What's funny is before I got into ICAR training and collision work at shops I never used a backing in my life, or a flange, I didn't even know what one was! And in fact after getting into collision work I found that using a backing could be pretty useful like on a roof pillar of a chopped top. But before the late eighties I had never even thought of it, it was butt welds for everything.

Sorry, no photos.
