I envy you guys who can weld ! because of my pacemaker the DR's wont let me, sucks, but i'm glad i have plenty of friends who can weld for me, but 1 i just dont like to ask all the time and 2 i hate to wait, so can you guys move to Scottsdale ? like next door , AND soon ?? haha
What can I say carnuts think alike. I think I seen post of yours on my my buddy's build thread (BCtoyBox) on another site. He has a Prostreet 56 GMC also done the rounded bed corners and I believe you post how you done yours differently than him when someone asked about it. Its always nice to see the many ways we accomplish the same goals. I welcome it thats how I continue to learn.
Anyway its nice to met you buddy.
Stay healthy and keep rodding even if you have to depend on buddys to help you out now and then. Forget welding and leave that to your buddies.
I see you say 1/16 th filler rod, what grade of rod? ER 70S-2?
Actually I used ER70S6. My understanding is 6 has a higher silicon for slightly contaminated base metal and with a 50+ year old fender I wanted to play on the safe side. I clean the metal as best I could though. I use ER70S-2 wire also, but 6 works pretty good for me as an all around filler.
