That's awesome man, definitely post up some progress pics.
Alright coco now post pics when doneUpdate Got the top crossbar, press bar and work table welded up. New cheap welder is doing fine so far. Will post more pics when I get the parts painted up. Have some light forest green metallic left over from painting a hood, so will use that for the press.
Also found button diodes to fix my old welder, even though must parts houses list them as obsolete. 92 model welder is now up and running again.
Get them pics already!Well it started when a freeze plug started leaking on my 90 camaro rs 3.1 dd. Then I decided to do the job right on the 23 year old car. So I pulled the engine and transmission. Changed the freeze plugs.
Decided to change all the vacuum hoses, heater hoses, and other assorted old rotten rubber parts. Next came the motor mounts, and they are a bear to change as the control arm must be separated from the k member to get to the bottom nuts holding the mounts on.
From there I decided, well as long as the engine compartment is vacant, might as well clean up in there. That escalated to sanding the paint and now going to re paint in there. Have about 2 quarts of color left over from when I painted the car a couple of years ago. Will have to paint the front bumper cover when I'm finished, if I ever finish finding things to repair, because of the parking lot scratches it has endured.
Hopefully, pics tomorrow of the empty cavern.
