Everything is welded shut. The pin holes are mostly gone. You see in the pic how that large hole covers the horizontal and vertical part......the verticle part is the roof rail and has nothing to weld to. Only the flat part gets welded where the spot welds were. Since it was very structured here it didn't warp. But these fill welds are brittle. How can I keep them from work ahrdening.
