    I wasn't gonna do it, because the kit came with a 4-link truss, and was planning to save all the axle-brazing, for future Metalhead axles. But I just couldn't stop thinking about the plastic 4-link truss.

    Had to start on some:



    Also made the grill gaurd. Man that was hard to bend, and try to make it symetrical. It just barely is. My excuse for anything brazed crooked; It will get bent after some tumbles anyway:



    Hope to have all three done and mounted tomorrow. We'll see.

    Thanx. I'm liking it so far. The brazing is really impressing me with, "If ya take your time, it'll turn out". And learning new things all the time. Such as when you clamp down the brakeline to hold part in place, then the heat fron brazing red's up the metal making it softer, and the clamping device leaves slightly crushed tubing.

    The truss at the back was the one I learned the above on. You just make out where the rod-ends bolt to, that the tube is ovalish. The one in front came out as planned:





    And posing them:



    This is as far as I can go until I make a body, get my transmission and drive bits in, so I can figure out some roll cage tubing.

    Thanx all.

    Yes, square tube, then cut off what's not needed, then file like mad.
