  4. It's all about you knowing what's underneath Pete and the fact that you done your best. As you say plenty of room for adjustment on the front doors & things can be filled and straightened with a welder and grinder, keep it up bud doing a sound jobs so far. πŸ‘πŸΌ
  5. All looking straight Pete even the body line πŸ‘Œ It's always nice when things goto plan. Job satisfaction!! πŸ‘πŸΌ
  6. As ever Pete good methodological work, at least you'll sleep easy knowing all the hidden bits are done to the best you could get. Ps welding is the easy bit, it's cleaning the blooming things down after that takes the time. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜
  7. Great work Pete, neat patch repair. As for Marks's holy moly could you even find a starting point.
  8. Tidy work fella looks good, a tip for rear boot floor (filling holes) a piece of copper flatbar saves you burning through just as much lets you fill the hole a bit better. πŸ‘πŸΌ
  9. He tried brazing his sills πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ http://youtu.be/7R1qi48VSkU
  10. Is the spot welder not strong enough to go through 3 thicknesses? IMHO I would go with plug welding over brazing. πŸ”Œ
  11. Dave you started it. Any other profession you'd be locked up for supplying πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  12. Ford diamond white c/w ruby interior πŸ˜ŽπŸ‘Œlads don't put him off he has his ruby steering wheel ready. 😏😷

  14. Gravitex do a TINTABLE version Pete could cut the cost of underside down.
  15. wonder what primer i should use straight onto the blasted metal surface? have you any ideas? A good epoxy primer on bare metal don't think you could get any better. πŸ‘πŸΌ
