I previously posted some questions about aligning the upper and lower cage sections after chopping 4″ out of the rear of the cage. I was able to pull the lower bars together enough to align them with the upper section and pull it down over the sleeves. Of course, I ended up putting the straps too close to the joint, so I will have to lower them before welding. I have a couple of more questions.Utah RZR Rentals
- The back side of the tube is tight with no gap, but the front has about 1/8″ gap. Will this be an issue? Do I need to try to loosen the cage to get it to align better? My concern isn’t as much the strength of the weld, but more will it look straight once I clean up the welds and paint the cage.
- As you can see in the pictures, the upper section is offset from the lower section about the thickness of the tube. Will pulling the lower section in a bit tighter fix this issue, or is it because of the angle of the tubes? I’m trying to find the best way to align these so I have a clean joint once it is painted.
I really appreciate all of the help this forum has provided. I certainly wouldn’t have thought of chopping my cage without seeing it done here first.
