    Not in the least, I usually have a 30a spool gun in hand either with 2# of 035 or 1# of aluminum. The angle of the torch head is what I have to keep an eye on. I`ve had this welder for a month but have had few chances to spend more than 20 minutes at a time practicing.

    wheels,

    Looks like practice is kind to you. Question: Is the air cooled torch really stiff and hard to manipulate at the angle you used to make this weld?

    wheels,

    One thing about GTAW. Nice and easy. Slow you go. If you are not in the mood, let it go to until another time, unless it is your job. Sometimes as much as I love GTAW I just want to lay it down for 24 hours and do!

    I kinda rushed the prep, a quick pass on the bench grinders wire wheel. And yes ER70s-6 3\32.
    Attached is a pic of the back side.

    Wheels,

    There is a lot of joint to fill. I really think two passes would be the better choice. Filler? ER70S-6? How did you prep?

    Hadn`t tried much steel with the Dynasty200 , but today I got a chance. Be kind I have a long way to go. I think I am shy with the addition of the filler rod!

    Stole the truck(1996 Peterbuilt) for 2k,wrecked. Damage to left front 2700
    My bill for labor 3000
    The material wes all purchaced by the customer but i estimate it at around 3k
    As far as the six weeks to build , the customer and two of his employees helped out positioning while i welded , and a lot of it on a step ladder.
    Paint job your guess is as good as mine.
    I would venture to say when it is all tallied with a few more goodies, winch for loading the car and one to control the loading ramp,he will have an eye-catcher for under 14k!

    Pops is a gearhead! That 327 had all the bells and whistles.

    What et in the 1/4? my dad had a 67 nova with 327 all steel ran high 10's in the 1/4. that nova brings back some memories different body style though we never got to run pomona we went to palmdale a lot though pomona was not open to the public @ the time only for the nhra. looks sweet keep up the good work.
