Yes, I put weld through primer on the pieces I was struggling with
I actually put a couple of nice coats on there

I obviously didn't put any primer on the scrap pieces I was playing around with earlier and they were coming out really nice

As mentioned earlier, I did struggle with a few practice pieces, but I think that might have been due to the box section I was using had underseal and paint inside it in some areas

When I was going over these areas the weld would just hiss and not sizzle
It sounded and looked like the video I posted earlier where the guy sets the feed speed too low. I wouldn't get any penetration in these areas it just blew the paint and underseal off of the reverse face

I didn't think to take any pictures of my practice pieces
I'll get some posted when I get back to the garage, probably towards the end of the week
