I'm looking for someone with knowledge on splicing a frame in Kelowna. I have a project on the go to stretch a frame and need some advice from a pro. This wont be a slap together thing. Basically I want to either splice 2 frames together, or add a 15" straight section to lengthen a single frame. Not sure which route I will take, hence the advice. Anyone have a shop they can recommend or have experience with this type of thing? Thx

Its allot better to get it done right on the side. Frame mods as far as I know require NDT and aproval from MOT or TC. I been NDTing a couple HIABs a week because the CVIS really cracking down.

I would rather get it done outside of a shop for sure. Private would be better. I just need to find someone who knows what to do and wants the work.

I did one a couple years ago adding 22" to a ford frame to go to a x-cab, did another by putting 2 together, just longer, done a couple toy long box trucks into short box. B.C. has a rather weird situation in there frame mod rules.

And I work at a shop that builds approved decks and truck boxes. and i was presure certified, but that's lapsed. The last time I did a cwb test, of the 9 guys to test, only 2 passed the first time. I was one of those 2. And those tests were not ndt test, which I have fooled on purpose. It's ammazing how terrible a weld can be and pass ndt. You want to test, destroy a weld.

My guess would be that you don't want to cut up annother frame, unless you can find one thats hit and bent. It is far stronger to weld 2 frames together than to splice in a section, basicly, one weld zone as opposed to 2.

I have a frame I spliced that way here if you want to come take a look.

I dont know why you think that. I would rather do a bend test ANYDAY then a full xray NDT. All ASTM and ASME Pressure vessel test coupons require NDT not detructive test LPI is not accepitble . I NDT ( I hold my radiography, eddy current, LPI, mag particle and UT tickets I'll find the tungsten from a scatch start everytime. NDT is used to descibe all non destructive tecniques
