Make sure you have all the diagonals tacked in and that there are no big gaps.... ........then weld the beast up but be careful how you go and do a weld here and a weld there don't whack too much heat into one area at once or it will distort.
And have fun

Not wanting to teach anyone to suck eggs but...if for any reason you find yourself with a tube a tad short or the gap a bit iffy cut another piece of tube don't go trying to fill gaps too much as you will put way too much heat into and end up with a big 'nana.
