Lay the box flat on the ground so all of the flaps are visible. Notice the notches die cut into the sheet where the flaps once folded? Run a piece of 2" masking tape, starting from the outside edge of the box, all along the notch, plus about 2-3" beyond and into the field. Repeat for all the notches then walk or slide your foot along the tape to secure it well then turn the sheet over. We are going to tape these same notches again only a little bit different.
The next test involves cranking the car, and being safety aware (no hanging jewelry or long hair) and measuring voltage at the battery terminals. Read the voltage on the meter as someone else cranks the vehicle. The voltage should not drop below nine or ten volts. You may want to repeat this test to get an accurate reading. If the voltage is not within spec you should consider a new battery, or have your starter professionally tested.
One piece of advice is to make your service FREE. All you have to do is run down what you do, which is e-cycling and tell them that you will pick up all the items that they have for free. There are some large companies that provide this kind of service but they are charging for the service and making it free is far more attractive.
So what do you need to get started? If you wanted to be a traditional air-brush artist you would have to choose between a confusing array of expensive airbrushes. Luckily to try improvisational airbrush painting, you only need to purchase one simple, cheap "quick change airbrush" that you can get at Harbor Freight for $10. This brush is special because it allows you to change your colors really quickly and apply thick wet layers of paint.
Before starting this procedure, determine if your vehicle will lose radio codes, body computer information and other computer related parameters when the battery is disconnected. This is a good time to browse your owner's manual under battery replacement, search the internet, or contact your dealer. On some newer cars, this is not a matter of just losing your radio station presets but rather an issue that may require a tow to the dealer. To be safe purchase a device that plugs into your cigarette lighter and provides voltage while your battery is serviced. This unit is available at many auto parts suppliers. Be sure to close your vehicle doors while you use this device, you do not want to deplete its internal battery.
I am somewhat embarrassed to show my efforts so far but I will in a separate post as I hone my skills. But for now I will do a assessment of this technique. So let me start with the pros of arc welding. One is it is less expensive for equipment than MIG and TIG welding. Secondly, the heat is instantaneous and would be excellent for tack welding armatures and metal furniture that you can finish with oxyacetylene. Thirdly, because you are not warming up the work with a flame, the heat is highly focused and warpage is greatly reduced. Finally, this particular welder I have is very light weight and there are no gas gauges to watch over.
