PRICE FOR THE STEEL, DO IT YOURSELF OR HAVE SOMEONE THAT WELDS HELP YOU, DON'T PAY SOMEONE TO DO JUST YOUR HUMPS. ;)

yea when i do the humps i dont know how far bak to go i guess i gotta see a car that has it done and get an idea from that wut i was thinking is make a template of the humps and some of the frame and get it cut and find someone that welds .....but wut about the front would i need it if i 3wheel and do alittle bit of hopping?cause the front u gotta heat the metal to bend around the frame thats why i was thinking 2 of just paying still dont know i still got some time to think................

ADDING METAL IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!
BUT YES YOU CAN HOP A LITTLE, AND 3 WHEEL WITH NO RENFORCEMENT. I'M JUST NOW STRAPPING MY FRAME, AND MY LINCOLN HAS HAD A 2 PUMP SET-UP ON IT FOR ALMOST 4 YEARS NOW. AND THE ONLY REASON I'M DOING IT NOW IS CAUSE I'M ADDING A 3RD PUMP.
ANYONE CAN TELL YOU FOR A SIMPLE 2 PUMP SET-UP YOU DON'T HAVE TO STRAP YOUR FRAME, JUST DON'T ABUSE IT OR YOUR FRAME WILL BE THE LEAST OF YOUR WORRIES. ;)

fora basic reinforcement with the body on u should do the outsides of the rear humps all the way along to the rear bumper if possible its also advisable to do the insides of the centre sections as this is the weakest part of the frame in my opinion ,the more reinforcements you do the better just remember when you reinforce a stress point the stress will then move to the next weakest place but the stress will intensify
