    RE: Just another sand rail project....! lol

    it is 3/16 rod i got 4 of them at 4 ft long i was gonna try with map gas and like you said its a long process i am gonna invest in a torch that will take less time. i am also thinking of trying to get a bender unless you can recomend another way, how did you bend your frame?btw i like hummer very nice
    yes its fast, no you cant drive it!

    if you can control it, its to slow

    Doug, you can bend metal after stuffing sand in the tubes and warming the area that you wish to bend.

    RE: Just another sand rail project....! lol

    he is using solid 3/16 rod i think...

    i did a rollcage for my lst2 and i brazed it using a oxy-mapp torch, it took a couple bottles of oxygen but worked good.
    to make bends at first i used a brake line bender but for small pieces and tight bends it doesnt work.
    i put a peice of metal tube in a vice and made my bends on it.

    hope it helps, i will let bottlefed correct me if im wrong, cuz he did an amazing job with that sandrail !
    My worst nightmare is that after I die, my wife sells all my RC stuff for what I told her I paid for it.

    Oxy map works great...... There's a small kit that home depot sell for pretty cheap...and as far as the rod, I used solid throughout. Heating the bends allows for a tighter bend and more precision, u can also cold bend for a little bigger radius, and for larger radius bends glow bout a 3" area and stretch across a dye. Hope this helps... U guys are getting me all exited to build another one... Lol like I don't already have enough projects going!

    Man... that is a slick looking Honda, especially with the mesh wheels. I normally don't like tuned imports, but yours looks fantastic and really clean. Now you just need to shave the doors and use poppers. Props dude.
