    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!

    Why not use the rear half from the original frame? Everything is all set, splice is easy.

  • Flashrocket Chapman

    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.

    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.

  • Scott Simmons

    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....

  • RC Hobbyist Extreme

    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

    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

  • Easy_S
    Easy_S 2 months ago

    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.

    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 😜😉

    HEY ALEX! If you are drilling a lot of metal.......... get yourself a Drill Doctor! 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 :)

    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!

    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?

  • William Powell

    We're denim when grinding and welding. Canvas works well too. The best though is leather.

  • Mondo357

    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

  • Clayton Hill

    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

  • Curtis Fisher
    Curtis Fisher 2 months ago

    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

    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..

  • Steve Garmier
    Steve Garmier 2 months ago

    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.
