Not surprising, this is why mine will be a foam core. Cored structures, especially when using CF, are extremely strong. Next winter is just going to be a lot testing. Not to sidetrack from Rick's thread, but here's a good link http://www.diabgroup.com/americas/u_..._Marine_TB.pdf I have more links if you're interested, CF is some amazing stuff.

Glad to see you made it over here Revster, your detailed threads are always fun to read. TY is reminding me too much of Snowest so hopefully more will come over and read/comment on the thread here.

I didn't really do much on the sled tonight, had other stuff I had to do. But I got my old sled brought in to the shop to pull the engine out.

R.I.P.


Since I'm a little kid and have to play around.
Hows it look? Nytro R

OK, Back to the build.

Spent all evening working on the left side upper A arm, this part is not fun at all and very time consuming. But I'm going to spend as much time as I have to so the jig ends up perfect.

I tried to measure up and tack the bar in place, but found it was going to be too hard to get it perfect.

So I ended up making a Jig for the Jig.

Using multiple squares and levels to measure up for my template.


Then I started to lay out the template. It is very hard to see the scribes so I did some very crappy drawing and will do the best I can to describe the process of laying it out.

I first used the squares to find my distance from center of the the edge of each mount and layed the distances off of center on the sheet. Then since it is compounding angles (going up and in) there are multiple ways to figure out my actual length but the easiest way is to measure the outside of the mounts and scribe a radius with that measurement on the metal. Then where those points intersect is my actual length.

Then I did the same on the other side and connected the 4 points getting me a exact template of my front mounts.

I'm sure this didn't make any sense but you cant blame me for not trying lol

Its made out of .100" so I used a skill saw to cut the straight sides


Then I added tabs that will hold the template on top and also will be able to scribe them and locate my mounting blocks. Cut out the rest using a Jig saw.


New template on the jig, I will add some square tubing to the bottom tomorrow to act as guides and stiffen it up. Then I will be able to camp it to both sides, level it up and weld my left side in place.


This was a really time consuming project but will be worth it. I am planning on having to do the same thing on the lower mounts as well but it will be a lot easier to lay out.

Finally after about 8 hours worth of work I got the left upper A arm mount in place.

Jig in place clamped to my Right side mount and with the tube for the left clamped in place.

Then I just had to level it, tack it, check it again and finish weld it. I have not been welding any more than I have to, to reduce the amount of heat put into the jig and keep it from warping. Everything is made heavy so I only need a 1/2" or so of weld per side.

Upper A arm mounts done!!!


All of the blocks for my mounts are marked so then I will just bolt them on once I get the sled out of the jig.

Tomorrow I will get the left lower mount done. Not sure If I will have to jig that one but if I do it will be a lot simpler.

Once thats done I will be lowering the sled back down into the Jig. Then a couple more mounts for the bottom of the chassis, steering hoop, steering mounts, Drive shaft, and the stock motor mount jig (just in case) and the jig will be done. Stoked to get the a arm mounts done since everything else will be simple.
