Today has been a bit of a pain in the ass, spent a couple of hours running around getting a new reel of wire for the welder, then I spent a couple of hour cutting and bending and welding a plate into the sill, and I made it from the rejected front wing of a vauxhaul Astra…..
Then I realised that I had a nice solid spare sill on the donor Car! The DOH! a bit of cutting later and I’ve got a much more shapely, and and thicker bit of metal to go on 🙂
The welding today has been a pain in the ass though, and not getting clean arcs, and beads not running right, so I’ve decided to ask for help from Crash on nutz, and he has super skills with welding, and he’s been doing it for decades 😀 he sid that he will pop over and have a look at it for me 😀
