Replacment 2 door ascona build


Recommended Posts

So I started the white 2 door ascona build then sods law another popped very local up that wasin better shape so I've decided to do this one instead. I got it home last week but have not had the time to do anything with it. So today I made a start. I've got it stripped out, axles removed, up onto the spitt, under seal scraped from the section I'm starting on and hit it with the twis knot wire wheel of terror on the grinder. I've used these a lot but I must admit they still scare the crap out of me 😂  began chopping out the rot and that's it for the day. Theres a previous bad repair to the inner wing  but other than that theres no other old repairs to remove, which makes my life a bit easier.

Ive used both and find the spot weld drill bit far easier to use

Thanks for feedback mate. I suspected that they may be better. Not that the Draper hole saw type is particularly bad, but to keep them neat I end up having to use a 1/8 Drill to make a 2-3mm pilot hole for the guide to center. And as it does not remove the fused metal, unless punch through the metal it requires some dressing with the grinder. So I think the drills must be more efficient 😎
