Re: >>>LACKLUSTER<<< Custom BO-07 extended rockers.
My son is here for the summer, up from San Diego, and he wanted to ride his Firestone next to LACKLUSTER. I told him I couldn't ride it until its fixed. He said "well fix it", so off to Sonoma we went (to the shop). On a side note, he also said he wants to be a member here. So tomorrow I will set him up as Critter Jr.
I was in rocker-mod mode!!
Started off by using some red dye and scribed the outline of the template on some 1/8" steel.
Once I got both templates cut out, I beveled the edges on both sides for good weld penetration.
Ready to weld.
At first i just spot welded so I could check them next to each other. They were off a little (as you can see in the pic) so I ground the edges side by side to match them perfectly. I also used this opportunity to locate the center of the new axle mount location and drilled a 1/8" hole through both.
All welded up! Time to grind... After both sides were ground smooth, I stacked them side by side again and finished drilling the axle holes and made the slots.
I had to logo them with our BO-07 :mrgreen: (The 7 is an upside down L but whatevs..
Tomorrow I'll fit them to LACKLUSTER & see how it goes.. I should now have about an inch clearance between the Jerald slick and fender. Whoo hoo!
