I posted this last weekend but it looks like it never showed up so I must have done something wrong.
I got rear suspension box completed with help from a buddy last weekend (thanks a bunch Huff!). It took approx 3 hours to complete mainly due to aligning the angled supports and trying to figure out a way to keep the coped ends aligned. I solved the coping issues my making a center line marking tool and then adding a mark on the tube notcher that lined up with the center line so that when the tube was flipped the copes were in line.
A couple of the angled tubes had to be tacked, taken off and redone a few times to get them right. It seems that the angle gauge will read differently depending on where you place it on the tube. Additionally, tacking the tubes was causing them to twist so the upper tubes wouldn't line up. I don't know how to resolve this. Otherwise everything else went pretty smooth and I can hopefully start on the front suspension box this weekend but that is going to require some templates and grinding to get the notches correct so we will see how it goes.
and my table is too short..
