it didn't look right so I went with the open butt weld.

I am with you Henry as far as the butt weld goes. There are a lot of places that a lap weld would work fine but I can't hardly bring myself to do one. That is one advantage to working on your own project. You can take the extra time to do it the way you want to do it without worrying about the customer's wallet.

It looks good.
