Final Welding

Posted by Adax , 06-23-2013 · 1,606 views

With the tray into place, the remaining cage can be tacked and welded into place an I can finally get the car off to paint. It's pretty straightforward as I had already cut and fit the pieces before the tray went in. Lets hope they still fit.

Unfortunately I have to again flip the car over to finish the welding. It's not all that hard with the rotisserie but I have to remove the sub-frames to flip it which takes a bit of effort.

Now the final back-side welds can be completed. This view is from inside the inverted car looking at the underside of the main hoop.

I'll try to be modest but I really like the looks of this now that it is finished. I seriously debated leaving the tray unpainted but decided to paint it white like the rest of the cage.

It's now at the painter's. I stopped by OPM on the way to fish for some compliments and Ryan was kind enough to point out two areas that I forgot to weld. Fortunately I was able to weld it at the shop but it was windy and they are pretty ugly.

Looking great! One thing about painting the tray white is that many guys say it adds much more of a reflection in the rear glass than a darker shade. I've always had a dark color, but read about others painting their interior white except the tray.
