OK, so we have some welders on the forum - I guess now is the time to ask!
I have a project...
She's a 1967, sat in a barn since 1984. It was given to my daughter by the owner when the barn fell down and he didn't want it sitting on his lot anymore (it had been the previous property's owner, abandoned in the estate).
The floor pan is, of course, mostly non-esxistant. Several body parts will have to be replaced. The engine is frozen.
Now, I'm perfectly happy elbows deep in an engine or transaxle, but I've never done any welding, and there's going to be quite a bit on this. I figured I'd learn on the floor pan since that's not seen, and then move to the body panels that need it (like the door pillars - the door hinges are pulling through them...)
Any suggestions on a rig? Oxy-acetyline vs. arc? Size, type, anything? What are the advantages/drawbacks of either?
Oh, and I now know what to wear...
