Yea, its alright for some, playing with bits of metal. I've done 15 hours with a wedding full of rugby players from bridgewater, who threw pate at the walls, a bowl of branston pickle at the door, and the bride wandered around with her nipples showing. Rolling Eyes

Car looks good thou love, and the driveway is nice and roomy now!!! Twisted Evil

Drivin this thing round as it is, is so much fun! Everyone turns and looks at it! Very Happy If I didn't pick up the cherry candy today, I'd leave it as a rat! It's just so much fun!!!!! afro

Did a bit more filling in holes today. There's alot more work in it than I thought! I just hope it don't rain before I can get round to glass! Laughing

Here you go:
(Not really an update,this was in morrisons car park sunday morning)




Tonight I've been working on the front pillars. Got em fully welded and cleaned up. Ready to take a template for the screen!




Also cleaned up the welds on the roof and threw on some etch primer!




I think Rach wants me to cut and fit the screen tomorrow! She got a taxi to work and forgot to take her hat, scarf gloves etc. She got a little cold when I picked her up! Laughing
