Hello I am looking for someone to do some frame work on my 56 Windsor, rotted out right before the rear spring hanger. I am looking for someone in the Mass RI Ct NH area (located in mass) that someone can recommend that has done work for you before. I don't want some joker with a welder. I can make metal stick. I want this done right.
Thanks

So no one that uses this welding helmet?
Your only hope of getting it done "right" is to think about how you think it should be done properly and then insist on that. Otherwise you are leaving the thinking part of it to someone who likely hasn't graduated from high school, but knows how to weld well. Every experienced frame welder will tell you that if it's a critical section for strength, you'll want to back it up with another plate across the weld area, and plug weld that into place. That's because no matter how well you weld it, the weld area will always be weaker than a normal frame. You can put that plate on the inside so it isn't visible when done. It's really not a hard job, except for the upside down welding part. That part of it takes skill to do well. It would help if you are willing to elevate the car at an angle for that weld. Fortunately, the bottom part isn't as critical as the sides for strength.

You will also need to relieve the weight of the car from the frame before you start cutting & welding.
