Darksider's Realm

(this is not a place for lazy video game freaks. We Darksiders have been around doing our thing for decades before the mindless couch blobs latched onto the term Darksider)

DARKSIDER In the world of automotive hobbyists a Darksider is one who modifies and or customizes any and all sorts of vehicles. The Darksiders are in a class of their own simply because they endeavor to be different and do things that others would not attempt for a number of reasons mostly being related to a lack of ability and fear of non conformity.

This is a forum for people who think outside the box in everything they do. It doesn’t matter if you are modifying or building from scratch. It doesn’t matter what brand or brands of vehicles or components you are using. It doesn’t matter if you are working on a mini car or a bus.

We will not be asking you for donations or any kind of monetary payments. We will be asking for help in terms moderators and encouraging you to spread the word and add to our membership.

    boxing in the frame

    Post  charger on Wed Jun 17, 2009 5:44 pm

    decided to box in my frame for a cleaner look, already had it partially boxed in at the front due to the suspension swap, the rear end was c-notched and partially plated with 1/4 inch steel, i ran 1 1/4 inch conduit tubing inside the frame only welding it at 3 places in case of chassis flex, then i started to plate the sides up,bent up pockets so i can get to my bed mounting bolts, for the rear, i`m using a 69 mustang tank so i made my bracket up and welded nuts inside the frame to attach the tank frame,needed more side room for the tank so i cut the bottom of the rails enough to clear the tank,didn`t have anything fancy to bend the steel in the back frame so i welded the top plate to the frame, heated it up and bent it into a oval shape and then welded the bottom to the frame.
