... The paint as it dries blisters up... More sanding and stripping to do now, Murphys law strikes again.
I dunno, I think the orange peel look is kinda unique:D

Cleaned up the cracks and welded them up, the bottom is easy to get at so I did multiple passes but the top really hard to get at so I tried to weld the cracks, single pass nice and hot.
Viewed from the top

There are 5 bolts that hold the trany to the frame, I checked all my other MF10,12s, none of them show any sign's of cracks. Why this one cracked???

The wire wheel is a little aggressive on the aluminum as I found out on the first one I did so this time I was much more gentle and the stripper worked good at removing most of the paint. Right now it's all painted and it looks great.
The first one I did never painted it, left it natural and polished, lots of work there.
