Looks great! For your headers what do you do to get them to all collect into the collector? I've been thinking of just filing mine to the right size but I want them to be even. Any help?

Tyrone, I have been learning so much watching your builds.......

 

After looking at your cage I was wondering, do you heat the evergreen up to bend it to shape? Also how do you keep your chassis so straight/symetrical?

I do use a lighter at times to make some of my bends when doing the cages... as far as how I keep everything straight... I dont use a jig or anything, like some of the guys that are doing these types of builds... I kind of just dive in and start by making the floor first, and build up from there...now some times I have to redo it a few times before I get it right... but thats the fun part right??....
