Before tack-welding these gussets in place, we fully welded the joints beneath them while we had easy access with our MIG nozzle. Try to plan ahead and make life easy on yourself. If you don’t plan on pulling the cage for final welding, you may also want to paint the stanchions and floor plates and even portions of the tubes that aren’t accessible once it’s in the vehicle. Don’t forget to mask off any parts that will need to be welded on.
