Need Some Help With Tubing
Fellow V6ers I need help with some tubing. Im looking for someone who can cut and weld steel tubing who also has acess to a shop which does powder coating or chrome plating. This person also needs to have access to some scrap 2.5" and 1" steel exhaust tubing.
My problem: I have a hacked up intercooler tubing setup with ugly mismatched couplings and cheap clamps.
My solution: Im looking to send my tubing to someone for the following work:
-In places where my tubing comes up short there is a really long rubber couling in its place. Id like to have additional tubing welded on so that I can use a shorter coupling.
-Some places I have couplings that could be gotten rid of if the tubing was welded together in that location.
-My by-pass valve tubing is connected to a piece of copper tube jb welded to the steel tube. Id like to have this taken out and a steel piece welded on.
-At the end of each piece of tubing I would like to have a clean bead of weld ran around the tube to help the couplings from slipping off.
-Last if possible Id like to have it chrome plated, powder coated or poslished.
Im looking to have all my couplings and clamps replaced with good stuff but I can order that myself if needed.
Would anyone here be willing to help me out with this project? Id love to do it myself but have no welding skills or access to chrome plating or powdercoating.
Also.. If anyone does some mandrel bending Id like to get some 1" tubing bent for my bypass valves to replace my current setup made of copper tube and soldered on bends!
