So I have the typical rotted out frame rails where the trans skid plate mounts. I picked up some 3/16" x 3" angle and some 3/16" flat to box the frame rails. I've mocked up and cut out the angle to fit then drilled and mounted nuts to the inside of the angle. Then I dropped the skid plate and knocked out and cut out the rotted bottom of the rail. I've got the drivers side cleaned up and mounted the angle into place. I've begun the welds with a Miller 135-.025 wire- 75/25 argon/co2 mix-voltage 4-wire speed around 70? and feel I'm getting good penetration on both pieces of steel.
My question is for the welding pros on here. Would I be better off breaking out my dads AC/DC stick welder or am I good to go as long as I place another row of beads along these for added strength. If the stick is a better way to go what rods would you use?
