    Tossed my instruction sheet for the weld in steering box frame brace on the other one I did. Anybody able to scan a copy and post/send it to me? I sort of remember the weld spots, but want to be sure. Thanks.

    the extra heat will warp the plate and make the holes not line up. It can also affect the heat treating on that section of the frame. You are supposed to stitch weld (weld an inch skip an inch)
