Welding up a few holes and a small amount of rust before sealing

Masking all the sheetmetal so we can spray the jambs without adding work of sand overspray off

Now that the jambs are sealed and wont rust, we move on to the sheetmetal, and seamsealing the gutters.

With other projects we have painted for money, 510 only. Paint jobs have run from $4000-$7500 depending on how intense. But the fumes are making me crazy in the head, so we might just b retiring from painting cars for awhile.
Those that know me might say i have always been crazy, yeah i know

This is a cool tool, allows you to back your holes, for welding shut, and helps with heat.
