Respect to them both, the black one was almost beyond saving.

Respect tothem both, the black one was almost beyond saving.

My thoughts exactly.. I posted before but couldn't remember where.  That's some patience right there, I love to see this rather than scrap.

Ive done much worse than no1 but then I have restored british cars which have a habit of rotting  :grin:
From the small screen im currently using it looks like to me.
1: his welding skills are quite good considering the Clark welder and its limited adjustment he has available.
2: He has the settings incorrect and not good penetration.
3: From the pics looks more like large spot-welds rather than continuous welded seems, the rest of his thead does make me feel i really need to do mine as the rest of his work is really nice.

I'm no welding expert so wouldn't know about point 2... However I think the spot welds were only temporary to just liine it all up.
