That gives me some hope. I haven't ever welded due to a like 60 year old welder. LOL

ah sweet memories of my first experiences welding. my buddy "teaching" me nearly blinded himself because he thought he was too macho to need a face shield. myself and his lady friend spent the next few days leading him around with bandages over his eyes. it was great fun for me because i got to walk him into doorways and face first into women who were... umm... well, shall we say very... aahh... blessed... in ways very pleasing to the eyes. i kinda wish i would have taken little Napoleon to the bar when he had his "condition" now.

he is probably one of the cock mongrels from the contour forum. i dont care what they think. i have read through all of the posts and these guys dont know what they are talking about. i know some of the welds on the crossmember braces arent the best but the welder i have will not weld that thick stuff.. that is why im buying a new welder. we will see how it turns out in the end. they can talk shit all they want.

those honda guys are just hating because they dont want to admit they got owned by a focus with an lsx turbo swap, although there is a honda S2000 with an LS1 swaped in also.
