Hot times…Welding

This fuselage had two “Butt welds” which are NOT approved by 43.13 so Brent Henneman helped me get those sleeved.

We ground done the butt welds smooth, then used the 30 degree slice method to fix these properly.

I’m not real happy with having these sleeves here on the bottom as it will make the cover material look bad, so I may make some aluminum flashings to make the cover look better.
