if you do it as tacking every 10 inches or something and let it cool it should be sweet. you would have to take out your seat and probably carpet, tho with any welder you should do that to avoid "flame" damage to your car

Braising is something you do to steak.

Brazing is the one where you heat metal not that hot, then add a filler rod to the NON molten metal - like high temp soldering.

Molten pool and filler is gas welding (oxy-fuel)

I'd mig it.

yea thats what i ment, id think it would leave a cleaner seam than with the wire. less clean up if you didnt have much skill. Tho saying that id use the wire with gas anyday, cos its "fun" 8)

aren't arches classed as structural? if so you're not allowed to braze them only seam weld them.

Think on outer arches it depends on the tester's POV - I'd say the outer was cosmetic & the inner was structural within the set distance from suspension / seatbelt mounts, but I'll bet there's tester around who'd think different.

Yeah thats Berg cup :wink:

I dont want to go that extreme, it is a road car after all, but thats the general Idea crossed with some of the milder Japanese Bosozuko touches :wink:

Proper berg cup type motor though..... 1400 16v supercharged screamer :twisted:
