    Cool link. Awesome method for body connection to a tube frame. can make them any length and have zero distortion on the outside of the body.

      Great for Drag Race bodies especially carbon and fibreglass .........really depends on the weight of the body , factory steel bodies on tube chassis need a little more strength............Off road vehicles especially ones without full suspension seating need a totally different style mount......in those cases we have used memory urethane pucks much like a lot of OEM vehicles use that sandwich the body with damping urethane on both top and bottom........saves the bodies and still offers some damping effect to any components mounted to the body..........Here are some of our lightweight aluminum epoxy on brackets with integral tabs..........saves the welding!
