I tack it around then build off each tack. Keeps it cooler and less voids. In the end it looks like that pic but less voids, but not perfect. Just good enough for a shop.
I had to take it off by the taillight cause there was an old flange sandwiched in between and patches that could only be fixed with the quarter off. Fixing those is where the boss is gonna think, "why isn't that quarter welded on." The boss' lapdog seems to think that's an 8 hour job-YEAH RIGHT! It takes about 5-6 hours just to cut it all out.
