 Re: SR20DET Project in Progress
Brings tears to the eyes that kind of commitment.. I have seen plenty of nicer shells get trashed. On the subject of spot welding you can do a fairly good spot weld with a Mig welder with a bit of practice. IN fact there are tip shields designed for the job and the flasher welders have a spot timer build in to set the arc length time. Drilling a hole thru one panel thickness helps wih the smaller low amp machines.

With one of these, you could really do a number on all accessable seams like the racers do, & stiffen up any possible sucpect part of the body.
It's good to see someone doing the whole thing right,... right fron the start.
I liked the 'action shot' with various coloured sparks flying too, & i just LOVED the callendar.

Edit. I just realised, i can see the front sheet metal & the chassis rails, but where is the rest of the body, or are you building one car from two or more bodies?

You're right! I'm building one out of two.
The rest of the body is in my photo album.
Search for "SR20DET Project in Progress" and you'll find all pictures.

About the portable spot welder... it's a professional tool.
It's sold thru companies supplying body & paint shops.
It's a fantastic tool. You have different "arms" in different lengths and widths. You can nearly access every body panel.

 Re: SR20DET Project in Progress
Speaking of spot welders... I've seen some for sale that run on 115V or 230V single phase (normal house voltage for the U.S.) has anybody tried these, because they're inexpensive which makes me wonder if it would be worth buying one. Here's some examples of what I've been looking at:

115V

230V

Hobart 115V

Hobart 230V
