Re: Heaven? N Hell?
Its takes everything to make the world go round. I like the show rigs myself. Sure they dont see the dirt and mud, doesnt mean they are not a work of art and some hard labor was put into them along with long hours in the shop. It amazes me that jeepers can spend so much money on their rigs, and sometimes im jealous and that frusterates me at my inability to bring in a better income. But i dont hate them for my own lacking. To me its like art, but not in a frame on a wall, instead in a parking lot at Mc donalds. I like to walk up and see those rigs polished up and shining like emeralds and diamonds. Trail tested or not I can appreciate mechanical skill and dedication to knuckle busting. I myself dont wash my rigs unless it rains, make my wheels turn for function not face lift, and dont like to spend more then a hundred on any modification. I love combining peoples ideas and fabrication in a shop. Heaven is stick welding and the arc is sizziling like bacon (as Glenn says) and you can hear the good penetration. Your hand doesnt waver and your bead is even and clean. You can see through the slag and know its a golden run before you knock it off with the hammer. Its the warmth of hot metal thru your gloves after running a good line and the crunch under your boots as you step on the shells of slag frags from all the good welds that come together. Hell is when you enjoyed welding so much it warped the dimensions of your home brew crap and it WONT BOLT UP! Start over sucker......
