    If i brought up some sliders, and a 6pack, think I could swing up some time when you are free?

    Or is that a lengthy task to do?

    Did you want to use the welder to do it yourself or have me do it?

    I only know the concepts of welding, never done it. But would love lessons! haha

    so I guess you would be doing the work.

    Is it a small enough project that a 6pack would safice? or is welding them on a big thing?

    It's not a quick project, especially on the driver's side where you have to worry about the fuel lines running inside the frame channel.

    Better at least offer up a case of something good. :cool:

    haha agreed

    are the slider legs already welded to the frame plates or does everything need to be positioned and welded together

    well, hell.... i guess its beer and lunch on me.

    is that something you would be willing to do? I would love to watch and learn also, even though I know i need practice and the equipment...

    if so, let me know,
    and if not, let me know if you have a price for it.

    Cheers
