  • Oil Pan Mod.

    I had to make some changes to the an oil pan to fit into a 7 liter hydroplane race boat. I reworked the corners and middle sections to relieve a clearance problem with the boat. I rushed the job, looking back at it know I wished I would have slowed down and paid a little more attention to detail.
    Never time to do it right but always time to do it over.

        Looks good, especially for a rush job.

          Thanks for the replies.
          I only performed one welding operation on the pan. I had trouble welding the pan due to the fact that I removed all the paint but did not get all the plating removed. After removing the the rest of the plating that was out in the open I could not remove the plating that was trapped in the weld joint without cutting the tacks and removing the sheet metal inserts. In the interest of time management I went ahead and welded the oil pan.

            I doubt anyone will see you work once installed.
            If it don't leak, your good to go. Your eye for detail is evident in your work, keep it up.
