Test fitting the Ali horseshoe, Booster Cover, ankle brackets for extended Booster Cover and my Ali ankles...fits pretty good!!

after having some trouble with my welding machine, i was unable to weld correct seems on my ali parts.
thank god there is this fantastic invention, the internet!

i saw some tutorials concerning the right adjustment and use of materials for ali welding.
and i found a little mistake; the adjustment of gas was too low, so there wasn´t enough argon gas around the welding area. the gauge wasn´t ok!! it showed the wrong amount of gas going through!!

after readjusting it, everything went fine! here is a pic of the first leg sheet welded to the side sheets:
(only minor rewelding is necessary!!)
