The handle is finished... It was too heavy so I bored it out, and sweated in a cap so I could maintain the domed end like I had originally.

This is a cap that I made for my overflow tank. The o-ring is a tight fit inside the the tank to prevent the cap from falling out.

This is the tank a friend of mine made for me back when the freak was still on the highway. The cap is installed in this picture.

I like the speed holes in your clamp.

This may be jumping the gun a little but what to you plan on using for paint? Krylon? I like the look of bare clean metal but it wouldn't take long for all of that to rust.

Makes me want to use S.S. for everything!

I will be using some krylon designed to be brushed on, but im going to thin it out enough to spray it on with my elcheapo home depot HVLP paint gun.

Default Parts at work?

Hey Brook, my Dad is sitting next to me and he told me to tell you that he's going to put an order for parts to be done for me at work. What priority should he use? #1 ?

Default Emergency?

On "E" your going to have to work through lunch and break. But if that's what you want.... He told me that was the best looking stuff he's seen come out of there. Looking great on all of the fabrication.

Inlet tubing mount...

3/8" Brake line, some rubber fuel line to isolate it, and some 1/2" sch 40 pipe to hold it in place.

How do you plan on running heat to the cab? You could have just run the coolant pipe through the cab and put some fins on it. That must be the coolest radiator hold down contraption ever.

The heater plumbing all comes off the front, up by the engine.

Nice. Looks like you've been looking at airrides (on PBB) brackets with all those speed holes and dimples. Your hanger idea is great, going to have to remember it.

And the overflow tank is a work of art.

Airride? His chassis are cool looking, but no, hes not part of what has inspired me to dimple anything. Dimple dies have a definite function though, and IMO, 90% of what you see them used on wasnt done for function. It was done for bling, which IMO, is not only misleading, but a waste of time. for example...

I see lots of rock guys putting 1.5" dimples in pieces of 1/8" plate thats only 3x6".

The function of the dimple is to add a "third" dimension to light gage material to add rigidity and reduce a little bit of weight. In the above example, due to the heavy gage, and the small area covered, the dimples third dimension might add some strength, but its negligible.

With a very light gage material, like the 18 ga I used for the radiator mount, the dimple actually makes a very large % increase in the rigidity of the sheet.

If I had a bead roller, I might have used that instead.

Here is what inspires me... Desert trucks/fab work. This is a great example of proper dimple die work.

Very true. Dimpling can be about bling or about using the appropriate thickness of mat'l and adding some strength thru the dimple, like the desert race truck fabbers do to reduce weight.
