Ok smarty pants .........forget about the bed ......how EXACTLY do you weld stainless ......with T.I.G ?

LMAO...

What i do is measure everything first, then cut the stainless pipe to the correct lenght with a grinder and saftey goggles, plug the mig in to the socket, turn on the gas set the power levels correctly clamp he eath on and whack my auto darkening welding mask on, then tac it together with the mig, then you trail fit it and if it fits ok take it back off and mig the fucker up job done... If you want a nice smooth finish you can then grind the welds down then us a flap disk to get it pretty smooth then a DA with finer disks and then wet and dry it to get it super smooth..

geek

don't pretend you wear safety gear lol!

A little update for you..

When i first got her i slammed her and chucked the rims on and the offset wasn't right and the rear tyres rubbed the arches so i beat the shit out of the to get them out the way..

This has now been put back right flipped the arch lips back to where they're ment to be and trimmed about 5mm off them so they cleared removed the rear springs to make sure i've got enough clearance when loaded up..

Then i thought i'd paint her while shes off the road so i pulled her apart inside and out.. Couple little dents needed looking.. And about 10 holes in the roof..

Cheers guys, but she's not gonna be done for a while i don't think due to work picking up big time but hey i'll try though..
Remember last years CTTP i finished painting the Split the sunday morning of the cruise, i think i'm pushing my luck these days though. lol!

I'm not leaving her that low she was sat on the chassis..
If i was allowed to i would, cos it would only mean raising a bit of the chassis up a few inches and a couple mod's on the front and she'd be sat ALOT lower..
But i'm not allowed so thats that.. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

TBH honest i don't think it'll come out good at all could only afford crap paint so can only work with what i've got. Twisted Evil
