Its actually pretty good stuff. The laser blanks were sent through a time saver, then when we formed them. I had the guys wipe off the part before loading it in the press and after forming they wiped off any oil residue. I tried to think ahead on this part, I wanted a good weld.

The edge on the thicker piece is actually a laser edge, the face of it we orbital sanded smooth with 60 grit, then wiped clean.

I had to think ahead to the painter, so all surfaces were dust, oil, free.
