Not fair.. you just heat treated it by pouring water !!!

Btw.. that should have been done before you welded up the truck

:run:
No shoes, no fucks.

Also your wife's comments make the video gold man. Shit's hilarious.
I did a different type of destructive testing before welding. I tested my fluxcore against my tig and then handed them off to our CWI here. He actually recommended i do the fluxcore. Mostly because i was getting some under cut with the TIG. Thats more on me than the process though. But since i was welding it, we used the technique i was better at.

this is half FCAW, half TIG



and Bue, her mouth literally never shuts lol

Clean welds are clean. Can't complain with those half cuts at all.

The real question is why was Terry jackhammering a ceiling?
there grandmothers bathroom drain pipes were encased in cement. Easiest way to get to them was through the kitchen ceiling since it was already trashed from leaks. I was able to switch out of the corroded copper pipes without even cracking a floor tile

Got some title news.

The chief inspector, head of the DMV special service unit and an engineer QOA officer are coming out to Pittsburgh on 9/7 to personally inspect Exotruck.

I read over the vehicle codes again and besides fixing my horn, im goign to put that tacoma window washer bottle from foz, back into exo. Id love to run it off stock switch but i dont know if i can even trace that wire anymore.

I.
It sounds like they should be coming to your house to help you button up any details.

Please get a go pro video of any test drive.

no braggin. just trying to steer away from the DF go_blin forum before i put my foot in my mouth. Some one posted a wrecked one. I saw a lot of weld failures, stuff you wouldnt notice unless you been in fabrication business for 13 years. Not saying my welds are perfect but im also not mass producing these things.
