pics from yesterday.

Pan all painted



And gearbox given a quick tidy up nothing special but it looks better



Cracked on today and had Dad out helping which was cool, fitted the gearbox, handbrake cables, driveshaft gaiters and brake lines



Got the beam back in aswell so she's back to a rolling chassis



then pushed it outside and gained a little helper



The rollin chassis







Gave the workshop a clean up and found a new home for some of the parts i had kicking around in there and pushed the body in ready for work to start tomorrow

Started the body today, thought i best start with the gutter repair as if they were to bad was pointless doing the rest of the body........well the actual seams of the gutters are screwed Mad, but the grot hasn't spread into the roof itself.

After a little thought and a bit of advice from my bro, I said bollocks to it and attacked it with the grinder..........and started to de-seam her Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

removed the repair panel from the N/S rear quarter that i wasn't happy with the fit or the sheer amount of filler



as this is a budget project I played around with the panel untill I was happy with the fit and welded it back in



half way through welding the panel in the Mig packed up pale pale
Stripped it all down the find that the circuit that controlls the wire speed had burnt out Evil or Very Mad and that the manufactures stopped making the migs 10yrs ago affraid

So went out and got this beauty Twisted Evil



Finished off the quarter panel not perfect but better than it was



and started the work on the inner arch ready for a near nut line to go in
