Purty welds.

Never mind the "for a dadgum novice" part. Purty, and not even relatively so.

For the rear, just go through the bumper. Stronger than the base metal then, IMHO.

Sounds like that is the route to take. I have see them surface mounted on lots of things so I honestly didn't think much to the contrary... I am such a lemming!

How would you guys suggest correcting this, one slot and fill it up super hot? Two slots if I can fit them? Have Ian mill out a section in the middle to fill them in?

Thanks!

Drew

a little concave, (more wirespeed, less stickout) but should do the trick. Looks like you could use a little more gas flow.

Another way to add some strength is to drill and plug the rear. (did I just type that?)

drill .0375 hole into d-ring mount through the base metal, just about .0125 deep. Then over bore the base metal hole. Then fill with weld.

That would work well!

That seems like a small hole, is that what I am shooting for?

1/2 to 3/4 sounds good to me. that way you can work the edges first then fill the hole. But others may know better. later robbie

That makes more sense. I could fit 4 or so 1/2" holes down the rear of the bumper.

I wouldn't go that big. on plug welds, they hold best if you have overlap, as you then spread out the haf (heat affected zone) and you spread the strength out. so, smallish hole into what you want to hold on, then bigger on what you want to hold to.. think along the way of a "T" with the flat part or top of the "T" against the flatside of the base holding the part on.

Kinda like a counter sink. I get it, small hole then bigger hole.

I won't get to this for a few more days but I will post up when I do.
