Looking for the two arm rests that go behind the driver seat for the middle and rear bench seats for a 71 deluxe bus. They can be scratched up. I can paint them.

well main hoop and "A" bars are in and about 1/3 welded at each point outa gas so tacked and 2 sections of weld at each point.
now can put it back up onto jack stands ,that will make welding a bit easier not being so low and now everything is tacked when all wheels on the ground , much better.

 hey no 8.50 cert cage here


like the rest of the roll bar the new cage upgrade is as hidden as it can be .its friggen in there tight .
from the frt ,not the best shot but under normal light bars blend in .


this shows the tight fit ,can be done just takes time and some good planning .pain in the ass actually.


yep snakes there pretty good .

hopefully will Finnish welding these 4 points then will weld in the "D" bars .
for all you tig welders .welding the chromoly 0.083" wall tube is easy like I said 83 amp zone .
but welding to a 0.120" wall mild steel cage or even worse floor plates not so easy as you are dealing with 2 different size materials as well as major heat dissipation
tried with 83-90 amps disaster .needed to set to 120m amps .start puddle at floor plates or mild steel roll bar and let puddle wick up to new cage tapering off to 107-110 amps
any way hope everyone is safe and off to the weld shop for a refill .

Need it gone ASAP.
