Trying to get some skinz. And possibly a vincebar. Want to see if a mason brace could work with the vncebar in unison.
I think over next few weeks/months it will take him a bit longer to respond to you.

Could be wrong, of course.
When I spoke to Vince about this, he was strongly in favor of the epoxy rivet method. While others have mentioned that Vince thinks it's just as strong as welding (something he told me as well), the one factor he mentioned that really stuck with me where his concerns that welds could damage the surrounding metal if not done carefully. Now, if you are a TIG wizard and/or MIG magician or you know one, this will likely not be an issue, but I could definitely see this being a concern for the less experienced DIY'er type (such as myself). For me, welding is a much more daunting prospect than riveting and epoxy. I'm sure I'm not alone.

Again, whether or not this is a problem will differ for everyone, depending on how they plan to weld their plates and who ends up doing the work. But as for myself, I'm planning to have Kaiv do the rivet/epoxy method on my car.

Yeah, seconded, see above. Vince actually recently posted a thread here about this very issue as well. To make a long story short, the man has a lot going on and he's also a solo operation, so communications are not ideal at the moment. IMO, your best bet at the moment to get in touch quickly would likely be a combination of his facebook page + patience, unfortunately.

Not sure if this helps demonstrate our epoxy application...
