Good stuff, i'll be after a set for sure. Will the ID of your rails allow welding over the existing rails or will the originals need to be removed?
Hi bud, currently they are to suit total replacement(remove and replace)
however I can widen the rail to facilitate a 'CAP' type install, although you are just creating a safe haveven for rust to tear through the new ones,
OK yes you will probably get another 5-15 or so years out of these ones, possibly more depending on moisture and exposure,
My recommendation is replace completely, old rails are usually squashed an bashed about a bit anyway so fitment would not be an IDEAL slip on/over the old ones. A BFH will be req'd
Youd be suprised what lurks inside your existing rails or box sections, thats if there is anything left.
260z rails are different and alot taller / deeper, although ultimately would be another Type/model ill have to finish developing for sale, not a massive problem but valuble time none the less.
As I dont have a 260z, im not (wasn't planning on) venturing down this track, but hey i could be swayed....
All of these items are or going to be available because I NEED them myself,
OK i may end up with quite of developed replacement/upgrade and or performane products
they may not always be available. but i do have/own and will always have access to the IP for this stuff.
But wait till brakes, control arms, fuel tank, and other suspension goodies are my main area of concern. more bits to come....
