Was going to have my friends do a lot of the build for me but decided it was my job. Grabbed a 170amp mig welder from harbor freight, watched some videos, started flux core welding everything in site. Not pretty as pro welds but rock solid. I encourage anyone thinking of starting to have at it. I'm having a blast.
With a 4.5" cutting tool and a welder I went at it. started cutting n welding away. Went much slower than expected. Just removing all the rust, cutting n prepping took all day. Once I got going it went pretty smooth.
I have most if not all the hardware needed. I'll be laying it all out this week. Hope to get the kegs ss welded next week as well. I'm not takin that on. I played welding the tops of the kegs I cut off. Very easy to burn through without using gas.
Paint is just n undercoat to stop it from rusting. Not sure what color it will end up. But the wife likes the purple.
