    If you have the stamina have a look at my thread on my 75 rebuild.
    Lots of crappy welding there and I tried to show warts and all not just the welds that went to plan. (There are one or two I think)
    I also hate seeing a repair only after it's been ground down to a half presentable fashion.

    @jpmillermatic also shows his welds in their raw state and he uses gas-less flux core so is up against from the start.

    @pippyjeto Have you any jems to share with us?
