Over the last few weeks, we’ve been switching our internal business software to a Mac based system which has provisions for a web store that actually looks good and is integrated into the software. Sorry, that was a huge circular sentence. Our old business system was outdated, and the web store option looked terrible, frankly. That’s why we went with a secondary web store that was essentially a WordPress plugin. It served us well, but the problem with it was not being integrated into our business software, so each order had to be entered manually.
To make a long story short, we’re getting a new web store!
I have many of our products uploaded, but I will be adding our complete line in the next few weeks. If you don’t see something you’re looking for, our old web store is still functioning as before, and everything will still be available there. I won’t take it down permanently because people all over the Internet have linked to various products on that store, and I don’t want people to get a “page not found” error because of a broken link. If you have an account on our old store, you will have to create a new one on our new store. You can securely use PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover.
Images will continue to be added periodically, and will include customer pictures as well.
Here is the link you’ve been waiting for: shop.welderseries.com. Please add it to your favorites.
I would really appreciate your feedback. It’s far from being finished and polished.
Dear Welder Series…
Do you have any frame repair kits for the rear wheel area for a 39 Ford stock chassis for restoration.
Mainly need the area at the axel hump behind the rear wheel
Bill, we have boxing plates for the rear half of the 1935 – 40 Ford frame. These might help to reinforce the stock rails, if they are still part of the frame. http://www.welderseries.com/blog/online-store/boxing-plates-3540/ shows the whole kit (front and rear halves), but the rear plates are available separately. Part #354002, $47.00 each.
Do you think this would fix the problem?
John was in to the shop the other day and asked if we had a bracket for his 8-3/4 Dodge rear end to mount the Panhard bar. We don’t have one specifically for it, and after going over some pictures he had, we brainstormed and came up with something like this:
He used two Versatabs to mount the bar and formed a plate to box them in and to hold the bolts.
Thanks for sending the pics, John!
Dear Welder Series…
Hi there, My name is Rob and I live in Holland (Europe) I saw your Rear Four Link Kit, Triangulated and I am very interested. You see I have an NG chassis which had the dimensions of an MGB, and I was wondering if I could use this kit (maybe with some extra accessories) to fit my car, so I can get rid of the leaf, feather springs. Could you advise me please? Best Regards Rob
Rob, the triangulated kit should work well. Because I feel that your frame is narrow, you might want to mount the upper bars on the axle just inside the frame rails and angle them forward and towards the centerline of the frame. This will give more support angle than mounting them close to the rear axle center section and angling forward and out to the inside of the frame. Check the installation drawings on our web store to see if there are “ambushes” waiting for you.
Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts for your project.
If you’re familiar with the loveable shape of our 18200 and 18201 frame tabs (they’re so cute), you won’t see much different about this little guy… until you see its edge. This tab is 3/8″ thick, pickled and oiled, and ready for your early Ford tie rod end taper. You could also use it as a single shear urethane bushing mount if you were so inclined.
The 1/2″ hole is 1″ off the frame edge.
And why not… HALFER! From Feb 19 through March 7, these tabs will be on sale for half price: $2.25/ea.

Our friend Grant Kay is organizing a local garage crawl on March 29… a few local shops will be open to let folks see what they’re working on over the winter. Breakfast at Kypreos at 8:30.
For more information, let me know if you’re interested and I’ll pass on Grant’s email address. Otherwise, check out his post on ontariorodders.com: http://ontariorodders.activeboard.com/t56664926/garage-crawl-and-breakfast/
Lloyd brought the GMC dually he’s been working on by the shop today on a shakedown run. Hope the HEMI’s putting off some heat… it was about 20 below zero (Celcius) today.
Dear Welder Series…
I’m building a 1956 F100. Supercharged 5.4 with 4r100 trans. I have purchased your engine mounts, but I’m looking for a tranny mount that will work with the 4r100
Andy, have a look at our 2115 trans mount and crossmember (http://www.welderseries.com/blog/online-store/transmission-mount-kit-2115/) and the 205041 Ford adapter plate (http://www.welderseries.com/blog/online-store/transmission-mount-adapter-plate/) which use the insulator/rubber mount (http://www.welderseries.com/blog/online-store/transmission-insulator-2268/). 205041 has recently been modified (new #205042) so it will work with transmissions that have rubber mount hole centers from 5-5/16″ to 5-9/16″. All of this has to be filtered by you knowing that I am not at all familiar with this transmission, except by looking online.
Thanks for looking to Welder Series on this problem.
This was sent in for our monthly photo draw, but I had to share it.
Attached pics show before and after your sway bar materials were installed on my 1959 Daimler SP250
There were only 2650 SP250s made between 59 and 64.
My SP is #74.
This British Daimler is fibreglass with a Daimler 2.5l Hemi of their own design. It came with all wheel disc brakes.
About half of the production was sold in North America.
The pics show a sway bar I had previously installed (it came without a sway bar) and then pics of the Welder Series bar installed through an existing chassis tube member.
Note the big improvement in road clearance.
Instead of buying the whole sway bar kit and shelving the items he wouldn’t use (end links, outer tube, mounting tabs, etc.), he purchased only the bar, arms, and couplers.
We’re taking some time off, and I think you should too. Emails will still come through and we’ll reply, if you have a burning sensation in the fabrication section of your brain.
