Our Easy Weld boxing plates are cut undersized so that they would basically slip inside the original frame rails, to allow for a V gap for great weld penetration, without the worry of grinding away too much weld and sacrificing strength when grinding the welds flush. There are steps or outward notches incorporated into our boxing plates to prevent them from slipping inside the frame and making fitting and adjusting difficult. Steel technically speaking, they are. 1/8 is a better easier known term to give added strength when welding motor mounts, crossmembers and etc to the inside of the chassis.This is a 6 piece set. And fit very accurately, unlike many others. The fitment was done on American Stamping / Speedway motors reproduction rails, which are very true to form and will work very well on a stock chassis also. They run from the front spreader bar to the rear spreader bar with a radius to match them. Depending on what you want to do in the front or rear section, you can cut off some if you like, but if you want the entire length boxed, you do not need any extra steel!
The outward notches can also be cut or ground off so that you can slip the plates inside the rails for the stepped style boxing. This set is very versatile, which allows the builder to pick what he wants to do.Some assembly, fitting and welding is required. The front crossmember area has been left solid to provide you with more material to weld your front crossmember to, if install the boxing plates before the front crossmember.
(if not, it can be trimmed off). The rear crossmember and C notch area has also been left solid for flexibility in options and placement. There is plenty of room for motor mounts and center crossmembers to be welded in between the dimpled holes.We also sell a Vega Steering Box bracket! Get it all coming to you at once! Just a few of our feedback for our boxing plates.
