So, sometimes you have to take a few steps back to get it as wished.. I had welded my pan halves almost 1,5 years ago and even if robust, the welding aspect wasnít that good.. i had left it, but I decided that I canít let a part of the build not making me proud so.. I redid it

Primer removed, welding cleaned, rewelded where necessary, ground down and back in primer




















And as itís good for regular checking, I mounted the front panel back with some grips and this time didnít forget to take some pictures:




And my favorite, my motivation-boosting picture:


Cheers

Antoine

I know what it's like to lose sleep wondering and second guessing your work. Wise decision to tackle it now if it bothers you... Congrats on MSOTM.
