Lots of hot, fast, short tack Welds, moving around, and taking your time to let each one cool is the ticket!

Your Pal, Gary

At first I thought Gary is having a bad day. Then I saw its this guys first post. Newbie section first. Questions with full answers next.

What good are Garys directions going to be if you can't follow YB's?;)

Mark, (I am laughing as I type...) RIGHT ON THE MONEY!

OP didn't ask WHAT they were , just IF there were,..........

Like using a cloth that is wet for a heat sink,

Tacking at opposite ends to let the weld cool to put your hand on the tack,

I'm sure the body guys will chime in with ideas, too.

When I ran a restoration shop, we replaced both quarters on a 1963 Thunderbird, door seam to taillight panel.

My body guy who was VERY good, used the structural adhesive designed to do that.

NO warpage, extremely good strength, AND WATERPROOF on the back seam.

Probably BETTER than new!!!

Your Pal, Gary

I saw NO downside....

If it is a newish car it'll have hightensile steel and you are better off bonding as Gary suggested. If it is earlier tin then getting good advice will depend on what you plan to use for welding: gas, mig or tig?

I like to hold panels together with screws, nice and tight. Then move my tack welds all around to allow for cooling, eventually filling in all the spots.

Welcome aboard Phuckstick!;)
