Fabrication/CAD Work/Headers/Prettt Much anything -CHCH

Postby nick_m » Wed Feb 09, 2011 7:38 pm

Hi guys,
Is anyone keen on Car related work in CHCH area
Shit I can do
Engine conversions - engine mounts, gearbox mounts, tunnels, firewall set backs etc
Shortening strut housings/coilover conversions etc
Rust Work/ sheet metal work
Custom Headers - eveything from basic to Fully specc'd race headers (will need to know detailed engine info for the latter) can do stainless or Mildsteel. TIG'd OR MIG'd
Custom Turbo Headers in stainless/steam bends, TIG'd or MIG'd
*possibly* Aluminum intake manifolds, they would be specc'd to length/plenum size based on use.

Can do CAD work too, so design and detailed machining drawings for manufacture of parts you'd like.
Can in most cases probably do pick up and drop off of cars too, all work will be carried out in my garage which is fully alarmed so should I need the car for extended period of time it will be looked after.
Basically if its anything car related hit me up
I can't do machining or electrical (well not well enough to sell my services! but can get it done should it be required)

Some work i've done on my car, currently getting rollcage.
viewtopic.php?f=9&t=165
Check out Johns Cedric for CAD work, i've done.
(note header on my car at moment is rubbish and pretty much for sh1ts and giggles, I can do way better headers than that)

I am currently working on building a flow bench, so am hoping to maybe start doing a little engine building and ported heads sometime in the next 6 months too
Also, the work is done outside my normal work hours so, will be cashies and therefore may take a little longer than an actual business (read I charge way less)
PM me if interested.

Cheers
nick

Nice Work Nick

I have some jobs for you when the Flow bench is ready, how is your alloy welding ?
The Answer to your Question is NEEDS MORE VG30

I don't have a lot of experience with it, but its definitely something I want to get into. The small amount i've done hasn't turned out too bad at all.
