More progress today. Was nice having the day off. Got lots done. Nothing real obvious, but important stuff to do.

I trimmed off the glass seal flange on the quarter window opening on the roof.

I also got the cross bracing for the rear of the roof and the package tray fit and welded in.

I also managed to add a dimmer switch to the line feeding my welder. Makes a noticeable difference with my little flux core welder. I blow through much less frequently at about a 75% setting. Thanks for the tip Scott Woodard. Only took me 6 months to get around to doing it. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]
Dimmer switches are not made to handle the amount of amperage that a welder uses and is a potential fire in the making.Go to a electrical supply place and tell them what yuo need.You are risking major problems by using a dimmer switch.Better safe than sorry.
