It takes quite a setup to TIG doors or body panels. Harder to localize heat. I think the only time I've seen it done was with basically a circle of damp cloth surrounding the area, and it still needed beating and lead afterwards.

 

Digging the color scheme.

Been a minute since the last update, work has been crazy busy so I havent had much time to go to the shop.

I've been playing around with fusion and decided I was going to make my own sway bar brackets. The design and 3d prints of the parts prior took abit of time, once I was happy with it, everything was cut from aluminum. Looking at it now I'm thinking I may make a second version thats a bit thicker. I still need to cut and bend the top peice but I ran out of time this weekend.

That's a great idea, you could probably sell a fair number of those. Maybe with some tubes to sink through the rails to prevent crushing them.

I had thought about tossing a tube in there but ended up not doing it just because I havent had time to run to any metal supplier and with the current situation they're typically closed before I'm done work. I'm planning on inspecting these occasionally and if I see a good bit of flex i'll either add the tubing as suggested or bump up the material thickness by .125in. To be fair though the rona will probably be gone by the time I have this on the road. 😅
