well it turns out i can drag my feet and whine and moan just like efverybody else.....i needed to tackle the radiator valance panel which was badly pin holed but have been talking my self out of yesterday i spent 90 minutes filling pin holes which was a total waste of time, welding wire, welding gas....but it brought me here

admittedly i am a tool junkie but not necessarily a tool welders are all lincoln or hobart but this little baby was the least expensive plasma cutter you find on ebay...i think it was $170 with a 2 yr warranty

15 minutes later...

the guide for the straight cut, if you look to the right ontop of the saw horse you can see an 8x8 1/4" steel plate wrapped in copper sheeting that i clamped to the bottom in some spots to fill the pin holes

my 90 mins of pissing in the wind

and 15 minutes of light work

oh well the path is clear now.....
