What's funny is that my last name is Hansen, but no relation. (I believe his is spelled Hanson?)

I am really happy with how they came out. I should have the front painted and back on this week end.

Once again thanks for all the ideas guys.

Carr Lane is just as good as DeStaCo. I have used them in the past with success.

Have a great day!!!

well we started cuttin metal...

got 4 x 3 x 3/16, 20 foot stick layin in the yard. gathered up what we think is all the necessary stuff. (except for the PALLET of bud lite).

tonight we inside machined some 2.5 x .375" DOM down to 1.980" ID for the races on the pivot. got those done. went ahead and saw cut eight pieces of 1 x 2 x 6" long stock for clevis hangers. 45 degree'd the faces and used a haugen annular cutter to bore 1" holes.

so far this is some beefy sheit. this pivot is unreal. we went ahead and cut the DOM down about .003" more to ease race install. seemed a little tight.

we are building two sets of front and rear bumpers. so this is two of everything.

Those are just like the De Sta Co.. however, I didn't see one with the safety latch. I like the De Sta Co latch with the little safety catch that keeps it from opening.. that Carr Lane is a nice latch though..
