yep..got LOTS to weld! The odd part is the heat deflected areas are ones that have bends in them, the flat parts look pretty good and flat still! WTH!

this weekend's work. I took apart the window top part so I can keep the seam by rewelding it all back together in the order it was first assembled. Please note the welding wasn't done when I took the last 2 pictures.

Other than a couple of big holes, looking great! I know I would have some holes to fill in if I was welding it............

The holes are filled now. Problems are: difficult welding angle (both viewing the weld and gun angle), OLD steel (varies in thickness due to rust), and a journeyman status (in my mind at least) operator running the MIG welder! It'll be all buttoned up when done.

I figured you had the holes filled. With the varying thickness it is real tough to weld even for the most experienced welder. Keep up the good work!

He's doing a damn good job. Since I don't weld, I'd hate to see what would happen if this was mine.
One big burnt out hole ????
