Re: Questions for the welding pros

As recommended switch to the .023 wire size. It will help minimize the heat induced warpage.
I suggest taking a straight edge and laying it on your completed welds as you go to see if you have any distortion. This may help you visualize how heat effects the metal as you work.
Personally I would hold off doing any filler work until the box was assembled, mounted and checked to be as straight and true as possible. Using string to pull tight lines can help check the panel alignment.
You're doing great work. I wish my first panel replacement had gone as well.
Thanks to Bob and Jeanie and everyone else at Superior Performance for all their great help.
