the cage looks good, but that bumper.............definitly needs some work. If it wore mine i would take some body filler (bondo) and clean up the welds. Its like cheeting. But looks good.Thats my $.02

i think your right, i'm going to try to put it in the vice upside down to get some more silver soder to flow and fill the joints better, if not bondo


this is my first tube work ever so i'm proud
