    just saying here have you really made yourself availble ?

    are you willing to travel to other people not the other way around

    welding is one thing welding a rusty car is another thats by experience by the way

    I don't think he's allowed to travel very far on reflection.
    Maybe a free thank you present? Sorry that's mean, no disrespect @Neil74. I
    Best wishes.

    What tooling do you have? Are you going to attempt to car bodywork using flux-core wire?

    thats the point isnt it not really anyone that can travel or be near others at this time

    the question would be is he wanting a welder to do the job for him though

    ive done that side of it myself not as easy as some may think as it takes some practice to be able to weld cars up certainly not as easy to weld on new plates on a steel bench

    dont really want to disrepect the person but i wouldnt do it for a few pints infact i wouldnt get the welder out unless its 30.00 ive been there

    though im the one that will break it just to teach someone else but im as much at risk if not worse off if i do

    I've got a couple of welders here and the panels etc and i dont want anyone to weld up the cars for me. i've already had one mobile welder here who has done some work and was paid what he asked but has just disappeared off the face of the earth and another who kept making excuses not to come at all. all i wanted was some advice on the best way to go about it all and possibly a bit of a kick up the ****.

    Thanks
    Neil.

    then my advice is try some welding what have you really got to lose

    post elsewhere in the forums and us members will aid you or point you in the right direction

    you have the welders so please do try its easy enough once you get the hang of it and in end you may get to like it

    please dont forget your pics they do upload onto here from your phone or pc

    really its how many of us on here tried and learnt to weld things up

    mig is easier to weld than arc welding ive done it arc welding on a car on thin panels isnt easy but it is possible
