#1 A welding warning!

Post by Rich70 » Sat May 23, 2020 10:55 am

I thought I would quickly share what I found whilst stripping the rear of the car today.

The PO had welded (poorly) a patch on the rear RH wing but the welding splatter has almost burnt through the fuel tank feed line to the pump! The blister was so thin I punctured it with a pin!

Always make sure the inside surface is clear and safe before welding on the other side!
