Not too shabby if I say so myself
I'll be quite happy if I can keep this up for my DIY built parts.

Any tips on how to improve from here would be appreciated... I gather it's just practice.

TIG is a Unimig Razor200 Digital, #7 ceramic cup, 2.4mm "rare earth" purple-tip tungstens, 2.4mm filler.
Running at about 90 amps (no pedal).

A pedal would be a good addition, but a work around is to set your down slope to a large amount and pulse the trigger on and off when you want to reduce heat input during the weld, I often do it when onsite or welding away from the bench.
