    Yes, just back off a bit mate as I really think you're gonna ace it with the top coat.

    Just to set the record straight... It's not @veitnamcam s welding... It just a random birdshot I found outside the hotel door.

    No! More grinder needed by the look of it to me Spanners.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I was thinking they missed their chance for another crack at a vertical up/ down err sideways on the left hand side.

    Maybe they just ran out of seagulls to finish the job.

    Either way I'm sure that will just buff out after another a top coat

    Cheers

    Watched a guy stick welding on the wharf in Brasil without eye protection. Lined up the stick closed his eyes and struck the arc and went with his mental image. It was better than that Spanners, only prob for him was long term eyelids don't protect you from the flash!

    So you got yourself a welder then!

    Get to see a few examples like that when they eventually give up and decide to get someone to fix it properly.

    all he needs is a gas plant to melt that weld flat and it will flow and join the hinge beautifully .....hmmm

    Hope he didn't get paid for that turkey shit .

    Be 110-120% stronger than the parent metal.

    I assume your joking but if not don't build that trailer!
