Next, grab your West Cut 4-inch cutoff wheel, make a slice through bothlayers of sheetmetal, peel back the two strips of the new panel, andplace a tack weld right between two of the Clecos. Now, working onalternate sides of that first weld, place additional tack welds about1-inch apart, keeping the heat to a minimum. Use a small screwdriver tomake sure that both panels are lined up perfectly. John likes the WestCut wheel because of the thin cut it makes. It leaves a gap that's justright for tack welding the two panels together.
