grind down the welds and fill in again. To many imperfections/ slag pockets for structural support. Also it looks like you heat is a little hot and you're traveling too fast

Keep your head up. Those who weld well have put in a lot of time... Try to get what you can from anyone that will give advice, education cost $. Wether it's your material, self teaching, vocation, or a mentor. Just take what you can, people will pick apart welds faster than a scab on their ass.

since your starting off try using 6010 rod. its a fast freeze rod with deep penetration. you'll be able to learn your angels and speed. from there go to 7018(my favorite) and kust focus on your puddle. you'll get better give it time

6013 is easier to learn on so he can figure out how fast he needs to feed the rod and move it along the weld
6010 is not easy to start with

how do you figure? 6013 is the same as 6010 with less penetration. Now that plate for his diff skid I'm guessing is 1/4"-3/8" thick you want good deep penetration right?
