    Thanks for the replies.

    It's a '73 and not mine, a customers. Super clean, rebuilt from the ground up.


    The customer supplied the hinge, latch, and plasma cut mounting plate. The latch is stainless, the rest is mild steel.

    The hinge is a 1750lb custom unit from ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TIRE-...mZ230153237215

    What gloriously clean welding! How come my first tig's look like heinous abominations? I know, I know, registration for tig class is @ the end of the month!
