Weld Gussets

Once the bumpstop can was measured, cut, and welded in place, some extra gussets were cut and added to spread the load during compression. This gusseting is suggested whether it be into the factory unibody like shown or into a full race cage with support coming directly from the rollcage. This is also the time to weld on the lower support plate that the coil rests against. It should be completely welded to the bumpstop can and to the unibody (again, remembering to take care-this ain't frame metal).
