling apart better still all your money going down the drain and it's not a safe thing either
Drill doctors are great for sharing bits instead of tossing them or needing to run to the store.
Lol it’s all fixable even the frame u just can’t do it lmao
Also use the shroud with the grinder regardless of disc type used
Please for your sake (safety) use the grinding disc and cutting discs label up (towards the tool)
Carhartt welding pants
Just find "FR" Ware for your clothing
You should sharpen you used drill bits it is very easy and keep up the good work 😎
You can sharpen yer drill bits eh, are you selling on the twisted frame as the rear section should still be good.
BLAKLADER - safe and comfy safety pants
Cotton or FR clothing for grinding or welding
Wow when you’re doing the Sponsors merchandise take a breath, God damn you got me use my asthma pump
Not welding the c notches ? 😅
You need to listen to these older gentlemen, I think they are gentlemen, but safety clothes is a must. Cotton workclothes and get some fire-retardant clothing for grinding. These are cotton clothes with a fire retardant added to the weave. It does wash out after about 20 washes but it will protect you during grinding operations. Also there is available welding sleeves for putting on your arms during welding to protect the arm from splatter. Just saying.. Love watching you videos and the progress on the vehicles.

Looking at the old frame they obviously welded up the seems , I would go with the same idea , like you say it's just going to peel the powder coat off anyway and you cant really weld it once its coated , you are doing good keep it up
Alex, I think you should get a professional to help you with this. It's pretty clear you don't really have any idea what you are doing and if you continue this will become a very dangerous vehicle. If you're taking on a job like this you have to know how to weld or know someone who can because you can't just bolt stuff on (actually I find a bolt-in notch kit beyond believe, stuff like that needs to get boxed out and welded for rigidity), you have to know how a grinder works, you have to know where lock washers go or use Loctite (threadlocker), etc. I know it's tempting to try to make a career out of restoring/modifying vehicles, everybody seems to be doing that nowadays, but you gotta know what's what. Otherwise you'll end up with a dangerous piece of equipment that could kill someone. Imho what you are making now is not safe.
What grade of bolts are you using? I guess you need it to be rock solid of course! I remember this build. Shawn
100% cotton blankets won't burn. Same with pants get some jeans
How much did that step notch kit run you Alex?
He "grinded" and "fitted". This is the same as watching your kid do paint by numbers 😂If you drilled the wrong hole " we'd be pretty much screwed".I'm guessing you can't handle a torch by your grinding skills so welding a hole closed and re drilling is out of the question and you'd be looking for another frame LOL 😜😉
Just get yourself a pair of blue jeans bud or just dont ware pants at all then you can't burn them
Haven't heard of coveralls?
HEY ALEX! If you are drilling a lot of metal.......... get yourself a Drill Doctor! www.drilldoctor.com/ I was skeptical at first, but after I got it, damn it works good for keeping my bits sharp! Keep up the great work! And no, I am in no way offiliated with Drill Doctor :)
That would be not sweat pants pretty boy.
What about all the bare metal your covering up behind those brackets.to me thats potential issue down road unless just off it and pocket cash an no worries.
Welding jacket , gloves and proper eye protective glasses, 501 Levi blue jeans 👖 and a welding blanket , ear plugs 👍🏾
Get on with it
When you trimmed the frame you left stress risers that will lead to cracking this can be dangerous down the road! You need to learn a few things before performing things like major framework. Please consult an expert before continuing!
Hey alex ur grinder wheel has being put on up side down ,dickhead
Fire resistant pants they use them in the oil fields that should help you they're called FR. Carhartt makes them too
Buy some FR coveralls. Oil field workers have to wear them.
Go buy some clothes like big bill or dickies work clothes. FP clothe (fire proof)
Never had Levi's ever catch fire...
Along with what everyone else has mention I would like to add. Why are the lock washers on the head of the bolts and not by the thread where you thread the nuts onto the bolts?
We're denim when grinding and welding. Canvas works well too. The best though is leather.
Carhartt FR Clothing, also you probably had to remove your sparks shield from the grinder because you installed the disk backwards the label should be facing up not away from u also face shield when grinding
Yes she can try call Hart's Dickies pants.. or try from a welder's supply store.. Harbor Freight makes blankets too as well
While grinding you might think about getting a face shield to perfect you from the sparks. Also the black part of the grinding wheel should face the material you are grinding or cutting
Why not weld them in? Looks cleaner and stronger...
Why are you not using tools that are not cordless?? Cordless is nice some times but not when the battery dies.... More power= more work
I would had weld the frame pieces together than powder coat it. Maybe an good investment to get yourself an grinder with an cord and full face shield mask. and jeans will help but if you dont like wearing jeans (I know some people dont like them) buy an welding apron instead
For your sparks problem try fitting a guard to the grinder
When I removed those heavy "hot rivets" from a frame I shortened, I used an air hammer with a chisel. And ear protection.
Welder's blanket, Dicky's work pants.
Alex I love watching your videos. I have to say that your lock washers were installed on the wrong side for some of your bolts. I'm not being a hater just thought I'd mention it. Keep up the awesome projects.
Good job that's going to be a really nice ride.
Keep up the good work all the way from Australia
I didn't even watch this video. Thanks to the self made commercial in the beginning
All those bolts scare me, weld all the joints... and wear some jeans lol... you can use welding blankets they’re made of fiberglass you can find them at harbor freight like your vise grips... and use oil for your drill bits..
He gouges the hell out of the new part of the frame. Why didn't u take a sharpie and mark the lines take the bolts out then cut it? This was u didn't do that. Then like others are saying weld the shit out of all that. It's already a flimsy frame without it being boxed. Gotta give u some props tho just jumping in like this without ever doing it before i would've been having a panic attack lol. That's a lot of money that can easily be ruined.
Dickies pants work good an you can pick them up at Walmart pretty cheep an a good FR shirt
Be a man and buy some jeans. Not skinny jeans either. Denim wont burn when sparks hit it. Your work quality is shit. Weld the frame, dont just bolt it together. Do you even know what youre doing?
Use a "kiss the cook" apron ! Has a super duper fire retardant coating and truck will smell like backyard bar-b- Q yum yum 😋 also will double ur views .
Sweat shirt material is not pants...
just buy a good pear of jeans
FR are Jeans from the Frdepot.com
