|When building a street rod, throwing a modern day V8 motor in older day cars and driving the higher
speeds that we drive today, boxing in the original flimsy frames is a must.
Our Easy Weld boxing plates are cut undersized so that they would basically slip inside the original
frame rails, to allow for a V gap for great weld penetration, without the worry of grinding away too
much weld and sacrificing strength when grinding the welds flush. There are steps or outward
notches incorporated into our boxing plates to prevent them from slipping inside the frame and
making fitting and adjusting difficult.
This is a 6 piece set cut from 10 Gauge (slightly thicker than 1/8")steel. The two longer pieces run
from the rear of the frame, right up to the front crossmember. The main plates are made in 2
smaller pieces for ease of shipping and to reduce shipping costs. The smaller 2 pieces for the
frame horns may not be needed, but can be used (whole thing or trimmed to needed length) with
certain independent suspension front crossmembers, and/or if you are wanting a cleaner look up
front and are not using the front splash pan.
These will fit 28, 29, 30 & 31 model a cars or trucks
Dimpled Sets Special Notes:
The front crossmember area has been left undrilled to provide you with more material to weld your
front crossmember to, if install the boxing plates before the front crossmember. (if not, it can be
trimmed off) . If you want other certain areas to be left solid, you can contact us for a Custom Cut
set with measurements were you would like the boxing plates to be left undrilled for an additional
To state the obvious..some assembly, fitting and welding is required.
