PJ,hey D can you number them from 1st to last? looks better than anything Ive ever done. keep at it
I'd have to get drunk, or doubly drunk, to recall the order of those attempts at TIG welding.
There is no rhyme or reason to the order as part of the problem was ANOTHER MISTAKE on my part. I had shifted from practicing on steel and tried my hand at aluminum - which in my limited experience - was actually easier than steel. In any event, I FORGOT to change the setting on my new welder back to DC rather than AC when returning to steel and that caused everything to go to hell in a hand basket!!
In the "for what its worth" department, I doubled down by investing (limited funds) in two new pieces of equipment: a drill press and the new welder. In both cases friends had lent me equipment which helped me understand the importance of having the right tools for the job. Considering the time, effort AND MONEY already invested in this damned car, it only made sense to do what was necessary to bring the project to completion. Besides, I really don't need my left nut, or my right one for that matter.
bro. Sweet d
