Hello all, I don't know why I haven't got round to making this thread earlier, especially since I've had so much friendly help and advice from various members, but better late than never! Anyway, here's my Citroen 2cv AKS400 van I picked up... probably about a year ago now. It's worth pointing out I'm only just 17, and have never had any experience of cars prior to this, and am learning from a mix of Haynes manuals, trial and error, and amazingly helpful members of various forums. Anyway, when we got it home, I proceeded to pull/cut various chunks out of it, after a fairly shaky start. It wasn't really too bad underneath, but I decided since I had got this far I might as well do it properly, and in any case I don't like welding underneath cars - painful sparks! So this happened; Followed by prolonged use of an angle grinder; I cut rather a lot more out over the summer, before realising the difficult part was putting new metal back in. I've got my own welder, but this is the first time I've really been using it for prolonged periods. I think I'm getting the hang of it, just a matter of practice now. It does only go down to 35 amps or something though, so welding 0.6mm 2cv metal is a challenge to say the least! Then I made up a large chunk of cross-member that was rotten, using cardboard templates and everything. Quite excited to find it fitted almost perfectly! The next bit didn't go so well, replacing very small chunks of floor, using my very own, patent pending technique... They didn't fit too badly, but the surrounding metal was still a bit rusty, and I can't do thin metal well yet. Got fed up with that part then and moved onto more interesting bits, I'll revisit it later, and maybe weld in a large section of that corrugated stuff over all the holes. Or maybe just replace the entire floor ... That'll have to do for part one, my computer is complaining about uploading all these pictures. Once my posts have caught up with current progress, don't expect regular or logical updates, I can only work on it during holidays / long weekends etc. and in any case I don't do 'logical' or 'regular' very well. Thanks! George P.S. You may have gathered I find pictures preferable to writing lots, is this OK? Does it slow everything down? Is uploading to this site the best way of doing it? Is there any way of rotating images etc. ?
