    Was wondering this too. Last time I tigged one I forgot to clamp it down, it warped like crazy.

    I tacked it at every bolt hole and I jumped around and also let it cool off it took a lot longer then I thought but it turned out good. Did u have problems getting it Dave?? They shipped mine a week after I payed for it 😡

    I've never dealt with Underground Fab, I usually go through RuffStuff. However, I wouldn't say that's uncommon to have parts shipped a week after payment. Not saying I like it, it's just the way it is. I have to call Poly Performance on average of 5 times after an order to make sure my stuff gets out the door.
