    It’s quite possible the whole feeling crummy thing is just in my head..... along with all the other weird shit going on in there.

    It's called metal fume fever. It is a real thing. Caused from over exposure to Zinc Oxide from burning the galvanized coating. Hot dipped galvanized metal is worse because the coating is much thicker to begin with.

    Just started to learn how to weld. My father in-law is a welder so I spend half a day in his shop as he showed me the ropes. Too much fun! Just need to get a welder and start practicing at home. My neighbor has one and I actually got to use it to fix some stuff on my daughters Jeep. Too cool!

    I'm guessing most of you use gas, but I've used flux core for years just due to the convenience of it. Obviously it's the ugliest of all methods. But a few months ago I found out there is an anti splatter spray that Lincoln makes. This stuff works really well. Although there still is some splatter and it's definitely not as clean as a gas weld, just a wire wheel takes any of the remaining splatter off. This stuff has saved me a lot of clean up time. It gets sprayed on your pieces before you weld.

    I’ve been using that stuff for years... well ever since I got my first welder (flux core) ... it works great. The little splatter balls fall right off your work area.

    I’ve used cooking spray in place of that stuff in the past.

    Wish I'd have know about that. Just finished up my gussets not the prettiest but they'll hold.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
