    I built the front control arms but I think I got the tube adapters a little too hot. Just three rod ends would thread in with out too much trouble. I got a left and right hand 1.5" x 12 taps to fix the problem.IMG_20170504_122813608.jpg

    Glad you fixed it, but did you let the metal fully cool before attempting to thread it?

    I tried when they were still a little warm, didn't thread all the way by hand. I tried again the next day and only got three to thread in. There was a lot of chips on the tap when it came out. I think the weld penetrated too deep and deformed the threads. Guess I have a lead foot when it comes to Tig welding lol.
