Aight I am a few days away from ordering all my shit from KP (klint is the man btw). I have been looking at pics of the 8 piece notch installed and the thing looks sloppy when its done with all the over hang. Does anyone make a prewelded box tubing notch with a precompensated bend for the NBS frame angles?

I already have a bolt in notch so I was just going to do this:

* leave in the bolt on notch for support
* support frame before and after notch
* cut two slits in top of frame
* slide the box tubing notch down into the slits
* weld the shit out of the inside and around the lips
* remove bolt on notch and cut out remaining section
* weld around the cut out portion of the frame.

Seem easier than welding in an 8 piece. This is all provided I can find a pre-fabbed notch with the bend!

I went through his threads, there is like 13 pages of "lounge" material, I didnt find any pics of the notch. What kinda notch are you running dave? Klint told me to just weld in the 8-piece at full height (no trimming) and run a bumpstop on the notch with 22's until im setup for 24's. It just seems like a shit ton of welding, im going to be using a lincoln promig 140 and pre-heat the metal with mapp gas.

nice, thanks for the pics, blue02's shit is clean! just inspired me to go with two 6 gallons with the end brackets now, instead of the two 5's I had orignally planned on.
