    The one I'm starting has some pretty bad concrete some old some new some with more fall than other. For the most part I'm gonna have to build it in place. Would you suggest dipping the weld plate in primer before bolting down?

    Primer is designed to provide "tooth" for the paint to adhere to. I would at least prime and paint base plates. If not, they will rust staining the concrete. Not very pretty. I have even thought about rubber spacers the same size as base plates.
