Can Am XDS CAMS Spec Cage Complete

Great progress with the XDS CAMS cage, ready for welding.  We use the MIG (Metal Inert Gas) process for our cages, they can be TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welded if specifically requested, however there is no strength benefit, just aesthetics.  The Cagetec CDS (Cold Drawn Seamless) tubing responds well to the MIG process being a minimum 520Mpa tensile strength.  TIG welding is normally recommended for 4130 chromoly (620 Mpa) tube as its prone to heat effected zone cracking so low heat input is required.

Once welded, reassembly and some new panel work; aluminium roof, aluminium door panels and Cagetec Mirrors.
