Ok I have started

Started by making my front frame jig
Would be so much easier to buy one but the wife has ordered I do the whole thing myself so thats what I will do

I would recommend reading the front frame tutorial if you havent already.

Mock up the positions of the front suspension brackets on your jig. Getting the widths right is the most important thing on the front frame.

Not even thought about suspension brackets yet will have to get some sorted out soon

Finished cutting and jigging my front frame today was really pleased with myself till i came to tack it up and the wire just sat on the surface in a big horrible blob started checking the welder to find the gas regulator has packed in

Off to the shops for a new one this week I think

Smiles today after I had a ride over to nts to see nathan who kindly lent me a regulator

Was able to finally get my front frame tacked up measured and fully welded up just gotta finish grinding the welds flat and thats done so I have now started cutting the base rails

Want to say a huge thanks to nathan who is a genuinely nice guy
