Anyone do CAD work for their Teryx?

Just wondering if anyone here does any CAd work for the projects on the teryx? Right now I have mine at home doing what I am calling " Sleepy's Appearance Package" and I have done quite a few Solidworks models with more still to come. Just wondering if anyone else out there actually designed anything or just went seat of pants.

I used a 3D digitizer and AutoCAD to help me draw the windshield.

Going by the seat over here - buying a pipe bender, some pipe and see what kind of a rat's nest I can make. Well actually pricing a pipe bender right now to see if I should buy one or just buy a cage???
TODD - what kind of pipe bender are you using? I was reading another post that you were talking about screwing up pipe trying to program the software.

Im pretty sure Todd has a rotary draw type bender like mine, i have an ercolina theyrun around 10-15k. If your only doing one cage I would just but a cage, but then again its can be pretty fun doing your own. There are lots of good benders out there for around 2-3500 though also. check out tricktools.com

I work in SolidWorks all day. We just got our Teryx, but I've already solid modeled an aluminum roof for it. I work in a precision sheet metal shop and I'll be damned if I'll spend $250 for a $125 part. That's at shop rate, it's a lot cheaper doing it myself. I just can't believe what's being charged for some of these fabbed sheet metal pieces. I'll be doing a lot more Teryx parts in SolidWorks. Might have to develope a side line.

Where are we going, and what am I doing in this handbasket?

yeah, its pretty nuts to see what is charged. I understand everyone wants to get paid, but sometimes its a bit too much.

so far I have a few odds and ins modeled up. I will be working on the design for some actual assemblies this week. after that, its on to some bumpers and some refinement to my nerf bars.

dalton clutch

I have a 09 teryx sport. I have heard alot about the dalton clutch. Does anyone know where I can find a good place to take and have one installed in Houston Texas area? Also can anyone tell me what to expect on the performance difference? Is this a good mod to do to a stock machine and what will I notice when going from stock clutch to a dalton clutch.
