Welder recommendation
« on: August 26, 2015, 07:25:27 PM »

Hi anyone knows of a good welder (person) to weld my roll cage? San Mateo area but no issue if I have to travel anywhere say up to 2 hours in a weekend?

thanks

Arabia's overkill in Campbell does good work. They have shop prices though.

it would be less expensive to order the full cage already welded.

tough when you can't wrench at the place you live in... it sucks!

I'd also recommend Jeff Arabia over in Campbell. Not the least expensive out there, but definitely hard to beat in terms of quality. Roll cage is something you should probably get right.

I recommend not getting the powder coat that he recommends. Just paint it and that way it's easier to match later if you change the cage. It also adds to the bill.

Plus if you add onto the cage you can grind and paint over it...  There are nice DIY kits as wwll
