This.... So much. So many times we get caught up in the build and forget what the ultimate end goal is... to have fun in our cars!

Half a day to work on the car today so I kept going on the A-pillar gussets. I'm kind of stuck at the moment doing odd jobs because the person who usually does lathe work for me has gone on extended holiday in Europe. Without the lathe work I can't continue with the control arm fabrication.

Traced out my cardboard design onto some sheet metal.



Cut both sides out with the angle grinder then taped them together to drill holes in each corner.



Used my dremel to make the smaller cuts between the drilled holes.



Cleaned them up with a hand file.



They are now ready to be stitch welded but I ran out of time.



These were time consuming but I see them as a very noticeable feature when you look at the car from the outside so I wanted to take the time to get everything perfect.

Sorry, kinda off topic. What trailer is that? Seems really lightweight and minimal.

I went snowboarding last weekend so missed my day on the car, got some work done today though, finished welding the A-pillar gussets into the car.

Stitch welded with the TIG.



and a coat of primer so it doesn't go rusty.



I'm very happy with how these turned out, it looks a lot more sleek than the typical dimple die gussets IMO.
