To much tack welding w/o my mask on. My forehead hurts .


So hard leaving things tacked and not just burning them in.

Spent 4 hrs yesterday building a chassis to bolt my seat into that also attaches my seat belts. Pretty happy how it turned out, also changed how it mounts to the buggy. Which should give me better floor setup w/ the floor boards etc....Now to do the other seat

Learning from my mistakes.

The first week or two I burned to many things in vs tacking them ie: Trans crossmember, motor mounts, seat mounts, rear lower link mount etc etc. All that stuff has now been removed and redone but tacked

As well as buying items, I have bought alot of link tabs and brackets, plank steel, exhaust, clocking ring, etc etc that I haven't or won't use.

I'd like to get the rear struts mounted, or some firewall, or some side and rear panels, or get my master/booster in position
