    1. 07-01-2010 01:16 PM #101
      oh my gawd ! this is the best thread in Fabrication !!!

      i think the guy was trying to weld 1/16" steel with a 1/4" rod , or he dropped this kit in an erupting volcano or something.

      lol,

      the customer could have probably built a better manifold with 2 tubes of JBWeld, a hacksaw and some fence posts from home depot. !!!

      To me it looks like the dude did some hilbilly tig welding on the first one.

      Step one: Insert electrode into stinger

      Step two: Take additional electrode and break all of the flux off

      Step three: Crank up the welder

      Step four: Strike arc and subsiquently start dipping the second rod into arc as you do so with tig and make a molten blob of crap.

      Step five: Let cool over night then install in your car........

      atleast this one was 2 separate pieces.. a hideous manifold, and an ebay turbo! atleast this guy used $3 worth of flanges and bolts to build this one, rather than just weld the manifold STR8 to the turbo!

      looks like someone used the long-arc, or SPRAY ARC method to weld it tho..

      simply installing the muffler box correctly would not have been retarded
