Ya elbow grease indeed but man you got imagination to Laughing
Can't wait to read your write up... now i'm thinking since i have to redo the rockers i might as well see if the guy can incorporate arches into the job while he's at it:P

been a few days since my last post in here, been having fun.

got two of my arches chopped and welded into a final shape, one of my 80x80mmx3mm boxsection sills on and the arches welded in. was a lot of work,but its starting to look like its worth the effort.



not the best pic, but it shows how the arches return into the body



rear of front arch



front of rear arch



rear of rear arch

i bent the back arch to run flat along the rear of the truck, it patched the rear floor nicely Rolling Eyes

had a go at making up one of the checkplate panels today for something different. actually, its probably spelt, impatience Laughing

got really lost in it and finished it, without pics.
heres one with a wee coat of paint on it



starting to see it take shape a wee bit, im glad, was getting a bit soul destroying Laughing
