I know a guy that made gussets for the 350x frames. He is great at building parts. He may mail me cardboard cutouts that you can use as templats to make your gussets. He has found and strengthened evry weak point on the 350x frames with these. I have seen his 86 350x in person. very nice.
He built my headlight guard and PCed it for me too.

I fabricated a set of gussets for my X and now that I am building another frame up, I would like to see what oldtime's friend has. I am the old dog that likes new tricks.........
