That would explain why the welder I have used for aluminum work mentioned that he uses his friends powder coating oven. I never put the two together although I have never had a failure of his welds. Which is why I go to him.

That looks more like a bad application of JB Weld, or looks something like I welded. Was that new from Aluminess?

Nope. Itís a repair from previous owner. There is a 5 gallon meth injection tank in the box and a 5 gallon diesel Jerry can as well. Iíll be receiving the new swing arm in a week and getting the updated spare tire carrier as well. Didnít mean to hijack this thread also.....

Sorry I just gotta laugh. I really doubt that Aluminess would allow that even on their worst day.

Yeah, that can't be a weld that would leave aluminess.

Clearly meth and welding don't go together.
