Any one here ever replace a frame?

I can get a new one from Ronayers.com for $1200, but I need to send them the neck of my old frame for the vin stamping. I can cut the neck off, I've got the tools her at the house but I was wondering if thre was a easier way to go about this or around it. Besides I want to make a glass top table for the TV room with my old frame though and I didn't want to cut her up, if I have to though no biggy

I was wondering that was possibale but I don't now if I would trust it. I'll have to take a pic but the damage is behind the neck of the frame, very simular to this ebay auction but a bigger chunk missing.

I'm confused... Are you worried about the strength of the weld for your glass table top, or are you wondering about cutting the neck off to replace it with another?

If you send Ayers the neck, they will send you a whole new frame with the existing VIN that you have on your current frame.

If there is concern about CUTTING the neck off to send it to Ayers, why not just send them the whole frame?

The reason I didn't want to cut the neck of the frame is because I wanted the whole frame for my table, I want it to look stock, not chopped.

Ductape, always use ductape. It'll make it brand new again, and it will cover up the slice mark Now all you'll have to figure out how to get rid of the visable ductape, but i'll leave that to you!

Aluminum spray paint.

As previously mentioned - pack it up and send the whole thing to RA and make sure they know to return BOTH frames. That idea would be much less of hassle (for me anyway) if I wanted to use the damaged frame for 'furniture' (hope you dont have a wife or that idea will get tossed).

I've got a feeling you're not getting your headstock back, if you did there could be 2 frames running around with the same VIN.

I thought they used a sander/grinder and removed the VIN to eliminate that possibility.
