I wrap up the 25.2 Roll Cage Upgrade on Cleetus McFarland's Mullet El Camino by cramming myself into all sorts of contorted positions to get all of the cage additions welded and painted. Thankful to have this finished so that we can move back to final assembly of the various parts of the car!

Thanks for the great content it’s amazing. The explanations about everything and going into detail I love it. But you working 7 days a week make sure your taking time for you and your GF we can wait and so should your customers excellent work but don’t do it at the expense of yourself 👌👍👍

Kevin..... Next time use a cup gun, automotive paint and primer. The sheen of the paint will blend together so you are not chasing fogged tubing back and forth... Yes, using automotive paint adds probably 20 minuetsto your project adding catalyst and cleanup, but its soooooo much more Durable too. Worth it. Oh, and not to mention, that cage would take about 30 minuets to actually paint.. Just FYI, thanks a ton for the video and the Awesome work.

Kevin, why do you drill a small hole under the small brace before you weld? Is it to let the gases release?

Kevin, why did you drill tiny holes in the main cage before welding the gussets in place?
BFE 08 WRXSTI 20 dagar sedan
Just out of curiosity, why are you drilling a hole in the main bars before you add the gusset? Is it to avoid pressure buildup inside the tube when you close it completely?

I like using the high temp bbq grill paint when i paint any metal black... It has a satin to flat finish, but it dryes so smooth and is easy to use... You can also go over the high traffic areas with a torch and it will never come off. I live in louisiana, so i understand the struggle of rattle cans with the heat and humidity.

Kevin you probably already Know about the Miller Electric welding Auto-Darkening goggles #267370 Ideal for auto restoration and other DIY environments, the low-profile design allows users to weld in spaces where access with traditional welding helmets is limited. I liked The reference to VGG, IT WAS WAY COOL.

When painting cages, I use epoxy paint with slow retarder and apply it with a foam brush by hand. Comes out like glass.

Roll cages are a bitch to paint, especially in a dark cab....You always end up missing a spot somewhere....Kevin, a tip to try to avoid having dry spots around tubes because of drying to fast....Try chilling the paint in a fridge before using....Will slow down drying

@10:06, ",, it 9:30ish Sunday morning,,," ahhhh, the life of the shop owner. While the others are at home kick'n back relax'n Kev and his cool GF are slav'n away at the shop. It's how it gets done isn't it all you small business owners. And here's the kicker, very likely all this 'rework' will not be on Garrett's bill, this is being financed by "HIP NATIONAL BANK", eg; Kev's hip pocket.
