Nuts, yep it is something you need to do regularly to get the feel of your machine and material.

If there is no smoke after I install the battery, I will then declare no issues but...

You can weld stainless with mild wire and vice versa.
Generally I say if you don't have gas, don't do it.

Some people say they get good results with gasless wire, but I think those people have never welded with gas.

Stop picking on Jacko, that's my Job! Hey Jacko get some bloody gas for Christ sake. I use steel wire and co2 mix all the time to weld stainless. Works fine..

8 October 2017
Picked up the Mondeo fan I ordered last week.

Covered both kick panels in black carpet I purchased from Bunnings. Had to do one twice as the edge that faces into the cabin and you can see, I got wrong on one side in terms of which flap pulled over which bit first. All fixed now though.




Purchased more 90 and 45 deg mandrel bends. While at the shop admiring their TIG welding skills, they showed me a 2.5inch piece of titanium pipe they had welded pipe-cuts onto to get a tight bend. Pretty impressive, particularly the impact different gas cups made to the weld.

Over to Ian C’s I head to weld the x-pipe. It was handy Ian has better TIG skills (not that hard really) than mine given my gaps in some of the bends. After some flapper disc time they have turned out pretty well. As this is not a show car, I don’t plan on painting or finishing these pipes any more. The grey car experience was lesson enough that rarely (next will be the first actually) do people get down and look under the car.




Spent the rest of the weekend watching Bathurst while cutting a few more pieces for the push toward the diff with the exhaust. I purchased a metal cutting saw to make things easier- and it certainly does.



And the crappy job of the week goes to the extraction of a small length of old pipe out of one side of the rear muffler. After cutting, hitting, cold chisel work, a bit more hitting, twisting and vice work, I managed to get the thing free. Fortunately the bottom neighbour is not home as I managed to fling the bloody thing onto her roof. It is OK, I will throw it into the garden when I clean out her gutters.

15 October 2017
Through the week, the legend of exhaust, JBB, came over and helped finish the exhaust. The second pair of hands and eyes was invaluable in getting the angles and distances for the pipe right. Sorry to the neighbours for the last cut we did at 9.30; it was necessary.

The task that took the longest (after figuring out the new drop saw has a dodgy switch) was
how we were going to go over the diff and meet the muffler pipes that straddle the petrol tank. I knew I could use a 90deg and 45deg to come up from the floor but the angles and length is a two person job. You need one person to hold the pipes and be sentient enough to move them in useful direction, hold them there while the gap is measured and not cry- definitely not one for the wife! Here is how the β€˜diff straddle’ looks:





What we did notice was that the diff pinion and therefore tailshaft is not centred in the floor pan, being slightly offset to one side. This required a bit of compound angle magic by JBB to get the angle off the x-pipe just right- which he did. Here is how we ended the night:



A big thankyou to JBB for holding, flappering and figuring, especially on making the pipes parallel when viewed from the rear. And to Leilland for keeping H at bay during the night.

After the pipe victory, I pop riveted the three relay panel I made a while back underneath the battery tray. You will be hard pressed to know it is there but for the fuses that stick out just enough.

Today, I headed over to Ian C’s and we TIGed up the pipes we tacked up midweek. TIG is really something you need to keep practising and by the end of the day I was finally getting the knack again. I think last week I was a bit soft on the amps; not a problem this week with Ian C’s coaching. Ian is still a much better β€˜gap filler’ but given JBB’s angle proficiency, this was in less demand this week.



Here is how they are now pre flappering- which will not be much.







Thanks again to JBB and Ian C for their help.

Through the week I connected the fuel line to the carby and pump. Ready for a test.

I flappered the exhaust to get the high points down flatish. I used 120 to get rid of the small tack welding dags and ended by painting the steel flanges so they don’t rust. We must have tacked it enough as it still fits well. Oh, and I marked on the rear muffler where the diff bends end so I can start thinking about how to join them. There is not enough room for flanges- doh!

The weekend was filled with Midnight Oil in the Hunter so nothing much else to report.

The concert was fantastic! The music, voices and stage presence is just like it was 30 plus years ago.
