Howdy, all! I'm looking for tips, pointers, and general "stay out of trouble" ideas for welding an attachment to the frame of my 2007 Chevy1-ton van.
My parents are aging, and having more and more difficulty getting around. I want to weld on a pair of pipes (sch. 40 or 80) about a foot long coming out from the side of the box-frame, and put a platform between them as a step up for my parents.
My welding skills aren't an issue- it's that I have no practical knowledge of vehicle electronics or how to protect them from the welding current.
I can keep my ground clamp within inches of the welding I want to do- is that enough?
