Welding The Brackets On

If you are not an experienced welder, this is not the project on which to learn. You don’t want these brackets coming loose unexpectedly. And it’s easy to blow through the somewhat thin Unitbody sheetmetal if you’re careless with your weld puddle. Also, the factory uses a zinc-based rust preventer between the laminate sheetmetal, so be sure to weld in a well ventilated area and wear some sort of respirator to protect your lungs...if you like breathing and living and stuff like that.
