I'm getting ready to fix my flatbed car hauler. Several years ago a drunk lady in a mini van hit the back of my parked trailer and ramped herself up and got stuck on it. Damage wasn't all that bad but the left side is about 3 inches lower than the right. The trailer pulls straight and works fine. The trailer's main 3x5x1/4" angle iron frame is bent (warped really) in several places. I'm thinking about welding a 2x4x1/4" rec. tube into the angle iron frame. The radius of the inside of the angle is the same as the radius of the tube. Should fit great. I have a 225 amp AC buzz box, and in the past have burned a lot of 6013 with it. What kind of rod would work best. Should I weld an inch and skip 5 inches. I don't want to overweld.
Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
Thanks, Chuck in Phoenix
