Sleeving bows with cromo
I've read all the threads (boywonder!) and have my top mostly taken apart. I seem to remember from someone with an engineer background that welding the sleeve to the bow at the ends would increase strength. While I have it all apart I was ready to do that. Is there anything special about welding cromo to mild steel? Any other last tips before I straighten the bows, drive in the sleeves, and upgrade all the hardware?
