|When building a street rod, throwing a modern day V8 motor in older day cars and driving the higher
speeds that we drive today, boxing in the original flimsy frames is a must.
Our Easy Weld boxing plates are cut undersized so that they would basically slip inside the original
frame rails, to allow for a V gap for great weld penetration, without the worry of grinding away too
much weld and sacrificing strength when grinding the welds flush. There are steps or outward
notches incorporated into our boxing plates to prevent them from slipping inside the frame and
making fitting and adjusting difficult.
These are cut from either 10 Gauge (slightly thicker than 1/8") or heavier 7 Gauge (3/16") steel to
give even more added strength when welding motor mounts, crossmembers and etc to the inside of
the chassis. The 3/16" plates also allows more threads, when drilling and tapping holes for clamping
brake & fuel lines, wiring, etc.
This is a 6 piece set. The two longer pieces run from the rear of the frame, right up to the front
crossmember. The main plates are made in 2 smaller pieces for ease of shipping and to reduce
shipping costs. The smaller 2 pieces for the frame horns may not be needed, but can be used
(whole thing or trimmed to needed length) with certain independent suspension front crossmembers,
and/or if you are wanting a cleaner look up front and are not using the front splash pan.
These will fit 28, 29, 30 & 31 model a cars or trucks
To state the obvious..some assembly, fitting and welding is required.
