here is the inside where all the welding was done. most of the pin holes are filled. When ground down they mushroom and flatten the welded metal. i dont trust this to not re-rust. it seems porous and imperfect. if i put any chemical in there it will be hard to get it out. I dont have a sand blaster. It looks to me to be strong and feels strong.I used setting c on the welder with wire speed 3.
It took some time to figure out how to weld this thin metal. i started with low heat but it didnt work. The other roof rail if fill welded wont be this messy and doesnt have as many holes. i created and had to fill more holes due to not knowing what i was doing. Once i figured it out they started to fill and not creat new holes. must have 10 hours in fill welding.
how can i make sure this doesnt re-rust
