Weld porosity matters. It does not buff out and is not an acceptable practice. Road Armor
workmanship is guaranteed for LIFE. Competitor welds may have the following characteristics:
Brittle, breaking welds, inconsistency, rust issues, lots of grinding, bad for powdercoating
and just plain UGLY!
We use 0.25 (1/4)’’ and 0.1875 (3/16)’’ steel sheet metal. Our 1/4’’ sheets are almost 2.5x
thicker than some of our competitor’s 12 guages sheets. Even our 3/16’’ sheets are almost
2.5x thicker than our competitor’s 10 guage sheets!
We utilize formed 3/16” plate for our light tabs which are keyed into the bumper and then
welded. We also spend a significant amount of time grinding all the welds smooth and
eliminating grind marks on the bumper face.
