Took the Queen Bee over to my buddy Ben's place and welded on the hardtail this past week. Everything worked out well, we cooled the welds the whole time and it turned out great. You can see that one of the gaps on the bottom was wider than the other side but a little build up of the weld solved the problem. The frontend is a 6" over but I have a 2" over on the way so the nose will go down a little but keep a little bit of a kick up. Thanks Ben for the use of your machine, some beers and good company. More to come sooner than later I hope.
