just a lil update.....still welding seams, and tinkering with the new h/c/i.

thats all for now!
Thats a LOT of seams .. but a very good idea that I have considered doing to my own ride. Ive noticed that even the Mark 8's got a few little welded seams in a couple areas ... shock towers rings for example, something the Tbird did not get.

yep, nothing major though....just some first gen lightning heads.

Fvcking fires.... :p
I know why the right side wasn't cathing on fire like the left......I didn't weld up 1 seam on the right side like I did on the left.....sooooo, I need you to come by again today and watch that side so I don't have to keep getting out and putting the fire out.

btw, I got the roof all welded up too, along with the dash....I finally started on the back end.
And I also started grinding in the front wheel well.

Whats your goal for doing all the seam welding? Strength? Noise? Just curious.

Forgot to add, I'm about to drop the whole rear assembly as well.....its about to be a shell.

strength mostly.....most of the interior welding will be dressed up to look better.

Go get you some disposable diapers, use the stuff inside to make a paste. Really cuts down on the fires and what areas get scorched and burned. Protects paint pretty well on surrounding areas too.

I'm serious.

I made me some a while back to protect some areas where I was using a flame and it kept all the paint underneath nice and purdy.

Im getting ready to weld and detail my subframe and K member. I already have the aluminum pumpkin. I haven't bought the LCA's yet, though I do have the spring perches on the shelf for them.
