Hey Chris, saw you were struggling with the Porta Band Saw, SWAG offroad makes Porta Bandsaw tables, you should hit them up and check them out. V3 works with the Bauer you have.
jeremie manninen (19 hours ago)
lucky for you the damage on the BMW and Mercedes are things you can do yourself so that saves a lot of money there
moxl (1 day ago)
Why don't you start using a bandsaw ? It's not that expensive and it's perfect for what your're doing. it's very precise and if you add a bit of weight to it, it'll cut itself

shouldn't you put the front drops where they can grab the bolt holes for the rear of the front sub frame to allow you to finish bolting that up?

i think it's cool you use Max for your plans, but as a convert from Max to Vectorworks, i can tell you, moving into a proper CAD platform, is SO much better for things like that. you should give it a look, or even Autocad or fusion, i like VW for some of the tools it has for my industry but it'd work great for what your doing too.

chris don't stress about what you disclose to us about the insurance situation, you explained it well and don't owe anyone anything more than you told us.

8:22 In what world? IN WHAT WORLD would there EVER be an unbalanced force pushing on the middle of the frame rail?! I can't believe that is the reason they won't be widened! Not to mention there will be a cage preventing them from being able to deform upwards. The engine mounts had me triggered enough, but now I'm just absolutely baffled. It's been weeks and I just can't subscribe to this channel. The lunacy knows no bounds.

You think it's going to more then 2400 to straighten the body? I think you're nuts, this coming from a guy who has had cars in body shops through their life.
Art Of /or Ask (5 days ago)
well the 240 would be more because its a collector car, and retro body techs are not cheap on the work they do if thats the value. i think you should find an collector car appraiser to get a better reference. but this is just my opinion

Here in Australia, Once you have excepted the offer from an insurance company you cannot ask for more money later. You have to reject their first offer until you're happy with the money or go to court.

I’m sure you’ve seen people comment this already but I highly recommend you check out Street Banditos build on their carbon fiber 240z. They have many cool tips and trick and maybe you might want to even carbon fiber the fairlady like them? Keep up the good work. Really inspiring

Curious why you don’t use a cutoff saw? I have really good success with all kinds of fabrication using one ..ie: https://bestpowersaws.com/steel-chop-saw-for-certain-uses/

I would have stepped the frame rail outboard to the stock rocker panels of the Z. Would have been much tidier and far better for seat room and not having frame dangling under the rocker area

I could have taken engineering in collage but my mother got cancer and blew $200'000.00 on drugs over 3 years... me and my sisters were going to have something to start with to be self sustainable right out of high school and be independent of home, but she blew everything engorging herself buying useless things and drugs. I can remember going picking Saskatoon's on the farm to make pie but never seeing a pie. She had many kinds of cancer, because of her the doctor thinks that I have the same sickness but that is only one side of the coin.
mtktm (6 days ago)
One thing I want to point out, and I'm glad you haven't designed in just yet, is the cross/harness bar. For you that don't know, You don't want to put in the harness bar, UNTIL you have the seat placement done. Reason, If you have the bar too low and you get in a crash, the harness will force your shoulders down, causing spinal compression. You want to have the bar placement, using the angle of the harness from the shoulder to the bar, about 6~10 degrees.

Instead of doing the gussets I think I would weld in a diagonal piece going from the bottom rail to the top frame rail at an opposite 45 degree angle with a double 22.5 degree miter cut mating with the inside corners of bottom rail \/______\/ like that

He begrudgingly accepts the $2400
Colby Murphy (6 days ago)
So if anyone is confused by what he's saying about the insurance, here's a quick breakdown. Insurance is valuing his 240z damage at $2400, repairable. Pretty straightforward, they think it can be repaired for that much or less. However, Chris is suggesting that the loss of wages from not having a car to work on *might* be greater than that, or that the repair cost *might* be greater. Also, he is not using the damaged body, regardless. In fact, I believe he said he already bought a new one. It was that or he had one picked out that he was going to buy, per a stream from last week.

Eddie 84 (6 days ago)
Before you cut the original rail would it be best to put the roll cage in, would imagine its gong to pull and twist as you weld and end up with a banana. Might have been said already but worth considering

It's just me or is this car going to be really heavy??
PeppeRoshi Pizza (6 days ago)
For the door bars, just follow the drifting way, theyre wide which is what your want (gotta cut the inner door skin) but theyre low enough to get in and out of easily. More like what you see for amateur drifting vs Pro 1 e.g Taylor Ray Miata, Adamlz s13 :)

Wow you’re so anxious in the last part I hope everything turns out well for you
stonemason90 (6 days ago)
I think he's hooking you up on this one, as it sat the shell wasn't worth much. what he did was give you 100 short of blue book so you can keep the body and buy another so you don't lose all the work you've already done.
stonemason90 (6 days ago)
they take the car and all of its parts in a total loss, meaning everything associated with it which could potentially even be the frame your working on.

