    Ya, I have to do more practicing I use a Hobart 210 MVP Mig welder with Argon gas. I got her mostly put back together tonight. I did a full rebuild on the shocks. Hopefully she holds together
    Just got some polishing left to do

    A little FYI, generally pure CO2 is a LOT cheaper than "Gold Gas" aka Argon and works for nearly everything you'd ever need it for. If I recall correctly, Argon is needed for very heavy/thick welds and is over kill for anything thinner. Definitely research it out, or just try it some time, but my dad runs CO2 for just about everything he does. He mainly welds around 1/4in or smaller though. Also the local air gas store charges very little difference between tank sizes, so best bank for your buck is the biggest CO2 cylinder you can get. Smaller ones are nice for lugging around though.

    I keep seeing that 350x sneaking in some of your photos =).

    I should probably say, my comments on the welds are only minor adjustments, I've so soooooooo much worse welds before..... like this! My poor OEM 350x exhaust that I had to cut off (saved the muffler side, head pipe was shot anyway).
