some of me welding pics round windows n door bottom

Post by oldiguana »

eyup ducks,took a few pics when i was doin her bus and had a go at posting them....here goes
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... igrust.jpg

this was the nearside rear window after grinding all the crap out.....looks pretty bad
now this is the first fit of the panel i made up

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... rstfit.jpg
this one shows a close up of the panel.....the swage line was a little challenging to recreate with a boj job folder

http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... ckedin.jpg
now the panel has been tacked in...one tack at a time with a damp rag to cool and a piece of steel bar behind to try and keep it reasonably straight

nar then owdblades....a couple of pics showing me making and fitting a repair panel on the nearside front door
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... ustcut.jpg
the door was deffo paggered.....ive cut along a straight edge to remove all the bad stuff
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... stgone.jpg
cut and removed...dont look too bad like that really...looks better than it did 10 minutes earlier
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... estfit.jpg
panel now made once again on said dodgy folder,first test fit really but was virtually perfect cause i spent an hour measuring and marking it up before choppin...

panel tacked and ready for weldin...once again a damp rag to prevent warpin used after each weld
http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i176/ ... folder.jpg
a quick un of the folder...made from a couple a pieces of scrap angle and a piece of 6x3 channel....which certainly wonna up to the job!!
