    punched/dimpled plate.

    Gotta make some of the below in 3mm ally.

    got nothing but the raw matl.

    got lathe to make dies but will need a hydro press (or even screw press).... what sort of tonnage would I be looking at ?

    no care factor for speed as will be a one off set of side steps for both a Ranger and Hilux.

      under 15 tons at a guess, i'd buy the dimple dies unless you have heaps of time for someone else to spend making them work, don't think they cost much.

        Making dies is far easier than trying to source and purchase in Thailand.

          If the holes are pre-drilled making the die is easier. You can use a bolt through style dimple die and simply hit it with a rattle gun.

          Didn't Al cover these on his Mustang Drag car build video with Ben?

            plates would be laser cut with holes.

            Have pushed back on request due to timing.
