Now that the weather is better its sunny and a little wind we can start welding the sheet metal onto the gaps were the most rusty parts were.
We have there for a MIG /MAG welding machine with 0,8 mm wire for thin sheet metal is this enough. If you choose thinker wire the amp's will also increase so you burn through the sheet quicker. So 0,8 mm you can put the amps relative low and there for welding the thin sheets is easyer.
Trying and tacking the metal plates into place. before welding them solid
When the welding is complete I grind the think welds flat
For the larger plates we have drilled some holes were the inner plate connects with the outer. The holes will form a spot weld
Seen from the inside and welded from the outside
Left the first hole is filed and connects the inner and outer plate.
Many spot welds needed for a proper connection
grinding it so the old and new peaces are flat
The same with te front plate this is a bit larger but the same
as the smaller plates
