looks good chris. making one up myself at the moment, how thick was the aluminium you used and what type of aluminium was it? Does it make much of a difference when it comes to welding if your using a soft or hard ally?

i guess that depends on what finish you want on it

This is 2.5mm alloy using 1.6mm filler rods

i am not sure on the grade of filler at this point or the alloy grade for the sheets- i just get off cuts and run some test welds to work out the best Amps for that alloy im using.

its just a shame the TIG im using does have a foot controller.

don't mind the raw look actually, as long as all the welds are really neat it'd look sweet

so your saying those welds arent good enough ?

would you want a filter on it? or another dash fitting for plumb back?

the welds on the 1 in the first post are FKING AWESOME . I'd take that in my engine bay any day...

second 1 doesn't look as neat, but I'm not bagging it, its a million times better than anything I could do!

yeah fair enough - first posts one was without filler

going to make a couple more and get them welded up without filler

the one above i'll get the fittings and filler welded on - this one would be fine for powdercoat as that neatens up the welds heaps.

you're doing good stuff man.

I might be interested in 1 of the split washer bottle/catch cans actually...probably just in the raw metal finish...any chance of PM'ing me with a rough price?

let me finish this one off and then i'll let you know

would be different if using another dash fitting for legal plumb back versus getting a filter for it
