FINALLY GOT A BIT OF WORK DONE!!!!!

So then update, as i said yesterday ive managed to start prepping the bay for welding....as ive now decided its going uber smooth!!!!

so here you are pics for you all before she goes to my mates for welding and for me to have a go...
Image

Image

Image

Image

left side nearly done

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

that was at the end of the first 3 hour session

2nd day,

Image

Image

Image

bit more rot on this side but it will all be sorted soon

not bad for a car that was used by me for 11 years to move 2 houses, shows and general tarmac terorism

Image

Image

Image

Image

thats as far as ive got so far and im awaiting some new brushes so i can get in the nooks and crannies before welding

next job is removal of scuttle tray but again waiting for a drill bit removal tool to be delivered.

oh also i started removing the strut top sealant....what a bastard!!!

Image

more updates soon as im determined to get the bay done and sprayed by edition38 this year to a show standard :up:
