arch welding and clearancing

Post by Brunty » Tue May 21, 2013 6:25 pm

Running behind my schedule due to being too knackered for a couple of days last week :( Still, making some progress!

Started by trying to fix up the mess that former "wheel arch roller" keeper did. For some reason the rear n/s arch had been attacked with an angle grinder and mallet...

One of those rare times that it actually looked worse in the metal :(

Still, welded up and clearance checked....

And in primer

Need to remove the original seat brackets and cross beam if the race seats are going in...

They are a SWINE to remove :evil:
