First person here gets it. I won't be caring.
Is your chassis Galv then? Zinc contamination of S/S welding will end in tears...
Nah, I rebuilt the front end using galvanised sheet and fibreglass panels.
When I said to Andy Hightower about welding the galvanised angle, I kinda took it as read that he would know the zinc would need to be ground off, especially after the protracted thread the other week about it.
I did once make a set of brake backplates for a tripple axle trailer using stainless welding and they were fine except the galvanising didn't take on the stainless.
Like I said, try it. Giv itt arr bennd wiv de burminam skroodreyevur.
