    Thought this info might be useful to some new builders.

  2. That's a good video! Straight forward, simple explanations, talking through the steps one at a time. Following the KISS philosophy...
    Thanks for sharing.

    Did you drill through the sleeves and dimple the threaded inserts before rosette welding the holes?

    Yes, sorry it wasn't made clear there, but that is why I was concerned about the threads in the bungs.

    Hey! Why's the T shirt still clean?
    Mine usually fills with steel grindings and definately would've gotten a few burn holes!
    Good Job!

    Very nicely done. You can actually
    understand what is being said. Good
    photography. Definitely a keeper.
    Thank you, Matt

    Thanks Matt,
    The compliment is appreciated
    I'll pass along a page link to Paul who shot it, I'm sure he'll appreciate the comments too, he really wanted to do something quick and clean that might help some people finish their projects.

  11. Great job on your video I had just posted today I had planned to weld my bungs but now that I have seen the video I undestand it better. What size tubing did you use for the sleeve for the bungs.

    Great video what is the next video.

    Thanks

    Nice video. Clear and simple. I know you didn't mean to use a file without a handle.

    Frenchy,
    There are a few ways to go about this part of it depending on the materials you have available to you.
    I used moly for the sleeves because we had it lying around but keep in mind moly isn't as a workable as mild steel. It can become brittle and crack which isn't so much the issue as a sleeve in this application; it is the shaping of sleeve that could induce cracks. So keep that in mind.
    If your going to use mild steel the tubing size isn't so critical because mild steel is easily worked into shape. But if tubing isn't available for the size you need, mild steel plate is an option. Pick up a piece of 1-inch wide steel stock in the thickness you need and pound it over something round to make your sleeve, preferably not the threaded bungs
    Measure the outside diameter(OD) of your threaded bungs and the inside diameter(ID) of your wishbone. Subtract the ID from the OD. In my case the difference was 0.100-inch, so I used a .050-inch, wall thickness, piece of tubing that had a slightly larger ID then my threaded bungs.
    I do it this way because the welded seam inside of the wishbone often interferes with the sleeve, that's the reason for the split sleeve, because the slit is a relief for the welded seam of the wishbone.

    I hope I helped without getting too wordy.
    Have a great time building your Hot Rod.

    The sleeve process is very handy! I've used it for many things, and never toss out small pieces of tubing or pipe, just for that reason.

    Thank You for the great video I will be going today to get a small stock of this tubing I am doing the same thing you are doing. I will keep my eyes open for the next video.

    Thanks

    Good luck with the build.

    Great job Michael (and Paul), the second vid is great too.
    A great way to highlight the builders and their work.
    I'm looking forward to seeing more like this.

    Glad to see it's going to be helping some people out. Best of luck with the project.
     
  25. Because only guys like us would watch it. Would your wife watch something techinical like this? Mine wouldn't. I think most people who watch that shit don't have old cars/bikes; they'd rather see some loudmouth yell at his son.
