Craig Hopkins teaches you how to create a plug weld while installing a floorpan. You will need to make sure the top pan is dropped all the way down tight on the base metal of the car. It is essential when clamping that you make it both tight and right next to the weld. You will also learn tricks such as clamping the metal with a screw and welding up the center of the pan so it doesn’t flex. Use this helpful welding tips provided to enhance your classic car.
