    It is the deep drawn stuff we are looking for.... hammerforming halves would be simple.... as would bandsawing prebent tube and fishplating.... BUT Drawn or Stamped...... they may come out of some corner of industry totally unrelated to racing....

    id have to agree with you on that it might come from somewhere unrelated to racing im leaning toward it being stamped or requiring a lot of metal working skill

    Been doing a lot research lately. And from reliable source i got told that all the curved gussets that VW racing cars have are made in 2 pieces.

    Thanks Suvi
    Two pieces make the fabrication of those bits a whole lot simpler ....

    Default Gusset

    I realize that this thread has been hangin on for awhile. I just looked at that gusset.

    Seems a Pullmax could easily shape that profile. Of course, if you look at the gussets at the top of the A-Pillars in the picture, you can see the weld seam. It looks like a clamshell type gusset to me. For what its worth, they DO look nice.
