Default Rebuilding front of car

Marcus and I have begun rebuilding the front of the car. Several cracks developed after the MORE 500, in May. What we thought was the good side, that wasn't welded on at the 500, was cracked 180 degrees around the 1- 3/4 inch rear tube and bent. I could fit my finger in the gap with a straight edge on it.

I'm making new arms now. I first had to learn how to Tig weld. Here is one taking shape in the jig.

Here it is with both trusses done.

The arms will be plated to act as both a gusset and skid plate. The existing mounts on the car will be cut off and rebuilt aroung these arms. All the heims are the same size now, same as the outside spindle heim. They will be allot heavier than the old arms and stronger.
