Hello everyone :cheesy: !

I'm just about to make a few repairs to my car's chassis (1967 Oldsmobile Delta 88) before I start my air suspension project and I would like to find out the gauge of metal to use. It is for the chassis rails just on front of the rear wheels, where it starts to rise up over the rear axle.

It looks like approximately 2 - 2.5mm in thickness to me. I expect you would specify it differently because I'm in England :cool: , but I'll be able to convert it into metric :angry: :cheesy: :biggrin: .

Thanks

i would go with no less than 6mm..
thats the standard most use for reinforcing their frames here..

it may seem heavy, but hey, you'll only have to do it once..

Thanks for the reply :cheesy: .

I'm only going to repair some rust, rather than reinforce the chassis, so I want to use the same gauge as the original chassis.

I can see why 6mm would be a good idea for some lowriders, considering what they have to go through :0 :biggrin: !
