Good job. But wouldn't be better served just replacing the whole channel with all that rust?

I umm. Dont have the funds :lol: Klassen fab channels are 400 plus bucks including shipping. And I don't trust anything Klockerholm

I noticed this was loose. Just flapping around. So I cleaned it up and whipped out the mig.

Dansk channels are suppose to be pretty good. TDCTDI recommended them. I just ordered up some from CIP1 because I don't have Klassic Fab money either.

I agree about Klockerflum. I bought some pans for my last 65' and they were made like crotchless panties. lol

I don't come on here for a couple days... :shock: Way to go! =D>

This tack weld and the picture are art. Print in grey scale or black and white I think be fantastic.

No idea on the mounts. The stock ones are pretty flimsy, so maybe the CIP1's are just as lame. :lol:

Definitely not much to the floor pans. They would wave in the wind. :roll:

Time to start tapping the oil galleys. I already pulled the plugs. I got a 100 off voucher from summit which is awesome! :D whats not awesome is i can't buy wine soo... :cry:






I call this the Ghetto blastah 5000 :lol: I tested it and it works! I just need to 3d print a 2 1/4in to 5/8 adapter for the output on the pump.

Should clean up the heads and case fantastic! A little small but it will do until summer when I make a giant version.

Meanwhile... my daily has been absolutely eating my bank account to death. Literally every other week something breaks on it. This time the tandem pump :cry: $$$

I don't see it as ghetto, rather, smart, though this morning put on the Squareback fuel pump using bailing wire. :lol:

Bummer about it eating your account! Hopefully it stops soon, you don't need more stress in your life, man.

I had a 2002 VR6 which I paid way too much for. Later, Dad needed a vehicle with aircon (the symptoms he told me he had, including a brief black out, sounded like a heat stroke) so gave it to him, but he wanted all the front suspension replaced and would pay. Put in over $1,200 and then he was too sick (I wasn't aware until too late) to remember it was a loan. I wasn't going to pay $500 to ship back here, so sold it for $200. Not upset, Dad spent a lot of money on me, point is, know all too well how little their worth and the astronomical parts costs.

Chickensoup Sun Mar 06, 2022 7:37 pm



first... remember proper ppe! :shock: :lol: my feet were coated in clay + sweat. putting on socks didnt sound appealing to me.

I got shitted on today by my mig. may be the outlet but the "bacon" sound was REAL bacony today :lol: my dad came yelling because all the lights in the house were flickering.

thus, my welds are absolute dog crap. which is annoying cuz my last welds were marvelous.





i decided f it. redo it for a third time and get it dead on even.
