    I went to race retro in February and there was a tr7 upside down on a spit with the underside looking awful cold welds, moving too fast and too many errors to say

    Perhaps they were real cowboys - horses don't need welding! :scared:

    Tut tut :vsad: Should never knock what goes on in an old barn on a farm. Most of the exhaust systems on F1 cars built around here are welded up in an old chicken shed just up the road :laughing:.

    Wouldn't do much for the power to weight ratio though.
