Trying to keep the garage warm enough to work in.

Anyone want to help drill out spot welds and cut sheetmetal?

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

just saw this, so I don't know how long you've been asking. I sure wish to learn. problem would be the timing, I work swing. Do you do sundays? or can I just hang out?....... Jeronimo

Damn, I literally just got done tack welding the last piece to the rear of the car.

BTW, welding sheet metal sux arse.

Troy, you mentioned you might need to do this to your car, it's really not as hard as I thought it would be.

Spot welds used to be a pain, then I found some nifty tools. Spot weld drills are worth evey penny. The arbor is about $25, and the bits are double sided...3 for $18. they make perfect cut around the spot weld. For welding....I bit the big bullet and got a real welder (too bad I paid snap-on prices) with wonderful sheet metal options like reverse polarity, and auto-spot. now floor pans take literally a third of the time.

The cutting wasn't too bad, but having an "auto-spot" would be cool.

There is definately an auto darkening helmet in my immediate future though, as doing multiple spots down the join line is a hassle wtih conventional helmets. A stitch welder would be sweet.
