Got the glass in today and it fits nicely, next step mount and bond spider and doors, then recheck glass fit. Then I will store the glass in a safe place.
Thanks for that, I am sticking with steel filler rod. Building this car is a lot of fun.I would advise come caution and research before using a stainless wire to weld carbon steel. That can lead to some hot cracking, need proper ferite content, and mismatched strength and ductility issues. Also stainless steel filler is more expensive. Just a suggestion. Build looks great!
Thanks for the advice on stainless rod, for now sticking with steel filler but will try stainless down the road.Another good information or "trick" ;
Use stainless steel rods for material to weld , you will have a cleaner weld aspect and a much more efficient "mobilitiy " on welded areas ( those being always very stiff no problem at all )
Using those and welding properly ( say on variuos area depending on the frame evolution ) you will prevent alot of " warping" , bending and shrinking
Be carefull too to check the temp of wires when welding long welds , you can damage internal connections of the tungsten holder ; those "cheap " welders are nice and Ok but with no water cooling they can live short cuts or watever connection issues when coming hot after long welding session at more than 90 amp ( say welding in one shot for more than 5mn !!)
Chek also frequently status of the wire end bolted to the minus ( tends after some monthes of use to delaminate and become hot ( so have to be shorten a little and bolted again after may be ayear or so
