    Well. I built myself a sheet metal brake from scratch and then scored a cheep shop press for $20 with a bad jack. I swapped out the jack on the press and she works great. Here is my first project with the new tools. this is my version of super stock seat brackets. they are made from 1/8" aluminum sheet.

    here is the brake i built

    then i started the layout for the brackets.

    drilled my holes

    this is where my shop press came into play. i picked up a set of dimple dies and they make the sheet metal 100x stronger

    then i had to run them thru the brake.

      sure. i would just need to know the dimensions you wanted. i could make them shorter also. i have a 1 1/2" dimple die too. the ones i made are with a 2" hole.

      pm me for details.

      How would you like to get paid for them? I have a set already but at that price would be a fool to pass them up....not to mention yours are way nicer looking than the ones I have. Mine are replicas from the SS HEMI a-body book that are exactly like them but yours are more snazzy looking....Will be a month or so before I can send you payment....

        i bet she could. there is a cardinal color called silverdillo. it looks like raw aluminum. looks killer with a clear coat over it.
