Fabricated rear swaybar mounts for 86 wagon(DUW pictures)

Recommended Posts

Wasn't going for pretty, just functional. XT6 bar is installed,

just have to reinforce the mounting points this weekend.

Have swapped out the rear shocks and discs from a turbo wagon, going for the front struts Sat.

This is my 1986 wagon, the low dollar mobile, so I wasn't interested in

finding the lower control arms with the mounts to swap in.

More pictures to come if anyone is interested.

Carfreak, this will work for the EA81 cars too.

Ran into a snag when putting this bar on the back of the car.

My Cambell Hausfeld wire feed welder

decided to quit working properly.

The wire is ALWAYS hot now.

So you can't position it where you want it and start welding.

I went ahead and used it, don't like the welds very much, but penetration was good and it got the job done.

 

Went and bought a Lincoln Electronics PRO MiG 135T mig welder today,

going to go get a tank of argon/CO2 for it tomorrow.

Got a self darkening mask too.

The welder and the mask are a big difference,

BIG. After the fact, but good none the less.

This should definately help the fabrication projects.
