With the steel pieces formed, fitted, and clamped together, I tack welded a few spots inside to hold the whole structure together.
|Ran out of MIG wire and had to oxyacetylene a few tacks.|
While the Bondo was curing I drilled holes along all the adjacent outer seams.
And started threading copper wire through the holes.
Once the Bondo had set I sanded it roughly and sponged black paint over the whole interior.
Then I glued in the silicone 'meat' I had made to the inside.
And it was ready to display, hanging from water pipes by copper and aluminum braided wire.
|Needs more meat.|
