No worries. No work is happening right now.Very true...due to the grain and the knots if nothing else....still 300lbs snapping a 4x4 sounds like it was compromised in some way, rotted, cracked, etc. I would build a metal rotisserie for sure if I had some way to store the thing for years between uses(any excuse to pull out the welder for me). The length of time the body will be on the rotisserie and the elements its exposed to also play a big factor. You make a good point though in that wood is really inconsistent in strength and failures are far more dangerous, metal requires fatigue before snapping(not like the weight of a car is enough to cause most tubing to fail anyway), anyway, my apologies for sidetracking the build thread.
No worries. I haven't touched the gas in a while. I'll check it tomorrow. I have been having issues lately even with clean metal.Looking good man, this car is going to be killer. Purely just my opinion and not stated as a matter of fact or to tell you what/how to do what you are doing-cause you are light years ahead of me in car restoration/ body repair, but in my personal experience, if you are getting splatter from contaminated metal, try turning your shielding gas up a little to help with the impurity’s
