Thaanks ,I like that new metal also! Thank you! This project waited through a 40 coupe, a 54 Mercury and several small projects for others I am happy to finnially be working on it. I hope your coupe is done soon. Yes and it also much easier to weld on than that 82 year old stuff.... Thanks okiedokie ! Thanks sshep! I have enjoyed our recent conversations and your CS is a beauty. Thanks Joel! I am still using .023 ESAB Easy Grind mig wire. I was just looking at the spool so I could answer your question. Looks like it is about time to buy another spool. This car has been a major fabrication project so far and the welder has been in constant use.
