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

Project No Money - Page 3 DSC_0037

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

Project No Money - Page 3 DSC_0038

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

Project No Money - Page 3 DSC_0042

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

Project No Money - Page 3 DSC_0045

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