Thanks again to Molly and Troy for letting the HOW happen. And especially Molly for keeping us fed through out the day. It was a spectacular display of our Association (club or whatever you want to call us).
And I am extremely happy with my slider project finally getting finished after months of procrastination. I especially thank those who helped with the
. I owe you guys greatly. I did get my weld on, but only for a minute.
My project started out with a quick check to see what we needed to do:
Kevin and Troy took on this project like their own:
Those two have mastered the weld:
They bossed me around and ordered me to keep a grinder in my hand at all times:
This was prolly after they saw my welding skills.
We had to do a little extra fabricating and welding thru the night. Eric got pics of me grinding at about 8 in the dark. I think we finished welding the sliders on at about 9 after reseting the circuit prolly 20 times.
Today was the first time I could really see the work.
They look fine from here:
Driver side weld:
Passenger side weld or should I say the easy side:
Thanks again for your help.
Today I proceeded to paint them to match the bumpers:
As well as touching up some rust on the bumpers and body:
Purty looking bastards:
Done with that crap:
Can't wait to see what happens at the next HOW.
