UPDATE
This upcoming week I'm going to work on shaving the ring gear down on the 14 bolt. Can't weld the bottom plate until I check the clearances in between..
Also planing on building a truss. Planing on something low profile.

I am a machinist, and I am definitely learning to weld better, but I do want to say welding is not really part of my job often, more of a hobby.

Weld your tube's to the center section, keeps them form spitting the factory plug welds, yes even with a truss trust me.

Build looks good keep at it.
