Welder

I'm going to get the area prepped this weekend since I'm too broke to ride for a couple weeks. How much of the powder coating do I need to remove around the crack to get a good weld, and does anyone have tips on cleaning the metal, just alcohol after its stripped or is there something better?

Thanks

Thumb DVDaze 2013

Perry, Justin and Jack,

I had blast during DVDaze. Wish I could of made the ride in on Friday. At least I got to ride on Sat and Sun.

The weather and the riding conditions couldn't of been any better. The dune ride is still stuck in my head. Dang I can't wait to go back!

Perry and Justin, Thanks for all the great photos and videos. As usual I was having too much fun to stop and take pics.

Jack, thanks for your cooking and good company. You need to ride with us more often. FYI, the tuna was awesome. I had it the nite after I got home. Thanks

Nice Video Monti. Angle was a little weird but I was amazed how much I remember of the terrain. You really are a sleeper. I watched it at work and knew where you were goin. I might have even been leaning in my char.

I still can't figure out how to get the YouTube to embed right so you're gonna have to click the link. It looks best in 1080p if you're able to watch it that way

http://youtu.be/NCMEPxnLYc0

I had a kickassed time Monti, the weather was perfect! I like the new camera angle, gonna have to try out a chest mount for mine.

We need to get out there again soon, I have a 2 new spark plugs and a wrench that fits now so we should be in buisness this time out! Haha.
