Hello all,
I thought I would share some of my scratchings on a long term project I have been working on and honing my restoration skills.It is mostly flat steel so no difficult metal shaping here! A Cigweld 135 Turbo mig and some sykes hammers and dollies plus general workshop hammers gets things done. Loads of inspiration here to get a professional finish so I ma grateful for those sharing their projects
cheers
Bill

I'm sorry that I'm putting in my 3 cents.

There are no welds here.

Those welds are done on the inside of the join at each end. The seam on the inside stops short at approximately 50mm permitting the weld to performed. This was the way the factory American Central Manufacturing (the subcontractor) did it originally and on every body produced by Ford and ACM during WWII. I still have some metal finishing off to do but that is how it was.

Regards
Bill
