A real brave man that welds wearing shorts
Brave? It's more like dumb! :) When you live in Florida, it's either sweat with jeans or burn your legs.
Quarter patches are the hardest part I've welded on a trifive. Lots of metal to move around with the heat! This time I lap welded instead of a butt weld. I think it requires less metal working. I think it turned out pretty good though.

Do you use a flanging tool when you lap? Just wondering. Nice job.
