I have a Canadian X-Frame from a 64 Impala that i want to have the stress points wrapped on. What's the average cost? Also, Can someone tell me all the major stress points on that frame? THANX IN ADVANCE.

Don't waste your money on a stress point because all you are doing is asking for problems down the road, do it right the first time then forget about it. Every area you wrap puts stress on the areas that are not. Just get the whole frame wrapped bro. :biggrin: Eric.

a canadian frame is already boxxed the full length, right? then plating it the full length would be nearly as easy as doing sections only.assuming whoevers welding doesnt mind taking his time

Well before you go and spend 3G's on a Complete full frame wrap, what are you trying to do. Just street ride, or Competition hop. It does make a difference.

Cause that shit is hella expensive. Especially with the price of Metal skyrocketing like gas. It can get very expensive. If the person was just cruising the streets, with a little play sometimes then there is not need to spend all the money on a full frame wrap. Just my.02. I feel ya though.

Yeah there is no need in doing a "stress point" reinforcement. Everything you dont reinforce becomes twice as weak as it was before. Creating NEW Stress Points. Do it right. You'll be glad you did.
