Getting schooled on the pinch weld
1985 Toyota pickup extended cab lifted with 35's
So I had a couple questions on pinch welds for our toyotas starting with
How important are they?
If you clearence the front innner fender by hitting it with a hammer are you risking anything?
How much of the body staying together relies on that out side pinch weld that runs the inner front fender down the rockers
Also I basically cut all the pinch weld off the inner front and stich welded a bead to seal it up
I assume that will be more then fine
Do pinch welds like the inner fender one take much stress from the body flexing off road and such?
Thanks for all
Just trying to understand better
