All of this discussion of weld quality made me check the back side of my welds.

I'll be filling these spots in on the reverse side

Welded one side of the drive shaft cover to the floor today using dozens of tack welds. Pleased with the result - very little distortion.

The cover is too large for my son's brake, so I had to form the flange edge by hand. I clamped some square tubing along the edge to serve as a guide for the hand seamer I used to bend the edge.

Following the lead of others on this site and on YouTube, I used my argon-co2 mix bottle to roll a drive shaft cover for my new floor. I taped some square tubing to a sheet of cardboard to minimize indentations from the ratchet straps I used to pull the sheet metal around the bottle. I added some pieces of 2x4 under the straps to force the sheet metal to be tight against the bottle.
