I never ask people to clean or prep stuff for welding as they never get it clean enough,and if I ask them to vee the crack out it always arrives with a canyon where a hairline crack was - which could have been welded up with no filler rod at all...
Planning a small road trip next year from Perth out to Kal in my brothers 1925 14hp Bean roadster - maybe a as a shakedown run for a future Nullabor trip ?
Perth to Kalgoorlie in a thing like that. That's will be quite a trip.
