we always wonder how those welds would hold up in a wreck and I can safely say that they do not hold up at all. Where I live we have the largest Ukrainian population in the country and on Recycle road or Salvage Row, they have plenty of car parts and chunks of cars. Combine the two and you have a bunch of unsafe cars on the road. We get em once in a while. Soon as we spot it we tear it apart quickly to see what it would take to take all that crap out but without going too far cause they are insurance jobs. The insurance companies and customer pay usually don't want to pay. That's when we give them the contact info to BAR. If it's an Ukrainian guy he won't turn in his cousin. Seen it lots a couple years ago.
btw, when you tear those down you see rust attacking the welds, welds being ripped right out, and holes enlarged in panels to make up for a cockeyed car. Brutal what people do.

All kidding aside, hopefully the owner and his spouse go 400+ a piece for some front end ballast.

Come on now is right! Check out this pathetic welding on this utility boxed truck. This huge working truck, check this out!
First off you can see the bumper, then the two welds that were holding it on. NO THIS IS NOT A JOKE! That half inch weld (quarter teaspoon of corn bread more like it) was on one side and the other inch and half weld looking like oatmeal was on the other side! There were three 1/4" bolts holding it to the rear body, that was it, license plate bolts basically and the two pathetic welds! This is a VERY heavy step bumper. Understand that there were NO BOLTS going through those brackets. ALL that was holding the bumper to the truck were the three 1/4" bolts and those two pathetic welds!
Then the bed, look at the size of this bed, the weld you see on the piece of square tubing is one of the four that is holding that bed on!
They BARELY penetrated and there is only ONE at each corner of the bed, it's not welded on the other side of that tubing, just the one.
