This may not be new to you, but it's a new technique for me.

yes its amazing what you can do with the right tools.
when I worked as an engineer there was a shop in Hialeah that specialized in that type of work for air craft parts, that I worked in occasionally on their PBX
gaining the machine tools and machinist skills , welder , and metal fabricating skills ,takes time and lots of cash but its an addictive hobby thats for sure!

every time I see something like that done I can think of a dozen reasons I should own a lathe and extensive tooling.
Having the basic tools to bend form and machine metal, and learning the skills to use those tools is one more in an endless list of reasons owning a LATHE, ENGLISH WHEEL, and a WELDER and MILL will allow you to fabricate a great deal of the parts you might need in custom car parts.
yes Im a TOOL JUNKY but once you get the tools you wonder both why it took you so long and how you ever got along without them, and besides you can then stop visiting your buddies shop just because he has a LATHE you don,t and he has to bring the cold six packs when he needs to use the welder, mill etc.

It looked like Velocity Stacks for a while being made.

There's never enough money to build it right, but there's always enough to build it twice!
