From information i gathered from you guys and other threads out there the right way to weld overhead or upside down is to use the same settings for welding flat, maybe turn up the wire speed a bit.
Somewhere suggested to trim the shroud so it is level with contact tip to avoid spatter build up in the nozzle
I will be welding outside my garage for better ventilation , fire blanket to isolate the tank, then I may put a sheet of kingspan between tank and body to fully keep it from sparks....and also water hose ready.
That is a bloody good idea, once you've got your technique sorted it'll be easier when you lying on your side twisting yourself into a knot to do a weld under a vehicle.i'd clamp some bits of thin scrap to the roof of your garage and get plenty of practice in a comfortable position because trying to weld overhead under a car for the first time isn't going to end well.
Oops my Argon Co2 regulator is reading near 0 , i dont know if there is enough gas in the bottle (9ltr) for welding two patches.??
