Video Tutorial: Scratch Building AM Max-G Frame

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

i wanna apologize for this... this is my 1st video tutorial and its not as great as i would like it to be. building this frame was easy but when i started talking about it i quickly realized just how much goes into the build with the many differences between frames and the proper construction of the frame with its pit falls. i got tongue tied and spit out the wrong terms a few times in this video so i must apologize for that. when i get more time i will work on making a better one.

Great how to so this would be a good way to scratchbuild a 70`s or 80`s Pro stock to? Want to do my first one and would like to know the easies way to bend rods and the best to mount the tubbing.

John, this Cut and Bend Method is not exclusive to just the AM Max-G frames it can be used for frames of all styles. if its a square or rectangular rod then yeah it can be used to make pro stock frames. round rod you can still use this method but its going be very hard to reshape your fishplates to the roundness to the the rod but not impossible. .

even if you're just looking to adjust a frame like pinching a 32 ford frame rails the Cut and Bend Method works great.

thanks for asking and i hope this answered your question

Thanks that does help a bit a lot people tell me to make the end of the round tubbing fish mouth with a round file. I tried that and how do control the round file from taking to much off? Any ideas how to do it that is easier.