"Dive Down" Count: 43,597
Jack on the Farm (6 days ago)
As a mechanical engineer with welding/fab skills, I can tell you it is a mistake on the frame drop down to have the horizontal frame rail end cut at 90 degrees and the drop transition cut at 45 degrees. You have not maximized the joint strength and have left a hole to be filled. I like you and your videos, but I think I would redo this.
If you have any sort of hard crash with "your" frame rail that weld point is just gonna bend in half like a pickup truck bed... You really don't want that. My best bit of advice I can give you is; 1. load test diffrent angles welded together with the length that needs to drop down. 2. gather results and see which gives the best impact/ load resistance. 3. Use that for the part you need to drop down. Don't skimp on structural integrity of the chassis as that presents a weak spot which could cause serious issues.

I don't understand why are you doing the framerails like that. Why you don't just widen the framerails that much that they are closer to the body off the car?

If you mean those short rails that come out of the framerail, i didn't anything like that...

Not loving this build as much as others so glad your having a break from it still watching and liking but looking forward to the next break already, I am sure it's gonna be cool once it's done but I think I will start enjoying it more once the main fab work is done.
Mike Forward (6 days ago)
I think it's "funny" that he is borderline insulting to all the people that comment. Because obviously if you're a web designer, that can use some crap CAD software then you know so much more than any; welder, fabricator, car builder, mechanic or engineer. Right solid logic. I mean it's horrible that all those people just want you to have a successful build and to insure your saftey, which is good considering you've had more insurance claims than I've had hot dinners.

kuppajava McGuillicutty I actually wasn't trying to troll.. merely voicing an opinion. Sorry that is cancerous. If you think everything is so wonderful then check out the video of the YouTuber that bought his rx7
Wow, this channel sounds terrible for you! You should leave and never come back to teach us all a lesson for not listening to your meaningless blatherings of "wisdom"! ... Seriously though, just piss off. It's trolls like you and the angry nonsense you spew that make this comment section so cancerous, keeping good info from making it to the builder.

Chris R (6 days ago)
Look, you've got all sorts of leverage here for the 240z body. As you know you do not have to accept their offer of XXXX amount for the repair or replacement of the body. It's a rare car and will take time to find the right replacement and meanwhile you are trying to finish a project for your company. You should straight up tell them you need more than that and I bet they give you a bit more without a problem.
Murilo CAD (6 days ago)
Instead of cutting 45 degrees why don't you cut 22,5 degrees so the edges of each steel piece matches.

I pretty much love Chris's rants. You always know he'll pause, he'll "ehmm", he'll cut footage :D btw glad to know that insurance bs are coming along and end is near. also the frame work seems convincing, I don't think it'll be flimsy (once is gasketed and rollcaged). Keep up the amazing work :)
Heath Hansen (6 days ago)
I agree with others that you should maybe lawyer up and get what your owed out of the insurance company. They need to pay for all your time lost from working and making progress on your builds. They would have to fork it out to anybody else that lost time from there job. Also don't settle for peanuts on the 240z. Those cars are so rare now and hard to find. I know your attached to it but think of what's fair and owed to you from the accident that was not your fault. Hope everything works out in your favor.
Costy Nicolescu (6 days ago)
Hey, all. I have found these guys also building a 240 Z and they also have similar design for the door reinforcements. See here: https://youtu.be/M4C-TGrXywE?t=12m45s

Hi Chris. I am from Crescent Oregon and I am a mechanic and buy and fix cars. I also buy from Copart auto auctions. My buddy Todd from UNWRECKED has mentioned you in his builds a few times so I have checked you out and I really enjoy your builds bro. I really enjoy working on automobiles. I just wished I started my builds earlier in my 20's. The older you get the harder it is getting up and down under cars. I hoping to have my 1993 Ford Mustang Hatch build done this summer. I been working on it for 2yrs. I took out the 4cyl and put in a 5.0 HO with a c4. Getting the ECM tomorrow and hope to get it started finally. :)

Best way would be plug welding a plate either side then cap it off when you cut out the middle upper portion. All similar to a z notch. Check out some minitruck builds.

psychotyty94 (6 days ago)
Personally I think the insurance company should consider the Datsun to be totaled and payout and amount that suitable for the value of a Datsun. However the complication there is the value of your Datsun right now is essentially scrap metal. Because obviously majority of people see how the car is cut in half and wouldn't spend anything on it
