What is a safe distance to stand off when welding a fuel tank?Gemaskerde Tuinvurk wrote:My experience with knocks...
If metalling knock... Most probably the bash plates. I've gone through 2 sets of aftermarket plates - heavier and lighter ones. They are still stiffer than the suspension and you end up with bolts stripping and causing flex. I could usually diagnose this easily if you drive up a curb / rock - anything that makes the suspension flex a lot.
The other knock was a soft thud under the feet - turns out at a stage I dented my fuel tank, and while it seemed very superficial, the plates inside the tank which reduce fuel swish (or whatever) broke and I had to have the tank repaired by a proper welder.
Since then I only get thuds when the take is above 3/4 full - and stopping suddenly.
