Looks great none the less, I might go for one of those.

I'm a 18 year union Ironworker and have welded everything under the sun. You should always put a return or (wrap) on your welds. This will prevent the weld from (breaking it's back) under stress. And the quality of a weld is far better than quantity of bad welds. Practice on some scrap before the real deal to make sure your temp setting and wire speed is good.

Looks good to me, yet Im no welding expert. Good thing Washington, Pa is only around an hour away from me I pulled my 8.8 from a junkyard call junkyard barbie. Its from a 2001 with 4.10s and limited slip didnt get to crack the cover off it yet. Im going to order the ruff stuff hard ware tonight.
