I beg to differ. You have above average welding and body skills.

People have re-acted to the knowledge that I have a wire-feed in my garage with "Oh, you can weld?" I respond with "I have a welder." Wink
My garage:
2018 300 Hemi - daily driver
2006 Sierra 4.8 - backup vehicle and sometimes hauler
1969 BBO Javelin 390 T10 - my neverending project

curious RebelMachine,

Which wire feed machine do you have, what wire are you using and what shield gas?

Thanks


I've got a Miller 130XP I bought new almost 20 years ago. For wire I use 0.023" (which I can't seem to find) for sheet metal, 0.030" for thicker stuff. Shielding gas is 75% Argon 25% Carbon Dioxide. Get it filled at the local welding shop.

Since the Megastreet 401 is out of my hands for the moment I've had time to do more metalwork on the Machine.

Finished plug welds on the underside of the driver's side repair panel. Would like to get it on a rotisserie and work the underside a bit better. I'm not good at welding upside-down. Had to form the area that meets the rear valance as it didn't quite line up.









Repaired a section of the lower rear glass area with a piece of the NOS quarter I sectioned in earlier in the restoration.
