Hi Everyone, I am in the beginning of a shell off on a 1950
Silver Streak clipper. The frame was shot I wasted a bit of cash and time on trying to repair the old tube but it was to pitted for me. I had the best welder for this project a real perfectionist who was into the project. It took four sections to complete first was the first set of tabs then I riveted the outriggers to the tabs then round two was welding the tabs to the rear of the outriggers to capture them first I had to make the tabs round three was the jack and coupler I wanted it to look like it did right down to the locking device flipping toward the trailer. Damon the welder torched two holes in the tube and one in the coupler I had made the collars with the serial number stamped in with an old set of numbers bigger 7/8 older font it was fun cutting the tube for the collars with a sawmill
round four was today I braced the c channel where the axle hangs off and added a skid plate to the rear a collar that mimics the collars up front I will punch the serial number into the rear skid plate too just because i can.
The tube is 4" DOM tubing
