    Default Evo Gussets are On!!

    The build plan moves one step closer to getting a lift and bigger tires. I must say it is killing me to have a Jeep that is not lifted with bigger tires. I don't know how people go for years without doing this.
    I phoned one of my former students and asked him if he had time to do some welding for me. He works as a welder and fabricator at a small industrial shop. He said he would be glad to help me out. He's only 18 but he is already a certified welder and has won several competitions in welding in the state of Texas. He's darn good!!! He and several other students have taught me to "weld".(Stick metal together with good penetration but it's a far cry from good welding.) Now I put these gussets on my last Jeep and they were okay. They even held during my crash but this time I wanted them put on by somebody that really can weld.
    Here are a few pics: I'm happy with the results.
    Out of focus but this was before he started grinding. He insisted that they should be cleaned up. I wanted to look at the welds.

    He said that it wasn't his best work but it would hold.

    Top gusset - They are now stamping them with the logo! Cool I know it's there.

    Painted the C's and tacked the caps for good measure. I just couldn't be happier. That's not true I now am ready for the lift and tires!!!
