Slowly coming along. I have acquired some tools. Tube bender for $150, drill press for $80, tube notcher, chop saw and inherited an air compressor.

Can’t say I’m not practicing. Not the best looking welds but but will hold. Been practicing vertical thick to thin most recently. I was starting from bottom to top but kept burning through the thin material. So I started from top to bottom and that seemed to work better. Still not consistently good but getting there.

Race before I’m 50. Cut out some material for the main hoop base plates. Still pretty rough. I’ve ben adhering to the SCCA ITB GCR . Gonna get in touch with local safety steward to make sure I’m on the right path. Thanks for looking! Any positive input is appreciated. :beer:
