I get the 'revision' mentality as I started my first DIY frame w/that thinking in mind (the 2nd time corrects deficiency's from the 1st attempt). That being said, that's a bunch of work accomplished only to switch designs. I prob would have struggled w/that decision .

Awesome fab work & I even stayed after work just to watch a couple of your You-Tube videos. I think you're doing awesome & like how your approach is when explaining things. I'm in DFW as well. If you ever need a hand... don't hesitate to reach out. You never know when some extra labor will come in handy.
Ditching Rev1 was a tough call, and I had to get there in increments. Ultimately, it's about doing the most right thing for the car, and this stronger, more rigid frame made the most sense; even if it meant sacrificing a year of fab work. This is going to be a 100,000 mile car, and it's worth the stretch.

I'm really glad you enjoyed the videos. They're a lot of fun to make.

I'm learning a lot along the way, and am glad to be able to share it. Lots of fun work ahead.

Thank you, sir. She's a good pup, and keeps an eye out when I'm under the hood.

Appreciate that. Sometimes little edit sequences like that just fall into place.

Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it - always going for a balance of entertaining and informative.

Lots to go. I'm somewhat stuck on progress while we finish up a remodel on our 1916 bungalow, so I'm using this time to render the video I have into a few good episodes.

Fresh episode covering the prep necessary to move to the Rev2 chassis.



Most of us, at some point or another, realize they could have built some part of our project car better. If were lucky, its just a bracket or maybe a floor panel, and we can remake that piece without too much trouble. For me, it was the entire frame and chassis. That presented a choice compromise, keep the last twelve months of work and continue moving forward, or build it again; this time at a higher level of quality.

Quality first.

David

David.....Hi from Down Under!

The above link to Ep. 2 is broke.
Searched YouTube to watch it just now......WELL WORTH THE TIME......weirdly professional in the vid production, even tho it's prolly your secondary priority.
As a fabricator, I feel your pain, but am well aware that fabrication goes like that quite often.
As an ex-GM Holden body group CAD designer, and Ford prototype contractor, I can't reinforce your opinion highly enough regarding laser/waterjetting blanks and having them brake pressed to give the BEST POSSIBLE foundation for a project.......even smaller brackets and panels. STRAIGHT FLAT AND SQUARE.

You have prolly heard that GM axed Holden Division last week....it was great while it lasted.

Looking fwd to future episodes......

Thanks, Beechy. That link should work, now.

Im really glad you enjoyed the episode, and yes, it was a tough call, but necessary. Its been the right thing, and will yield better results on the road.

David
