Sheet Metal Tech: How To Spot Weld In Bead Rolled Floor Pans With Your TIG Welder

Hereis the latest video from Karl Fisher at Make It Kustom and, as usual, this kid impresses us. Not only does he make rad bead rolled floor pans for this Model A Project, but he shares the methods he uses to build them, to install them, etc in his videos. In this video in particular Karl is going to share his method for “spot” welding in the pans using his TIG machine. The results are clean, strong, and easy to clean for that ultra slick look some folks are going for. This is metal finishing in all the right ways and we dig it.

So watch the video, learn something, and above all be inspired to do something in your own garage this week. Get your projects going, spend time learning how to do stuff better or how to do stuff period. You might be able to do more than you think, and imagine the satisfaction you’ll feel!

Here is the video description from Karl:

On this episode of Make It Kustom, I am working on the 1931 Model A roadster floor. I’m also fabricating a seat frame so that I know where to weld in my threaded inserts in the floor braces before spot welding the bead-rolled floor panels down. I also talk about my process for spot welding with a TIG welder.
