Here is my friend Tim's kicker cover. It had a big old crack in it, and a chunk missing. So we bead blasted it, and set it up on the mill to remove a bunch of material. This step makes sure that there is plenty of room for the weld.
HEre it is all welded up and bored out.
Here is a pic of the od being cut.
It is almost finished here, it just needs to be ground on a bit.
