It was probably planted by Gertcha Thornybum or her ancestors as an act of rebellion......

Fantastic work! I'm afraid with the amount of rust I would of scrapped it, as haven't the welding skills or location where I could try. Looking forward to the end result.

The small green carpet didn't just appear there, there's definitely been a cosy habitat built there!

A big chunk more today.

Outrigger fully welded on.



Floor repaired.



And all the way back.



Inner sill complete.






Next job will be the sill at the jacking point, welding the outer sill on, then fixing the rear arch.



And that will be the welding done!

Well folks, the welding has finally come to a close.







Inner sill tidied up and painted.



Trimming outer to fit.























































Some filler is required, but I'll do the cosmetics after I've had quite a few of these.



Slainte!

I think I speak for all of us on this forum - well done! We are nothing but impressed, you have done a super job and you deserve a few nice drinks before you begin the redecorating.

What Alan said ^^^^^

Saw this last night but was so shocked that yould actually got to the end of the welding equivalent of painting the Forth Bridge i was lost for words!

Definitely well done, hope that bottle is the first of several by way of celebration!

Thank you! It is a good feeling. Lots still to do though!

And the welding isn't over because this just arrived..



And this..



I think the blue one may be beyond a bit of MIG wire..
