When shaving the tailgate handle do you want to do a full bead or just spot weld? I looked on Sir Mikes website and couldnt find anything.... :insane:
:word: I finished mine up the other day, and that's what I had to do. You have to be very patient when welding. Do a few spot welds at a time and let it cool in between. This will minimize warping.TexK5 said:You do multiple spot welds but not all in a row, you need to do corners then do one on an opposite side until its a continuous spots touching each other all around. You can even keep a wet rag to cool it during the process. If you run a continuous bead it will warp like crazy.

Sheetmetal? They used a filler on mine. So they shaved your door cool tho?Hope my handles gone when I get it. Of course it was gone last time, then after sittin 2 days in the sun it came back :flame:way2hi said:I had the same exact problem. The sheet metal was too thick. They have a new type of fire extinguisher out now that's good for more than just putting fires out. It can cool off sheetmetal pretty fast without warping it any.
