    You also have to remember this is galvanized sheet metal I'm installing in there. I can go back over the welds with a can of Cold Gal and it will be good for a very long time. I'm sure he will paint it since that was the purpose of replacing the rusted out metal. He wants all of the spots that the bead blaster would destroy replaced, but that, I'm afraid, would be 80% of the body. I will finish replacing the upper shelf, weld the shelf divider back in and replace a few spots around the tub then get it out of my way til he can get wheels and tires to replace the old ones.


    Yes, I will be keeping the red one unless Alex does some serious convincing for me to leave it with her...lol

    Well I think that is cool that you can do that. If we had needed metal replaced we would have had to hire someone like you to do it. My husband has mentioned that he would like to know how to weld but he does not as of yet.

    My job here at the shipyard is maintaining all of the welding equipment so I refined my skills through testing the equipment. It also gives me experience on some of the finer types of welding like tig welding. I do a lot of research on new types of processes to try out in different scenarios for our company. Blah blah blah...foreign language.lol


    I like building things from scratch. The sheet metal pieces were all cut with a 4" grinder to get the round side in order to fit the nose. I could have forced him to order precut pieces and just welded them in, but what fun would that be?

    Not surprised at all, just figured it might get boring reading some of that stuff. I have several ladies who I go to for learning DIY projects around the property. I have the skills to do a lot of things, but enjoy hearing other ideas from more experienced people no matter the gender. A lady neighbor at our last place taught me how to rebuild the hydrostatic transmission on our riding mower.

    It's day 1 of not smoking. I am on the patch, it's doing nothing - but it's the patch based on a pack a day, I think I could probably do with a second patch.

    I could do with something to punch.
