Default Seam welding

Wondering if anyone knows of a website that has a good guide on "how-to"

Or if they have any hints how the pro's do it.

My wagon is down to its shell, and I have a nice mig welder laying around. So all it will cost me is time and a little wire& gas.

From watching my buddy do it all I remember is your supposed to do a 'stitch' pattern. Seam weld for an inch, then leave an inch, then seam weld for another inch, wash, rinse, repeat.

I think I am going to wait on this for a while, as other more mission critical things are comming up, like putting in the EJ20T, but I'll let you know If I try it and it works well.

Eh, alot of people are alot farther along than me.

My real claim to fame is being the 1st person to find out that the 2.7L H6 fits in the 85-89 3dr/sedan/wagons.

I should be getting the crate with the motor somethime this weekend or monday.

Here is a pic of the car waiting for the motor.
