    Took advantage of the sun being out for a bit and painted the trailer. Got both sides done. Ran out of paint and sun so wasnt able to do the roof yet. The dents definitely show more with the black paint but it's a camp trailer. It will be fine lol. Rear and sides ~90% complete. Got decent coverage with the 3 cans I had. Figure about 6 more cans needed. 1 more per side and rear. And then 3 for roof

    I've been using my buddy's flux core welder so my options are pretty much limited to one choice.

    6013 is a good all purpose electrode. Real stable, decent looking welds for stick as well. Good one to start with.

    Going to be taking a class in the fall. I just want to start doing something before then. Time to get some scrap metal to mess around with.

    I've just about mastered the art of chaining up on a hill of ice over here on N. Tuolumne. Power out most the week. Stay safe this weekend!

    I got 14-16 inches this past storm. I'm on a big hill and it was fine without chains until 2 days after when it all froze up. Snow seems light so far but who knows if it dumps over the next 48 hours.

    That’s crazy! Hills and ice make for great YT videos, but not in real life. Stay safe

    7018 is a great filler rod. If doing pipe 6010, but it's a hot stick and will blow thru material. 6013 will make you look good for testing the waters.thats the first stick they had us use in class.

    Ok... So I just realized I have a 3 day weekend next weekend.... Aaaand since @foxrcing07 is such a badass and helped me press my bearings today... Aaaand since the last part I need for the swap (the twin sticks) will be here tomorrow...

    It is looking like the moons may be aligning for some 4x4 converting shit to happen.

    But I can not do this one by myself... I will definately need help. Who's in?
