This car is a great education, especially for James, welding lessons:


We have decided that because this is going to be a race car & may end up in a fence paying out big bucks to buy new floors was not the best idea. So we are cutting out all the rot & welding in fresh metal, the good news is that after quite a bit of hard work the underneath is not as bad as we first thought Very Happy




The huge dent in the rear wing has now gone


We had to cut out some serious amounts of the floor


Only quality metal was used

He is getting better Steve, the last patches he did looked quite good, the car has had a serious amount of welding done to it. If it was any other car we would have scrapped it Very Happy

Progress has been a little slow at the moment on the build had lots of work on latley but managed to get a few hours in today most of the prep for paint is done on the car another hour of welding and that will all be done started bolting some panels on as one of the painters requests. All the bolts have been replaced with new ones.Bought two brand new front wings put a set of doors on we allready had as others were rusty but its coming along nicely and should be in for paint end of this week. Pics will be up tomorrow

The car was rotten Steve, if it was any other car we would have scrapped it, we are looking at making loads of different bits. Jimbo will post on here when we have final product / prices.

Got the car back today so let the rebuild begin every part is going to be fully cleaned and repainted before refitting so this may take sometime but will be worth it hopefully some pics to come before the end of the weekend Very Happy

Jesse,

This is real rally/dart car.
We found this car in Japanese auction and it is ex-Monster car.
So Jerry is restoring it to former glory.
Then Jimbo is going to race it.... you lucky sod Suspect !

Cheers
