If you get a chance to play with it David, how about starting a thread with the results. Maybe others will chime in with what they have tried.

My wife walked by on her way to the bathroom and asked: "What is that, a dead body? "
No, just a car hood with a tarp over the engine intake.

I got sidelined by an old friend who came by (I was very happy to see him, don't get me wrong) so I didn't get much done. But I took the bottom piece of the door shell and started cleaning it up and found that before I can do anything I will need to repair a little rust on the bottom.

John, when it comes to rust I will think of you every time for the rest of my life when I find rust and start to complain. You will come to mind and I will say to my self as I did last night when I found this rust "You have a lot of nerve Brian for beaching about this". No kidding, it really happened.

still waiting for the van uniside to arrive. Both that came were rejected(used/spot weld city). There's more to the hit though. Customer complained about the back door sagging after the accident. What happened was the side was creamed so hard that the tops of the van opening opened up, but it was mainly the left side. The left side rear door holds the striker to the right door that overlaps it. IT PULLED THE STRIKER DOWN when the left door was forced up. Simply adjusting the striker fixed that but now that I still have some time before the uniside comes in I loosened up some body bolts and left the doors open in hopes it relaxes and gives us a little back. Believe it or not this fix does work when it opens up on top by a small margin. I think this issue fits that criteria and will see if it worked on Monday. Also got The Porsche out of here. Will have some pics soon. Been busy with life.

As far as the plasma...if you turn the amperage up, it will cut thru 2 pieces of 16 gauge easily. I cut 1/4" with mine at a steady movement. It may tend to "meld" the 2 pieces but I wouldn't consider it a weld. They just stick together. Lightly touching the seam with your little angle sander will surely break the bond and let them separate without any bending. Be sure to have the air pressure near max ( mine is 60psi) and that will help blow the molten material away from the seam and also cool it quicker to avoid warping.

I've cut copper and aluminum with mine too. It is a great cutting tool..

I wear dark sunglasses while using it to avoid eye strain. I know a lot of people don't wear eye protection but I don't like having that blank spot in the center of my vision for a minute afterward.
