More spider plate welding

Dynamic Edge called - the "BK faux Tampier Throttle" parts were ready.  I wasted no time picking them up.

More welding on the spider plate today.  This is the first half of the left side opening.


 Then the second half was tack welded in place.

Followed by a finish weld in between the braces.  Then the braces were moved and I'm happy to report - the left side opening is finished.  Two down.  Four smaller openings to go.

Speaking of those smaller openings......same technique.  Left side lower...

 ...and the right side lower.

Yea, I know these pictures are rather uninspiring.  But the spider plate needs to be finished before I can proceed any further.  Be patient.  One can only weld so fast!
