Picked up a Welder and Looking For Some Projects
I just picked up a wire fed flux welder today and now I'm getting itchy to use it already. I was thinking about going down to the local steel shop and getting some scraps to practice with but I don't want to waste too much time, metal, and money. Maybe a couple days. Does it seem reasonable to be able to start constructing a bumper withing the first week? What are some ideas to constructing the bumper? I was thinking about integrating the two back body mounts into the bumper somehow along with the 8 holes the bumprettes bolt onto. But I'm sure the great northeast salt has made those bolts a nightmare for me. What else could I tie the bumper into? And where can I get the latching mechanism and the pivot-arm for the swing out tire carrier? What else are some little projects that I could use for practice but would also be beneficial? Thanks for the help, I already can't wait.
