I am learning how to weld as i go. Bought a little 110 welder from harbor freight. Got some scrap metal off a job site and just started welding. Still not great at it....lots of grinding.

I probably will buy or build a heavy duty bumper eventually. I just got bored and wanted to see how it would turn out.
