Default Hi from Northern Ireland

Hi all, I work as a Civil Engineer but have recently got back into car restoration and welding after about 20 years without a workshop.


I restored a few cars when I was younger (just to have something to drive)
and the first car I restored was a Fiat 124 coupe.
I loved that car and have always driven Italian when I had the choice (not always possible now I have a company car) so it's no surprise I am currently restoring a Lancia Delta and an Alfa 75.
Both needed a fair bit of metal work and as my skills have improved I have started making some more complex (for me) panels.
I have most of the tools I need and am now looking at making an English Wheel so will be looking for advice on what to make and how to use it.



Hope to get plenty of advice from you guys and will post when I think I've something useful to add.
Callan
