New Front End

DSC_0011.jpg (182262 bytes)

Just roughing in the new steel front end.  You can see the first cross member in place between the 2 Main rails from the existing frame.  Another section of  11 gauge 2x2 steel intersects the cross member making a T connection and extending out 4 feet in front of the trailer.  Now I need to Cut the diagonal struts from steel and tack everything in place for the welder to come weld it all up.

This Cutoff Saw made cutting the steel a snap.

I cleaned up the welds with the Drumel tool and a cutting wheel
