I had taken off from the shop this past Saturday for the NSRA Nats in York PA, so I was trying to make up for lost time.

Thanks for all the comments guys!

A bit further along on the cowl repair.. Repair patch trimmed to size...



....and then scribed to the cowl area, which gets rough cut using the 4-1/2" cut off wheel. About 1/4" excess is left for final trimming using the snips..





That should flow some air...



Tacked in place..

Thanks for the comments guys.

OK, it's been a while since I've TIG welded, and got a little too much heat near the edge. Blew a nice hole, so used one of the practice pieces to cut out a patch..







.....and I got a little heavy footed on the other end as well...




Trimming for the patch's patch.











The final pieces to weld...



Weld dressed and factory relief added...



A few more welds to dress and this will be done...

Nope, the arc will always be affected by magnetic force. Just depends on the strength of the magnet.

Keep in mind, any time there is a flow of current, it generates a magnetic field. What's flowing are electrons and they are charged particles and will react to the magnetic field.

FWIW

Thanks for the comments guys. Those rare earth magnets were used for test fitment only. Used some long reach vise grips to clamp during tacking process.


Cowl repair all complete...





One more thin spot from the media blasting where we had removed the leaded seam...








Test fitting the patch for proper contour..





TIG welded in place...








Started off with some SPI epoxy on the underside...





....and then the firewall





.....as well as the new glove box door skin...





The entire interior was primed by standing through the window openings...








Then the outside was tackled...
