Well, I definitely missed the fact that this was not a recent thread.
Thank you for being so polite about it, mijeeper80
. That sort of civility is not as present, on the 'net, as it should be (present website excepted, of course).
Yes, I hope he's around, too. His build (and skills) are waaaaay more impressive, now that I've read the whole thread!
I'd like to learn more about his "self-taughtedness." IOW, I can weld (stick, MIG and gas), myself, and I'm just a BEGINNER (self-taught, plus a BOCES intro course on stick, to try to get better) but FABRICATION seems like an entirely-additional skillset.
One I find intimidating, to be honest.
For example, in the only round-tube we've seen YAM use, he's "slash cut" it, so it will mate, precisely, on an angle with the frame. I know there's jigs out there, for certain angles, but I'm curious as to how he
Also, how the H*** did he get the square-tubed front fender to match the graceful arc of the curve of the side of the hood?
Inquiring minds want to know!
(And if he tells us a fab-shop did it, my ego will feel better, but I'll still want to know how they
did it! LOL).
I'm hoping it's a case of "once you get to doing it, you just do more of it...better." LOL
YAM--do you copy? YAM...come back? Over....
Thanks again mijeeper80
