IIRC the Aston Martin Rapide S has no electrical welds on it anywhere.
That's pretty cool! You learn something new every day.

Alright figured it out, but it takes a while for me to go through a loop of stuff to make each picture work

This is part of the front suspension

My concern here is the amount of porosity and it doesn't look like it penetrated

Gimme a moment I'll do the rest

Not sure in photo number one, that one looks a bit sketchy, but in number two the weld looks good to me, it just looks like the slag didn't get chipped off.

Take a chisel to em - see how much is slag.

Alright.

Terrible factory welds-test-nis5.jpg
Biggest concern here is the fact the very top (top of frame it left)) of the weld it definately was cold/didn't penetrate hardly any you can't really see how high up it is in the picture

Here this is probably me nitpicking but the cab mount isn't against the frame it's kinda just linked by the weld, you could easily put a 50 cent piece into the gap

That does look pretty ugly. I'll want to put mine on a lift this weekend to contrast and compare.

Yeah that's some ugly stuff. That one with all the porosity DEFINITELY should not have made it past QC.
