welding method used to replace rust,fill holes and join meta

Postby u3 on Wed Apr 17, 2013 1:19 pm

hi all

anyone got the low down and methods used to weld with cars?

i want to look at starting to learn to weld and needed to know what all is needed? do those invertors that are sold at game work well? will that do the job for welding on a car?

i am looking at various mods and fabrications that will need welding and i can do most of the other work. just not the welding..yet..

so please school me...how do you weld..what do you use?

that is an epic thread and wht a build...
my problem is, the only people i have seen do builds like that are those who are already in the trade..

and then also deep pockets help...i mean being able to order sometihng at the drop of a hat from germany is no joke..

maybe one day when im old and grey and have lots of cash il be able to do the same...

i also realised that i need a bigger garage...sjoe..that mans garage is amazing...
for now..its keep my head down and graaf earn some bucks...pay off the essentials and invest..

but 1 question..how does that help me learn to weld??lol...it just made me jelas and want to get stuck into a rebuild...and then i realised i cant afford it...lol
