Tig Welding

Once the bypass tubes were put built and laid in the correct position on the already-drilled shock body, Evelo went about TIG welding them on, without the bypass guts in them, of course. After the tubes are welded on the body, it's first honed (in case of any burs) and then sent out for cadmium plating to protect against corrosion. Before the shocks leave, they are pressure tested to make sure there will be absolutely no leaks anywhere.
