    Looks good ! One thing I don't understand, and I dont mean to put youre freind down in any way, but why does he have you do things you dont want to do when its obvious that you are the one who knows what he is doing.

    well really i just dont want to argue with him because he is a know it all. in the whole i have told him how everything is going to go and thats it but on the smaller things i dont really mind since he likes to learn things the hard way. BTW after removing the transmission one time he decided it was time to change the crossmember

    started on the fuel cell today and ran into some problems on my test welds. Pic 405 shows the porosity and dullness. I dont know what it is but i tried both 2% thoriated, and ceriated tungstens (3/32) Aluminum is .090 3003 and 3/32 4043 filler i believe. Also what do you guys usually use to prep the al. prior to welding?

    Thanks for the help,
    Zach
