If I paid a proffesional to weld a cage for me and he ground the welds off, I would demand that he replace the cage and have a respectable welder do the welding. It has always been my contention that if you are grinding your welds off, your trying to cover something. I have a good friend that has built a couple of sandrails. His original rail was completely ground and bondoed. He was not shy in saying that his welds sucked and that he wanted them to look better. I have been in his rail at times and looked at the welds on the home built spindles. This was a scary moment. I must say that as he builds more stuff he just gets better. I think that if you have welds that you feel compelled to build up to massive proportions so that you can grind it into a pretty little gusset. Grind it away and try again.

GPW...even worse.

On the weld grinding conversation, i agree, if i make a weld that i am not happy with I just grind it out and reweld it. It will bother you everytime you look at if if you don't, and you have to say, "well i just messed up there" or some other crap that makes ya look liek a fool instead of a real fabricator. Patience is a virtue

Sure is. When I was stationed there some friends and I started a 4x4 club and we had a truck show there.
