Well Mr Yip
Nearly got the front end done! every thing cleaned, treated and primed before welding comenced..
Front end has come out real nice with just a skim of lead spot weld the bottom edge and sides and she's done, nice and straight. Moving onto side panel next so by end of week 2 should be looking a bit more like a van than a shed!!

Those 'bits of wire' lippy are pins that weld on and i can pull the panel about with while welding to keep it straight!

Coming together nicely now, you sure on the dove blue mr yip? original colours pretty cool too!! :D

Well time to crack on with it.. ta ta
