Re: how the **** do you do this?
ive done drop outs as an insert then spot weld and come back and put a nice dime thick bead around it. i gave myself about a half inch overhang ( guess that would be inner hang in this case) and that frame went through three years of dirt track and skate park teenage abuse and those dropouts were probably the only thing not broken on it at that point. as far as getting the frame straight its just a take it slow thing but dont get anything too hot. when you do you not only distort the work but put the integrity of the frames stress points into question.
