Passenger Taillight Assembly

Todd Miller

Well this is the last shot of the welding. This is a snap shot of the passenger rear tail light assembly. Again, I had to due a lot of fitting, trimming and re-fitting. Even after a had them welded in I had to trim additional metal off of the quarter inch tab that I built on the outer edge to mate up against the gasket of the new tail light assembly. As a rap up of the welding project. I borrowed a buddy's welder (MIG). It is a very nice one, Snap-on that can run at 90 or 140 amps. I got the best spark and needed the heat out of 140. I used 3 cylinders of compressed gas (Size 80 cu ft). The mixture was 75% Argon and 25% carbon Dioxide. And I used almost 3 big wheels of solid .30 gauge wire that cost only 21 bucks for a 10 pound reel.
