Crappy pic, but here is one from my front bumper. Not near as pretty as what I have seen here.

Realized yesterday that a camera phone just can't take pictures of welds. Was building some coilover mounts and snapped this one mid way through. Added more gussets but forgot to get another picture before paint.

Seriously though, It's nice to see tips, pointers, suggestions and general advice given on here. There are a lot of very talented guys on the forum but this IS a thread for pretty welds.... I know it's apples and oranges but the "pretty weld" thread on Pirate is almost nothing BUT pictures of legit welds and a few quick comments about some posts.

Here's one I did today using my premier power welder off my Rubi. Excellent %100 duty cycle and 7000 cycle HI-FREQ. Smoothest machine I've ever run.
