Look hard at this photo. See if you can spot two blunders (neither of them are mine).

Almost full points...

The hillbillies that had the vehicle before me had welded an I beam to a chassis cross member that had a notice stuck to it that said "do not weld to nor drill holds in the flanges". That I beam had been welded to the cross member and to the underside of the rear bumper and had been supporting a huge rear shelf that weighed probably close to a ton. I spent Sunday cutting that I beam away with my 4.5" angle grinder. My reasoning - it was on a beam that it shouldn't have been welded to but also welded to a beam that in the event of a rear impact stood a chance of bending and changing the alignment of the rear wheels. Basically, it was a pretty stupid and dangerous thing for the hillbilly prior owners to have done.

The reversing horn cable had been loosely passed through holes in the chassis beam and the far end had wrapped around the prop shaft and been broken.

That cross member may have been heat treated. If so, the welding will have weakened it.

Naked Photographer hasn't done anything on the Camel since October 2017, so he probably won't see your post, let alone respond to it.
