It's pretty amazing how much can be done with very limited tools. Though sometimes, you invest into a new tool that becomes a total game changer in the work you do. It's crazy to look back at the early days of me doing sheet metal and trying to tell people that the shops that embraced and tooled up for it would shine above the others. This Mittler Brothers bead roller has certainly made a huge impact on the tin work I do, but it's just a tool. Useless in the wrong hands. The masterpieces come from the imagination and drive of the character behind the tool. The strive to make each piece better, and the hunger for knowledge to learn more.

This little EVO2 Grunt is leaving with many of our most popular options. The sheet metal front end has the radiator support, shock mounts, orbital mount, steering cooler mount, and overflow tank mount all integrated into one easy option. Add the subframes with suspension mounts, skidplate kit, BFR profile bumper, brake pedal mount, floor supports, and seat mounts... and your that much closer to using those dimpled steps to help your chick get in for a ride!

The little Grunt chassis has room for an LS and is the size of a Side by Side, and it can be setup with as much as 24" of travel! Best of all, it comes with support from me to help answer questions you might have along the way of finishing it out. If you think you might need one for your winter project, hit me up!

It's always fun when we get the oppertunity to see a project go from concept to turn key all in house. When the vision or theme can be completely carried through the work from start to finish, it makes a HUGE impact. The RZRKILLER was completed years ago and continues to have people ask about it all the time. If your looking to build something that stands out above the rest, I'd love to help make it a reality.

The making of a panel.

Lots of people are always interested in what it takes to build your panels for interiors, and really, it isn't so much about the tools you have as to the forethought you've done before you start in both your tubework and your design. Because no matter how good you are, if your nodes in your tubework doesn't line up to make a single plane on the face of the tubes, things get difficult quickly.

I use something called single ply chipboard to make my templates, the template is the key to success. You can find it in most craft stores and its pretty easy to work with. Having enough structure to hold its shape and score for bends while being easily cutable with a razor and scissors. Your going to want to spend the time it takes to really get the fit exactly right. If the template fits like shit, how do you expect your panel to fit any better? Since often enough, your panel won't even fit until it actually fits in its location, you might have to start out with a smaller section and get a few angles started, then add to the template till you have a complete pattern. Since taped together pieces tend to be sloppy, take the time to transfer your multi piece template over to one sheet and fine tune any edges.

Once your template is made, the panel should be no problem. It's really just tracing the template and being exact with your cuts to make sure it's exactly the same. To save on material, I usually plasma out the rough shape. This gives you the oppertunity to oversize around holes you might choose to use a hole saw on before shearing the edge. Tools like a flap wheel on a grinder, big files like a horseshoe rasp, deburing tools, as well as smaller hand shears, and nibblers all help get your shape. We worked for a long time without our stomp shear, and bead roller, but no doubt these tools help make a nicer product and speed things along.

Here's another sequence of building a simple floor panel.

Getting some work done on a Saturday. Today's project was a hood for a GRUNT AT we have in the shop. The idea is to keep as much visability as I could on this little crawler. With a rear radiator and being able to see through the shock hoops, I think this might fit the bill.

Template, plasma, shear, notch, adjust fit, layout your design, drill for dimples, bead roll, bend, dimple, sand... embrace the process, love the process.. enjoy the process.

Matt Taylor started talking to me a while back about a new 4800 car to stay competitive. When I showed him the new EVO3 we had plans for, he was quick to jump on the idea. Armed with full CAD models of everything before we started, it's been very cool watching this project come together. Take our EVO3(R) 2" chassis and stuff it with the best products Spidertrax Off-Road can supply, cool kid bracketry from us for the suspension, motivate it with 408 cubic inches of Ford power mated to a 4l80e and Hero 3 speed... this thing is going to be one to keep an eye on! It's going to go home for a while, but will be coming back for some bitchin tin work soon. So stay tuned!
