Front skids all trimmed up and fit.
Bolted the rear on. Put some heat to it to bend it.
No go. Dang!
We will build it if it comes.MikeKParticipantDecember 13, 2022 at 8:51 amPost count: 300
Turn on just the acetylene and deposit soot on the part of the panel you want to bend. Add oxygen for a neutral flame and burn off all of the soot. That will leave the panel annealed. It should be soft as butter after that. I’d use a large tip or even a cutting head since it’s so thick.Pat KParticipantDecember 13, 2022 at 10:42 amPost count: 2933
Thanks Mike! I was hoping someone would chime in.
Tried the soot on the back side. Never got hot enough for it to burn off. Larger tip is probably the key. Heat up that area a lot quicker.

Dzus tab fitting and welding for the splash panels up front yesterday.
Thanks MikeK! Couple clamps and the cutting torch did the job to get the rear skid bent into shape.

Glad it worked out. It’s amazing his soft AL gets after annealing.Pat KParticipantDecember 18, 2022 at 10:21 amPost count: 2933
Trimmed up the tail end of the rear skid for a better fit.
Adding some sparkles to this ass today! Rear light bar mount fab. Brakes, signals, amber safety light, and blue/green safety lights all in one.
