Welcome to the best R forum! Lots of great guys here that will help you out.

Looks like the pics arenít showing up.. hmm Iíll notify a mod to look into it. Iíve seen these pics recently so Iím not sure what the problem is. Possibly a problem with the host.

Welcome to org.  We lost a lot of pics from photobucket and when the site upgraded.

No heat treatment required

Here are a few pics

Welcome to the site.  Hopefully Tony can re-link those pics quickly - looks like they've been moved on the hosting site so might need to be re-uploaded in general.

I have welded a few frames and gusset kits. It is important to use the correct wire size a voltage on your mig welder. What size welding machine will you be using? I use a miller 250 with.030 solid wire. I believe I was at around 17 volts(cant remember wire speed). I also used my TIG machine to fix some cracks and replace motor mounts. TIG looks better, but is slower and not worth it lol. I do not pre-heat or control the cool down. Good luck,  Loren
I had a BDT motor once.....It SUCKED!

i would recommend installing all of the gussets, so a complete kit. you dont want to go strip your frame down later to gusset something you could have done the first time.
