Talking

I have been doing some arc welding. Something about a mig welder with .030 wire just won’t do ¼” plate. Why have I been welding ¼” plate? Well, I needed to make this…



I have also been cutting out the left front fender well. It was all beat in. I also had to cut a rather large hole in the fender well. Why did I cut a large hole in the fender well? I needed to mount this…



And here is a really cruddy pic of what the box looks like installed. I still need to finish off the body work around the opening, but it’s coming along likely. There will be more of an update when all the work is done.

No pics... But I did get a bit more work done. The mount is now fully welded into the body. I also started to cut the dash for the steering column. So the under hood area will be finished off soon. I also worked on left fender well a bit. It is now almsot ready for a "thin" coat of mud.

To help with welding thick stuff with a 110 welder: if you can pre-heat the pieces first it works much better. Tack them good and then heat up with a torch. Then weld them. This will help to make sure you get good penetration and fusion.

An old saying, but when welding you can never have enough penetration. Kinda like something else in life.....

I have no problem with the welding or the penetration. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]

I cooked them there bad boys in with the Miller stick, then dunked 'em in an oil bath for close to an hour to be on the safe side. This is the steering we're talking about.
