Since you are still learning,i would get everything mocked up on the jeep,just tacked together,then take it off the jeep and weld everything flat...

But you need some more practice....

Not a promise,but i may break out my Lincoln 180 and put fluxcore in it later today or tomorrow give a few pointers and pictures..

I'm not going to take it off until I get the rest of the center section steel so I can do the top welds while its on the jeep the bottom off of it. But what am I going to be doing welding parallel lines or stitching?

I think i am going to have to run some beads in the next few days and take pics with explanations so you understand...

Today or tomorrow sometime,we just back from our yearly vacation up north with family the other day and been busy getting priorities straight before i go back to work on a local nuke next week...so give me a few days to put some time aside for it

Sometime I wish Ironworker709 was my dad or uncle busting my chops in person about technique and theory.

Hit up a metal recycler and snag some scrap by weight and practice as suggested, make a welding cart, etc. and keep practicing. It's what I've done just to be decent.

That would be sweet! I have the same machine as the OP and am trying to dial it in as well. I think I'm getting there but having a comparison from someone who knows what they are doing and is using the same equipment would be good peace of mind.
