Sorry, I thought it was an option.
I've managed to remove the duplicates, but it seems I need a bit more practice as a mod to get all the pics the same size
Thankyou for that. It seems to be a sytem glitch. The only thing i could edit was the bit i wanted to keep.

Thanks Paul. Fortunately im better at fab and paint than i.t.
I prefer to mark out as square as possible to make things easier to make the new plates and just off any spot welds. then I can grind through each spot weld to reveal the subsequent plates.
I use an old wood chisel to help separate the layers . If you try and weld through a double dry seam you will pick up the intercontinental rust and have a poor weld.
Always work from the middle going out when tacking else you'll get a hump in the middle.
Then I just puddle, seam, linish and its ready for a skim of stopper, primer, seam sealer, top coat.
That looks like a good bit of work to have fitted around the turkey carving.
Thankyou. I like Christmas but im not too good at sitting down doing nothing useful. Just spent the day cleaning off all the wax oil and hand painted hammerite ready to prep and paint
so it will be all done nice and shiny for 1st of jan
hopefully in epoxy by then
Epoxy today. May go wet on wet in the morning with the top coat
Looking much better one colour
thanks for sharing your technique on that multi-layered welding.....very useful tidbits.....the car is looking great....it will be nice to have the engine bay one shade of black!
Thanks both. Got up early this morning and made it shiny. Now need to get all the ancillaries cleaned painted and re fitted. Good old zip wheel and epoxy should see it done. Just need to decide on the colours.
You do fast and very good work! Looking great!
Black and silver/grey/chrome.
Im very fortunate in that when I closed my business down, I took much of the equipment and made use of it in my workshop next to the house.
Started cleaning stripping and prepping ancillaries for epoxy and paint
Then santa came again.
ive not seen a steering rack that small in ages looking good
