    Wrapping a X frame with pre-cut pieces
    Looking for the company that makes lazer cut pieces to wrap a complete frame, Somebody at my job saw this on a tv show like Overhaulin' and he told me they sell this as a complete "puzzle" set... there's even marked place to weld fisrt with a plan so that the frame won't tweak...

    Anybody heard of that company? Anybody knows how's the kit? Is it good? parts missing to do a complete job?

    (Looking to wrap a 61-64 X frame)

    Thanks for your help! Any comments are appreciated...

    I gotta go cause I got me a drop top... And if I hit the switch, I can make the ass drop...

    He said they are complete PM him for more details, i think its around 1200 for the kit. Well worth not having to cut or clean up edges before welding

    if the plates are lazer cut or plasma cut it wont matter since you still are gonna melt the ends of the plate away with welding them onto the frame and ur gonna grind them down..so why waste the money

    you can wrap a frame up in a day and half..2 at most if ur really working on it...and u can lift a car in a day...personally i tend to work slow and efficient...that way nothing gets over looked and not rushed

    Yes... I'm not in a hurry... not at all... I was just curious if it was worth it... since I'm far... guess the shipping fees and cash exchange are gonna kill me...

    Guess I should study a couple a build up threads... You know any good recent one? well detailed?

    Thanks again...

    I saw a kit like that on horsepower or some car show that is on every sunday on spike tv. it was lazer cut but only 1/8 thick. its intended purpose on that show was just to strengthen the frame for ahigh hp engine and not hopping.
