  1. Aren’t we all caught in the same trap?
    And guilty of the same thing? :)

    Roof done, started on the next bodge.
  5. that's just some rust with a few bits of camper attached!
  6. Nice work. I would remove that battery though with its exposed terminals.

  7. That's a job! So, the roof repairs - grind back the welds then filler over the top? Wondering how you'll get it back to a smooth finish for paint.

    Has a high to which will cover it up beautifully;)
  10. Mr davidoft is correct as I said at the beginning I wouldn’t have taken it on if it didn’t have a hightop to cover the lot !

  12. There was a complete rust free tintop roof on facebook last week and they only wanted £100 for it. Would have saved you a load of work as it was already drilled out at the spotwelds in the gutters.

    That’s the majority of the welding done, just a few bits on the near side.

  17. Hmm, a few bits, rear lower corner, sill, seat belt mounting, doorstep, side window bottom corner [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    The front edge of the dashtop is knackered and both screen recess corners need doing, then that’ll be it for welding ![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    And I’ve painted the hightop[​IMG]

  19. Here Flakey, you don't fancy bringing some stuff down to techenders and showing us mere mortals how to do this welding malarkey, it still seems like magic to me, nice work
