v8bobber Posted May 30, 2008 Share Posted May 30, 2008 Evening all, i've recently bought a new MIG welder in order to patch up some of the holes in the chassis of the 90 i've bought. I've done a bit of welding in the past but not much. I've done a couple of patches on the outrigger and one on the rear crossmember which turned out quite well and the last couple didn't need any dressing just a bit of paint. However, i've been out in the workshop tonight in an attempt to do a patch which is on the bottom rail on oneside of the chassis and attempted to weld a plate on. It's turned out bloody awful! I've taken a sample of the same metal and welding from the top the weld turns out fine but trying to do it from underneath makes a right mess and it just seems to "sit on top". Any expert welders out there have any tips? Cheers, Dave Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
