whats the best/safest way to weld around fuel lines, with out disconnecting them. thanks Chris
Move them out of the way is the safest....but you can cover them with sheet metal or a welding "flame proof" blanket!!! Never weld around LEAKY lines!! /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
The safest way is to remove them. But, at work I get paid off commision SO, I don't always do this. What I'll do is get a welding blanket(A real welding blanket, not just any blanket) and wrap the lines a couple of times. Be really carefull around rubber lines cauze sparkes can find their way through the folds.
well heres the thing, i am welding in a bracket/x-member in the rear for my new shock locations. it is the lines in the side of the frame, and i am welding inside the frame on the bottom, kinda like the UAV is set up. should i just go ahead and remove the lines, how hard is this or would it be a bigger problem since i would then have kind of a leak.. thanks chris
also will aluminum foil be able to withstand welding spatter? if i do a couple layers?
