Oilpan, if you were to have any incident, whether tipping the bottle and breaking off the valve, or a fire, you'd be in prison for life and sued for millions. It ain't worth the risk. And as for booze, this town is like 80% Mormons, so no, no home brewing.

With crap welds you risk the same life in prison and being sued for millions if you man slaughter some one with a vehicle. Last time I checked about 30,000 people a year are killed in vehicle crashes and any where from 5 to 30 are killed per year by all gas cylinder accidents in some way.
For a decent weld, I would risk it.
CO2 cylinders have burst discs so they cant explode in a fire.
There is no way to knock the valve stem off 2lb bottle unless you throw it out at least a 3 story window.

You obviously can't read. I already explained how I'm sick of the BS about ugly welds being weak welds. I've had mine tested, not one ever failed. When you butt-weld 2 pieces together, and clamp them in the tester, and it tries to pull your weld apart, it's a pass if the failure is not the weld not even the heat-affected zone. Further, if you grind a weld, ugly or not, and can never find the original seam where the 2 original pieces met before welding, then you know it was good. Stick welding is inherently ugly, just as TIG is inherently pretty. Can't be escaped.
Furthermore, weld failure is no risk on street radials, the tires will let loose before anything else. So stfu and stay the hell out of my thread since you have nothing helpful to contribute, or I'll be showing the moderators what you're posting. You need to grow the hell up and be a real man.
You're just jealous you can neither build like me, nor keep your progress flowing as I do. You being such a childish jerk is why I stopped trying to help you with your threads here and on thirdgen.org. Obviously you have no reciprocal courtesy.
Everyone else who wants to see this car's completion please tell oilpan what time it is.

Be my guest show the mods what I have posted.
You are right I can not build like you. Nor would I ever want to.

Interior is mostly done, car is daily-driveable, and the owner wants to sell it, rather than any "dialing it in".
Any offers?
Willing to do any V8, any trans, any axle, for the right bid. Will deliver for the right bid.
