I couldn't go inside, because I was carrying at the time, but I did get to inspect the outside of the arch. It's pretty amazing. There were some beautiful welds, and there were some shitty welds too. Anybody know the details of welding process and type/size of welding rods used in the pics? How cool would it be to work on something like this?

Good looking edge weld

Good looking horizontal weld

Shitty looking stop/start.

I don't want to ruin your thread, but it is NOT filled with warm nacho cheese

It may, however, be the corner of a buried coathanger.

Shame, They could have made those welds almost disappear on stainless if they wanted to.
