I don’t think Marty has done any in years.

It’s probably a Fusion Fabrications manifold.

Looks good and nice to see some progress

A bit hard to see in the pics but the gap between the panels looks pretty tight.
I’m by no means an expert on the subject so maybe somebody like Ben-o can comment on this but I always leave a little bit bigger gap when doing a but weld.

I'm Sure My welder will inform me of this when he makes a start
