Very interested in your weld pics, and what welding method used.I cannot paint. I will be farming that out but will probably drop a layer of primer on just to hold rust at bay until I get it painted.
Do you want before pictures of my welds or just the finished product?
Edit: those of you that thought this was a complete loss, what are you thoughts now? Do you still think I should have walked away? Why or why not?
Oh no, won't that thin the metal at the edges? Won't you have to use some body filler anyhow? A shame to undo that craftsmanship.Too bad I have to cut it all out and try again. The welds either sank the surrounding metal or had porosity because I ran out of argon.
On a positive note I got the trunk to latch and that it lines up with the body for the most part
No I will be cutting into clean metal. The only problem will be that the gap between the 2 panels will be larger which will be more difficult to weld.Oh no, won't that thin the metal at the edges? Won't you have to use some body filler anyhow? A shame to undo that craftsmanship.
