View Full Version : Flat steel in car building?

05-17-2010, 05:05 PM
Is there any flat steel pieces used in constructing race cars? If so, would you know of gauges, grades, suppliers, websites where I could find more info..etc....? I suppose I'm talking about gussets or braces? things of that nature...I'm just a fan not real familiar with this and I'm trying to help a friends kid write a paper for a school project. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance.

Most of the flat steel is gonna be used for the mounting points, like 4-bar brackets, shock mounts, seat tabs, some motor mounts. Hope this helps
