  1. got to love a bit of weld spatter down the lugole [ouch] then did it again 20 min later no pics of work as yet purists arent goin to like the next bit
  2. This for sale topic may not yet available be for your usergroup
  3. this one is a clarke 160 a tip i got given was to put a cable tie around the handle at the front or the over hang of the steel at the front to stop the wire feed cable hanging down where it comes out the front of the machine
  4. no manta fun today had to make a new subframe for a seat i want to adapt to fit the bike ime building atm first time ive used this mig welder very pleased with it nice and smooth the last one suffered wire feed issues even after changing the wire feed assemby from a newer model so got this one instead
  5. the weird thing is that it will clean back to bright steel there are some heavily pitted areas wich i was going to cut out and patch repair but it seems to bleed rust...... i cleaned it back to bright steel painted it straight away in random aerosol paint to protect temporary i was goin to remove it and use a good quality anti rust paint but it started rusting within a day or two very strange a different area i did the same time no sign at all of rust coming through
  6. pheeew thats done been lying on my back all day shite dropping in my eyes but its all now off just the rear bumper bootlid tank and rear lights and its a bare shell
  7. well i have bruised knuckles forearms and plenty of cuts atm and its stil there so deffo give it a go mate cheers
  8. wil see if anywhere local i can get some and give it a bash i hate using a grinder while lying on my back under the thing [if i need to chop h heads off ]
  9. you know its going to be a long day when every single bolt is rusted solid to remove the rear axle/suspension so left that soaking over night but ime thinking its going to be a case of cutting the heads of the bolts and drifting the shanks out few pics of the front end grot now the front clip is removed
  10. finally managed to get the front subframe/ engine/ box out as one unit had to cut through one of the rear leg mounting bolts as was rusted solid the other flew out so grappled with it got the motor off the subbie dont have an engine hoist so fair weight on them motors on your own
  11. dont mind if its been butchered/altered from stock its for a track car project and saves me modifying my berlinetta wich altho in need of some work hasnt been messed with previously inbox me please
  12. at least its in the dry and locked up under cover i mate took his somewhere and it was sat in the yard in all weathers for a few months prior to work strting
  13. just a thought on ths but surely the guys at retro power who i have had help from in the past and found to be fantastic guys and made time to offer me free advice over the phone and on here...they wouldnt be able to supply a car to a customer knowing its going to be subjec to vosa/biva/iva/sva tests when presented for anMOT
  14. flocking i like especially on dash boards ect gives that rally type look
  15. i beleive the lean to i knocked up is 6.6 at the lowest i have a spit here its a universal one just make a mounting bar to suit what your mounting it to but it has had a mk2 escort on it and theres quite a bit of spread in the feet so can drop it quite a bit just by spreading the legs further out i didnt build it i bought of a mate for 50 quid i think but itnow needs de rusting painting
  16. so youd need a minimum of say 6.ft 6 or there abouts head height
  17. dont know whats happened there i cant see the reply ,,,,,, but would it be an idea to add the height on you garage roof/beams so people know the minimim height can get away with on the lowestheight pivot spit ..... hope that makes sense
  18. i have a nose cone here it has some scabs/surface rust and will need repaires to the bits above the headlights i was going to fit to my own then got a almost mint one instead i was going to blast this and repair the its required prior to fitting
  19. one of if not the cleanest repair work ive seen on here fair play
