Best Welding Contest Projects (Part 1)

Best Welding Projects Motorcycle

We asked you to send us photos of your best auto welding projects and boy, did you deliver. While we asked you to vote on the very best project to take home the grand prize, there were so many runner-ups, we had to give them their own spotlight. Here’s just a handful of our favorite entries.

Scratch Builder
