There is a masked man in the garage!

welding130630Having July 4th fall on a Thursday this week is creating chaos with my travel schedule. Each appointment scheduling call I’ve made is finding everyone taking a few days off … I should have done the same?

Anyway, spending time in town gave me a chance to dust off my TIG welding skills or lack there of after my brother dropped off a couple lawn chairs which are in need of repair. Since I’ve been wanting to repair the rocker panels and 4 jack points on the Mercedes 300D and have been leery of my welding expertise, a little practice was helpful. I’ve already treated the rust multiple times and need to do some final grinding and sanding before adding new metal, a zinc chromate primer and a few coats of TP Tools and Equipment’s Miracle paint. (still yet to be decided – below)
