Re: PO has me PO'd

Rusty metal cut out, now ready to weld new piece in

I prefer to use my small dremel with a cutoff wheel, less intimidating than my angle grinder

In the aftermarkets infinite knowledge, they decided to leave off the last bit of the B post, down around the rocker

So it leaves any attempt to repair flying in the breeze, had to use the old fly cut method

Honestly I don't know how a factory makes this welding stand for 45.00$, do they pay workers. Do they pay workers. 45 cents a/hour or is the metal from old fridgedars

Any way good product, now I can get some welding done

Hey Jim, that patch looks great, just one more to go. As you know a lot of things in the B pillar area.

Thanks for stopping by, as you know, Stopping your build time, to post up, takes away your progress time where I really want be

I thought I was through with the B post until I realized the bottom 1/2 rear supports the lower 1/4 panel, would be flying in the breeze, so to speak

There is A LOTTTT OF FAB WORK in the B pillar area, at least in the RUST BELT

If you can't weld good, weld alot and grind

My preferred method of grinding is my Dremel with a 1 1/2 cut off wheel, far less intimidating then my angle grinder, slower, yes, but far more accurate
