Started doing the plate work from the cage to the cab last night and got all the holes on the firewall filled in.

The dash in there looks good. The plating looks like it is really thick. Being that the tube is the structural member, couldn't you have gone with a lighter gauge?

I offered 6 to get him to return my call. I don't want to spend more then $400 on the combo. My trans is new so ill probably sell that to make my money back. If its a good running motor ill probably order a seal set and re-seal everything and call it good.

You're seeing things... The plate is 20 gauge (0.035") and is the same thickness as the cab sheet metal if not actually a tiny bit thinner. It's actually really hard to weld without burning thru it cause it's so thin. With my welder set as low as it's capable of going if I do a continuous weld it burns holes in it almost instantly so I have to actually trigger weld it. So basically what you're seeing there is spot weld stacked half way on the next spot weld stacked half way on the next spot weld... You can grab the corner of the sheet between index finger and thumb and bend the corner of the sheet, it's that thin...

But with that said, it's also not meant to be structural at all. The idea behind it is to keep the cab from flexing too much. If the cab moves around over time it cracks and just gets to the point where keeping it together turns into a pain in the butt. All six pillars will be plated similarly and the cab also is welded to the cage in the 6 places that it goes thru the floor board.

Khris, are you using such small plate because of weight? I would think 12 gauge wouldn't be much heavier and easier to weld. Plus wont dent up when it gets hit by pea gravel lol

I actually have a little lincoln 100, 110V welder in my shed also, I'm just too lazy to pull it out.

Going thin cause I've "heard", when you're welding to the cab you want to use same thickness or thinner so that if it fails hopefully it tears the material you've added rather then the cab itself making future repairs easier. Then again, on my personal truck I think I used like 14 ga and I haven't had any issues with it. Welding it to the cab was HARD though cause you had to get the heat into the plate to make the weld stick without burning thru the super thin sheet metal. It was a challenge and mine looks like Poo compared to this one.

One thing I've noticed and many that have seen it have commented that the pictures don't do it justice. My fab work and welds aren't amazing but they do look much better in person then they do in the pictures.
