  8. Despite what I said earlier, I did manage to find a spare hour this afternoon So 1) Cut out the Steel patches that I need to fill the hole in the floor: The 2), in preparation for the work to be done when I get back, I decided to see how difficult it would be to remove the front and rear screens... Starting with the front screen, I removed the 'chrome' corners and infill strips and then I was ready to manipulate the rubber from inside the car. To my surprise, the screen came out easily after less than 15 minutes of messing about. Ads expected the bottom corners were shot, but the rest was fine, with just a little surface rust to be treated. The corners will need some thinking about, but they dont scare me too much - how difficult can it be?! Have a good evening everyone.

    What a superb event with some fantastic cars!
  17. This morning task was to make up some templates for the floor repair sections I will need. Four patch panels in total will be required. I could probably reduce this number by increasing the size of a couple of them (by joining them together), but then you can lose a bit of control when you come to weld them in place as they become more difficult to adjust/manipulate. This is the hole to fill... And the cardboard templates prepared: I'm off on holiday for just under 2 weeks, so that's it from me for a while my friends.

  23. So today has been all about the OSF jacking point. I did have second thoughts, but in the end I decided to follow my plan. Up in the rafters of the garage I had about a Metre of Steel tube/pipe of the size I wanted to use. It had 3 mm wall thickness, so nice and strong for the job. After cutting two pieces to the desired length, I notched the end as the outside edge of the jacking point rises slightly. This meaning that the pipe wouldn't sit right without doing this. Next I welded the pipe into the two valleys of the existing jacking point: After that I cut away the rusty Steel from the centre hump and welded in some patches: With the top taken care of it was time to start cutting away the rust from the sides and bottom - here you can see the Steel pipe and the rust to remove around it: After forming up a couple of patch panels, they were welded in and the flange required to attached the floor bent: Is it pretty? - not really, in fact not at all Was it worth the effort? - debatable... but very satisfying Is it strong? - as a rock. Have a nice evening everyone.
