Just taken an outrigger off the Kombi, which is spot welded to the chassis and top hat. I was going to drill a holes in the new outrigger and plug weld it into place, following the original spot welds, but all the photos I have seen of outriggers being replaced show beads of welds run along the seams where it joins. Why is this? Is is easier/quicker/stonger? Or is it just personal preference? I've never welded in anger before, this'll be my first job on the Vdub! Cheers folks, Mike.
