Today's job was to repair the inner wing and under the scuttle, again this side i had to replicate the 3 separate skins, this is what I cut out

20170518_180930_zpswhz6lqfs.jpg

After I welded that up i proceeded to cut the wing rail off, unfortunately whilst i was doing it i got a bugger of a spark shoot through my goggles and lodge itself in my right eye so a trip to a&e was required to remove it, when I got back i popped back out and welded the replacement rail on and added the inner wing to strut strengthener as per the other side

I'll grind the welds back another day, the only part i ground back was behind where the strengtheners is mounted so it sits nice.

I love the fact that you got back from A&E and got stuck back into the welding again!

Today I cut out the front of the sill on the drivers side and an area of rot i saw just in front pretty much exact to the other side i did, so proceeded to knock up a repair section and then cut up the sill repair section and let them both in

I then spent 4 hours getting the drivers pattern wing fitting something like, it was well out, the part that follows the line of the scuttle was pressed against the body and was nowhere near inline and the gap was well out, a mixture of heat and hammers and a couple of slits its about there now just a little more finessing when i get chance and weld up the slits
