theres a whole lot of nothing said ^^^^^
1) what r u using to weld with
2) can u weld sheet metal? cause tubs are usually NOT welded in (i've never welded a set always used rivets or rivetscrews)
3) what r u welding them to?

The tubs I received from Summit on the 68 Camaro I tubbed 4 years ago were aluminum, I riveted them in and used seam sealer/adhesive to glue them to the inner quarters.
