New mach one blue
I'd have to understand how to do that in order to try it lol. This was just a flux core 85 amp farmhand welder we have on the farm. I used it to do rust repair on the car when I first built it. It was this or the old Lincoln stick welder he has. I figured it would just burn holes in the thin frame metal. Basically this little welder has a high and low voltage setting and then a 10 speed wire feed control. For the thin parts it had to be on low and about 2-3 on the speed.did yout try it negative on the trigger side and positive on the body side then turned the heat up a bunch?
Ground was on a body bolt near by, and I did push the welds. Tougher to see, but it would lay down a bead that way instead of the popcorn mess, and no holes blown in.where was your ground wired to?
flux core runs better when the stinger is ground and the positive is on the part youre welding.
and as per matt, laying the gun damn near parallel with the part youre welding and PUSHING the weld, wont blow holes.
There are still remnants of what this place once was. So much collaboration and helping each other out. Miss the days when this place was really buzzing.that's whats up. this is why I love this place lol
My thought was to weld a thick plate onto the firewall that has bolt holes drilled and tapped into it, then I could bolt the two bars from the 3rd point to that bar thats welded onto the firewall. Wagons do not have bolt holes up there in the center, so I'd have to weld on whatever I use. ESP wants $300 for a couple strut bars, but since its summer and I'm strapped for cash, I'll be welding up my own. What I might do is start out with a 2 point and if we still have problems, then add the 3rd point of attachment. I don't care about the look or anything, this is specifically for functionality. Plan to start building it tomorrow.2 is easier to make and install.
3 is more rigid, but you have to sorta reinforce the firewall.

Soul, we've missed you for a year! Glad to see you posting again.... hopefully we get a chance to meet up with our cars at some point this year, pending any falling trees....
The braces and strut bar are kick ass!
