    For e body password, iam having difficulty opening, so here’s my so far. Amateur Metal work. Skin has been replaced-this is the only account I have on a car site excluding for e bodies so I’m showing a camaro skin replacement for grading my metal work. I’m showing metal work that will be used in the sell of the challenger and camaro, so it’s I’d say 7.50-10 dollar a hour on welding. Sanding around 12 a hour- I’m stilling having trouble with the DA and smoothing paint with a block where they is no waves. And painting is back and forth, from 10 to 17,like my pool game is-bi polar.

      What are you using for a welder? Flux core or gas?

      Nothing wrong with flux core. Try welding on a 45 degree angle. Not dead on , try that on a couple old pieces of metal. 1/2 “ with a two inch space. Let cool then go back in should turn out like a row of nickels. Hope you dont mind me suggesting tips.

        Just remember I haven’t take a photo of the skin replaced but I do have this. Have to remember tomorrow. Capa front fenders, for the truck. We found what I did a decade ago,I forgot about it but dad found it-1 inch thick of bondo in one of the fenders. We couldn’t go with who I was a decade ago,so my dad bought two new fenders.

          Well, I’m trying to teach myself to not use the edge and keep it flat, impatience is a big factor in trying to overcome. And like what my dad says it wears the bearing out when pressing on the edge.

            The more you do the better you get. Remember to spot weld here and their. I got carried away with my outer wheel tub and it wanted to pull. So had to remined my self to not keep welding in the same place. You can use your compressed air to cool the metal when welding. Half an inch bead here and their. Work's better I found out. Looking good on what you have done. I ran Argon gas on my Tig. Also used a Mig and Mr. Tig on U tube is a good guy to get tip's from. Like how to set up your Mig. Or Tig for welding the size metal your working on. Just some tip's and keep at it you will learn like the rest of us did. Blue.
