    Picked my nose and these boogers came out...

    I'll clean it up more so that it's totally flat when painted.
    This was my first ever welding aside from "tacking" pieces together. I actually know why it looks bad: I was using welding rod flux type as the filler... I'm going to get some steel rod the same size and use it as a filler and it will weld better than that crap that kept splattering.... but... it's a start and I'm now learning to weld and have a welder at my disposal! Something that had yet to be convienently available to me.

    ah - you said filler rod so I assumed tig. that's a pretty wide gap to fill regardless of what you're using, I thing you're going to be doing some serious grinding no matter what. are you going to use straight co2 or argon mix. I use straight co2 and haven't noticed a lot of spatter.

    you can probably just bondo that. It's just a cosmetic weld so it doesn't really have to be that strong.

    knock it out and seal it up... but that'll be a "finishing touch" thing down the road. Got ALOT of work to do that will take months.... no need to ask about updates cause it'll be SLOOOOOOOOOOW
