my first welding job

hi

took a welding class this winter.

made some rockers...

got them painted with some por15...will top cost with black hammerrite...

pictures probably aren't good enough (hopefully) to see my not so pretty welds...but i'm pretty sure they'll hold up to most anything...

anyway...my wife gets sick of being carted out to the garage to look at my junk so i'm sharing with you guys...

thanks for listening...

Re: my first welding job

Look nice but somehow you need the smell of just welded to make it complete.

I was thinking of welding up some rockers for my jeep but don't know how to make them for a fiberglass tub.

Re: my first welding job

i'm putting these on my fiberglass tub...just going to put a couple 1/8" x 3" x 3' straps on the back side to tighten 'em up...

i probably should find a way to tie them into the frame or maybe just even the seat hardware...

Re: my first welding job

Nice job. I know what you mean about dragging your wife out to the garage to show her what you've accomplished. She usually doesn't have a clue what I'm talking about when I describe my "accomplishment". Look honey, I snorkeled the transmission breathers on my atv. Blank stare.
