I want to make scrape plates, with either a blue, green, or red spark. What should I use, alot of people say titanium but i dont know what color the sparks would be... Also I need to know the best place to install them on a Cutlass (frame, bumper?).

I've heard Titanium gives a white spark, very brilliant.

I think it's magnesium that gives a red spark, I could be totally wrong though

lead wouldn't really make any sparks cuz its so soft it would just tear up more than anything......

titanium will give you bright white sparks. and it will give you longer sparks. not too sure where to install them but one thing for sure is that you need to make a mounting plate so that you can bolt in new pieces when the old ones wear out. i think thats alot better than welding in new pieces each time u want to change the plates. :thumbsup:

ps. check all lines to make sure you have no leaks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! sparks and fuel do not mix

It depends when you want to throw the sparks. Do you want the sparks when you drop the front or when you drop the rear? If it is the front then I would fab a bracket to the cross member and on the back you could fab something that goes across the frame rails. Just my opinion.

yea just dont use magnesium like homeboy above said it has a real low flash point and once it catches fire it burns fast and takes everything with it and no water will put it out

titanium is the only (safe) way to go.


it cools very fast, so after each scrape it dont stay hot.
