Think I need to move the shock forward about 4" as its a bit soft the way it sits and there is more room for travel once it has weight on it

I like what your doing,  looks like something I would build, want to help where I can, on the rear spring set it up more vertical then try it out once all the weight is on the car, those rear axles are limited on there travel, work within there travel and you will be ok,  when do you plan to have it going?  any events or outings your trying to make?

Save your money and sell your current Lincoln for a better one....or Miller, Hobart.......anyhting but harbor freight.

 

Harbor freight welder will break within a year of even moderate use........Cheap hoses will get punctured......wire feed jams....stops working.....and they are not repairable.......too much cheap china parts not interchangable with "industry standard" .......You will regret it.

prep prep prep. That welder will do fine if the welder behind it will take more time to learn how to manipulate the puddle. More heat , less speed until you get the hang of it. Just because it doesna have gas doesna mean it sucks. I Welded a codswallop ton of stuff with flux core before I got a bottle. I have a Lincoln promig 140 . Flux core is actually hotter wire than solid wire. Taking your time can really help.

If you really want to buy something from Harbor Freight , then I suggest a welding helmet that you don't have to fight. holding the lens type is really unhelpful. you need to be able to support your hand and get proper positioning , and movement.

cheers
