    Sat indoors watching the rain , too much time on my hands lol....

    I need to weld an L shape piece onto a crossmember for the fuel tank holder to bolt to. There will be side braces welded on as well.

    Out of interest, Which would be stronger without the braces ?

    If both metals are same thickness,

    Cut a piece of box section diagonally to make the L or
    Bash a piece of flat 90deg to shape it. ?

    Or should I man up and get under the Disco in the rain and do something else ?

    I'd be inclined to say the box would be stronger, it's been hot formed so there'll be no work hardening in the corner. It's easier too. :whistle:
