    I agree with FK. Another example....There are tons of trailers running around with way worse hazards. Not saying it's right either. I've never seen something like this fly out from under a car and cause a wreck, but about a month ago I did see a trailer tire come flying off in front of me and caused the car behind me to wreck.

    Your position is valid, but I think your concern is over estimated. That's my take at least.

    Actually, I bet most people who know how to make a good weld would be surprised at how bad a weld will still hold things together. Not that good welds aren't better, they're just out of reach for some of us (like me). Also because most welds are not pushed anywhere near their limits in practice

    I'm sorry but I don't see it the same way.
    Not on this project anyways.
    The welding isn't all that great...true. BUT, it is only welded to what is basically sheet metal. Some of his comments would have better been left out.
    If you had to tear it out you might find it was stuck on there a lot better than you think. Looks isn't everything.
    I was expecting a much worse job from the description.
    As far as killing people goes...I highly doubt that. Because it is IRS, that part isn't load bearing. It may crack and come loose and cause a ruckus, but it certainly won't fly out and hit someone's windshield. Worst it will do is lock up and skid, and I doubt that as well, because it will make a lot of noise before then I believe.
    Not everyone is going to go to college and get a welding degree to weld their parts. Not with Eastwood, Harbor Freight and all of China selling welders to everyone cheap.
    This is happening everywhere every day all around us. And it is far from the worst example I've seen. Loads of factory welds on todays cars are every bit that bad looking. Doesn't make it right.... it just is what it is IMO. Just sayin'

    These folks are a danger to themselves and others. But then because they're on YouTube they think they are the WFFA on this subject. (WFFA = Worlds Foremost Fricking Authority) There's a huge difference between ignorance and stupidity. Stupidity being terminal and almost impossible to fix. I did a better job of welding the very first time I handled a MIG rig. Too bad nothing will happen to them unless the rear end falls out and bounces through someones front windshield. They're too stupid to understand what the word safety means, let alone liability.

    I think he should definitely practice a little more before he tries his next welding job. He'd certainly be happier with the end product. Almost a shame to spend that kind of money on parts only to have them butchered with sorry welds.

    Well, I built a whole flatbed for my pickup with the polarity on my MIG welder set backwards. Like this guy I have no welding knowledge, training, or ability and so far it's held up just fine. I didn't watch the video but from what I saw it's just not possible to judge the weld quality. Maybe MIG welding just isn't that complicated...

  • Inexperienced, Video Welding on street Honda's AWD Differential and subframe

    In This video it shows this guy, SP TUNING on YouTube, is cutting and welding on his own Rear Sub frame and Differential mounts for his custom "All wheel Drive" Honda build that is OEM FWD only. He has never had any training doing any welding at all, and no training on welding on street car chassis's and it shows in his welds quality. He has hardly no experience welding and even explains to not look at his ugly welds on video and never showing a good shot of his finished welds. The welds are porous and look very dirty if you pause the video to look at these welds and did not get good penetration and i am very afraid he will injure people and/or children on the street in car malfunction and inevitably car accident, especially since he has shown videos Street Racing and pushing these Honda's parts to the limits and constantly breaking things. If he constantly breaks OEM parts how do you think his inexperienced MIG welding on his street car's rear sub frame and differential mount will keep this intact while driving on the street and highway. I have family in the area he is in and I am especially afraid for them if his rear mounts welds crack and launch parts or wheels or differentials out the back causing accidents and harm.

    When car accidents are EASILY in the top 10 killers for adults and especially children this aggravates and upsets me that he wouldn't get this done by a certified professional welder, when I'm certain he could afford it. He says he was being supervised by a guy, completely unknown guy that doesn't even know whether or not the shielding gas on the tiny Eastwood MIG welder is getting low. Which is probably what also happened as the welds look very dirty and porous(i can see many small holes in the welds) even though he does not give us a good up close shot of them. Even he said himself they were very ugly welds, and I would NEVER trust an UGLY weld especially holding my rear drive train on the cars chassis. This is the exact reason for RIGOROUS inspection for a street car, so things like this aren't allowed on the road to eventually kill our kids and fellow motorists. I mean enough car accidents happen everyday without the irresponsible people that do things like cut on their cars chassis and weld their **** car's most important drive train parts on there chassis with cold dirty welds. How does he even know if those welds are strong enough to withstand the power he will be throwing to the rear, the bumps and vibrations of everyday street driving and how will he get it inspected and passed if it is that heavily modified and welded on by what seems like a complete welding amateur. The only way he will find out is if he drives it and most likely speeds it down public roads and it snaps off from the amount of strain and vibration from a high powered Honda engine sent to the rear drive train that is welded on with dirty welds from a complete inexperienced welder. I can't believe he would try to weld this himself when he knows he can't weld and that he will be risking peoples lives when going down the highway. A professional, certified welder is the only person who should be welding this heavily on a street car's chassis. And he welded on a custom awd system that can turn his tires at thousands of RPM's. I just know this is a disaster waiting to happen, and when it goes he is gonna take out other people on the road with him, only in the pursuit of speed. These seem to be his practice welds and even the guy that was "supervising him" sounds very in confident about these welds and situation. This is insane in my opinion and i seriously need some serious, more professional optinions on this matter. Please go to this video to and at least comment on what you think about this. I have commented very nicely about this and he has responded very sarcastically and very blase about this, and to be honest I am livid with his irresponsibility and uncaring responses. lol is the main thing he has been responding with. "lol" I Take this very seriously and have had many family members hurt unconditionally from motor vehicle accidents.

    I have been following this young guy in Florida working on his Honda's and most of his videos called How-To videos when very many of them show incorrect very "dirty" ways of working on these cars and assembling things, i would know because i used to own and work heavily on the same car he is working on, the Acura Integra, and went to college for MIG, TIG and stick welding and car mechanics and car performance and just happen to own the full Integra manual. Just recently the videos being put out is him starting to cut his street car's chassis and weld on heavy rear drivetrain parts to his honda's chassis that do not belong there as OEM. This isn't legal for a completely inexperienced welder to be doing on a street legal car? Righhht? My family told me i should report this to the police as we are scared for our family in that area. I do not feel this is SAFE for any old person to be welding on his suspension parts, differential mounts, axles, and subframe that is going to be driven on the street and especially since he is a known to street race cars.
