It will be eventually, I have to get the rest done and i'll see what kinda time I have left.

I wish we were doing it over from scratch cause its been a chore getting my noz into some spots, the front lower bar took me 45 min to do. laying in the car and finger tip control equals fun. Got 360 but I had to sacrifice a lense.

After 5 hours 45 min..... 60% is welded up. Had to take a break, looking at tig arc too long gives me a migraine, then im no fun to be around.

I feel for ya Vince, that's tough tedious work and to get rewarded with a migraine is just wrong.

Would one of these torches help?

haaaa, at least I have a sense of humor.


Hey! where were you today? The toilet papers out in Allens can.




Just finished the door bars then put the dash back in. It was a rough Thursday. I'll weld in the top of the diagonal Saturday.

it happens, it will be worth it when done.

What I need is a shorter lense nozzle....and a 90 degree tungsten.

I got a great idea for finger control. Anyone wanna loan me 60K to develop and proto-type??
