It won't get painted.

If Tom paid attention, he'd know I would never even consider that.

wire feed

I agree with Redwing52. That looks more like wire feed than TIG. TIG would be a lot prettier. Unless it was me doing it!!

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

Try a Diesel mechanic shop most Semi trailers are aluminum and Im sure someone could weld it for you. Just a thought. I've welded all types of metal using mig tig and a stick, just cheaper at the truck repair place I bet. Good luck.

Just an update. It took a bit of fiddling but I got it back together.

Odd, but the mirror on that side keeps loosening up. I've tightened it three or five times but it loosens back up again. Not that being confused is new to me, but I'm confused about this.

Dennis, the mirrors on my previous bike, an 85 LTD, would keep getting loose for some reason. I tightened them several times but they just kept getting loose. I finally put some blue locktite on the threads and then I had no more problems with them.
