    Default Third Strike Fabrications.

    Hey guys, I have been modifying and fabricating custom bits and peices for quite a variety of Japanese cars over the past few years and it has slowly been picking up in pace, so I thought that it would be good to try and widen the spectrum of potential customers.
    The majority of what I do is cut and shut steering knuckles for big steering lock and faster steering, I also have done many lower control arm setups aswell which include lengthening, shortening, boxing in the underside for rigidity and scalloping for further steering angle. But this is not the extent if my skills, I am trained in structural welding and am qualified as a sheet metal fabrication engineer, I can do basically anything related to these feilds. 99% of my work is TIG welded and ALL of my steering/suspension modifications are TIG welded.
    At this current point in time I do not have a great expanse of space available so sadly I cannot have entire cars come to me for long periods of time as I have no where to store them, but smaller items such as steering knuckles, control arms, exhaust parts etc. are welcomed. So if you have any quieries or would just like to run something by me don't hesitate to ask.
    Cheers, Ben.

    The tabs on the tube were 28 amps, no pulse
    The end in the tube was 30 amps
    The fuel tank was welded on roughly 60amps (2.5mm sheet)
