Don't be soft mate, I would expect a cup of tea and maybe a chocolate Hob Nob though!!
Let me know, I could always swing across on a Friday afternoon from work as I finish at lunchtimes on Fridays.

Started working on the worst part of the body today...

Cut out all of the nasty bits and removed the heater channel bottom plate from the o/s to check inside for corrosion...

Rons Resto - Page 3 RonsResto001-1

I needed to remove the last 2" of the channel so fabbed up a new heater channel end...

Rons Resto - Page 3 RonsResto002-1

And then welded it back in...

Rons Resto - Page 3 RonsResto003-1

Thats all for today.
