The frame is off to the welder for almost complete re-fabrication; went with a much taller frame for many reasons (see my replacement frame post)
My welder is great, and he lets me help.
Many great people giving great advice makes the unknown a lil easier to navigate. That said, I also began straightening my banana wraps in prep for the rebuild. Like most people the wraps take some abuse and I thought I would have to find some replacements. I thought I should try to fix them before buying something else. I used Aerowoods wood block method and touched them up with a body hammer and dolly.
Started out small and that seemed to go well
So well that I started marking out the dented areas
Took some work and adjusting here and there but it went surprisingly well
See Aerowoods Full Monty post. Should be compulsory text for this course. He basically makes a wood form and the sandwiches the wrap between the two halves. I cannot do his work justice and strongly suggest anyone attempting this read his posts. He is my metal workin hero. Thank you. It is with the advise of people like him and many others on this forum that I forge ahead.
