As said above this is a tricky spot to get into to weld, waiting to put the frame into my rotisserie before I will finish these mounts.
Kevin or I will up date pictures when complete.
Thanks for all the comments.
Hey, I don't want to stir any crap or dis anybodies work. I've been welding both professionally and as a hobby for over 50 years since I was a teenager and have been known to be over critical. A point I might make is though that a weld-over unless the old weld is gone is only as good as the original. With thin section tubing you will find that multiple pass MIG will harden the steel and even a wash out with a TIG overlay could cause stress cracks any place the weld changes direction. You might want to add a little runout bead to redirect stress to a stronger area. Sorry, didn't mean to jack your thread.
