Welding Precautions...?

Post by TasMan » 20 May 2023 09:52 am

Hi All, Been a while lol

I'm in discussion with a local custom exhaust company (new SS system 8) ) and it crossed my mind if they are doing any tack/completion welds with a new system on the car, are there any precautions needed to protect the ECU, Renix etc on my 360 ?

I assume disconnecting the battery as a minimum...

Am sure there will be plenty who have done welding on their cars, just wondering if you go further and disconnect the ECU, Renix etc ?
