Maybe try some different wire? I have a couple spools if you wanna try one. It's almost like there is flux wire in the welder. :?

could be that the tip of the welder is dirty... I'll try changing it - maybe that will help

Ah yeah maybe that's it. Do you cut the wire before each weld? I find it helps get a good clean spark started too.

More done this weekend...

1) Finished the driver door bars (put a diagonal in for more stiffness)

2) reinforced the front shock tower braces

3) dropped the whole rear-end

4) Started on the rear subframe tie-ins.

Sorry for the cell-phone pics again

I hope to be DONE the cage tomorrow night Well the bending and notching at least. After that I still have all the gussets to do.

Wow, that looks terrific Shaun! Keep up the good work!

(And keep up using a regular camera. No one is impressed by your hipster shit. )
