Do you think the 3M in the stock mount would make the vibrations super harsh still? The roof sealant is pretty low and IDK how much it would improve over stock.
what is the stock dogbone durometer? 55-60 still seems fairly soft so I'd think you'll be ok with it, thats the range for most BMW "aggressive street" mounts and nobody seems to have issue with those........and those BMW weenies have pretty sensitived vibration sensors...

Looking at signing up for a welding class this winter since I can't get any more classes I "need" at GVSU

thoughts on if I should start with Oxyacetylene welding or just jump straight into MIG/TIG?

When I learned I starting with arc welding. Then mig. And then tig.

Oxyacetylene is a bitch. Your referring to braising with brass to join dissimilar metals when.you say that correct?

Mig is just like arc, only you don't have to strike the welding rod to get it going as you do in arc. As well as you don't have to move across and down (arc) , as the mig is constantly fed wire automatically

Oxy, which I didnt think had to be brass but I think you have the idea right:


Arc:


TIG:


the TIG class includes MIG as well. those are the 3 class options GRCC has.

Heading north tonight Klod/Aku! As for welding, I only know some mig, and it's fairly simple as long as the metal isn't thin. (Which is better for tig at that point anyway.)

You will rarely use oxyacetylene. When I learned it was a brass rod covered by welding flux. Basically get the two pieces of metal hot enough for the brass to melt, kinda like soldering but laying a bead down.

Mig and tig will be more beneficial. Especially if you keep buying BMW.
