also, the hood gaps on my car are off making think the front end isnt exactly true. should i take it to a body shop and make sure the car it strait first. or can it be straitened later on after the stitch welding and cage have been wleding in?
thanks ahead of time.
Have the car looked at before you start welding on it.
You will want to weld the seams 3/4" to 1" long with a few inches between them. There isn't an absolute number.
It is worth mentioning, as a certified welder I am sure you know to move around the car while welding in order to not build up heat and warp the chassis.
