That's a lot of drilling holes and riveting. If you have a compressor, the Harbor Freight pneumatic riveter is awesome!

Question, are you putting compression sleeves into the tubes that bolt to the frame, to keep them from compressing over time? It would be worthwhile as over time, that will be the failure point as the chassis flexes. Just my thought based on my metal fab work over the decades.

Keep up the good work.
