Absolutely amazing welding/distressing. The sort of work that makes me want to close my photobucket account!

are you just using a rotary tool for that welding effect?

Yes, but in 2 phases.  I use a metal deburring cylinder on edge to distress the edges, then I use a 1/16th inch collet to chuck 1/16th plastic rod to create the weld.  I haven't made a video yet, but searching "Rotary plastic welding" will get you the method.

...holy shit. Friction welding with plastic rod. It's actually a weld, not just an effect that looks like a weld line.

 

I have *got* to try this...

Yeah that friction welding is pretty legit. Gives it a great effect too. Really an awesome build. Loving watching this come together.

I saw the friction welding technique quite some time ago, never got a chance to try it or, and to be honest forgot it existed. Looks great. 

I quite like how you set up the hatch, having it raised more than 2mm or so is a very good look.
