  9. This is some good engineering here. :rolleyes:

    Maybe you could put those lift blocks on top of the spring to put the body three feet below ground to be even lower than the guys that "lay frame".:rolleyes:

    That car reminds me of the scene in "Ole Yeller", where the boy has to go out and put his dog down. I cried when I saw that too...

    :( Unbelievable - It's really bad on the headers, but to do that kind of welding on a vintage car is appalling. If you don't have basic good welding skills go to a trade school or two year college and take a welding class. Very uncool work.........

    Hard to believe someone actually welds like that and then install it on any thing that moved!

    I've some stupid crap, but would never post it on the net for others to ridicule. Great laugh for a dull thursday!
     
  18. It must suck to bust up your knuckles and have to get a tetanus shot whenever you wipe your car down, eh?

    If those headers were on the winning car it would start a new trend.

    That shit will grind out. :D

    Sadly, most of this lameness is still better than my horrible welding, but I ain't showing you no pics of my expertise, that's for damn sure. I grind out my welds to hide them before anyone gets a chance to see the really ugly parts. :) But, I make sure I penetrate the crap out of whatever I am welding. It just doesn't look pretty when I am finished with it. At least not until I am done with the grinder.

    How could you do this work and allow it to be seen by anybody? This crap belongs in the trash>

    Looks like successful welding done by graduates of the Helen Keller School for the Blind.
     
  26. Surprising that all of these have been posted before..............except for Mazoomas Winfieldesque work.

    The millwright that started me on welding told me the difference between an average welder and a good welder was a grinder. That may not be "entirely" true, but it's not entirely untrue either...:D
