Hi ! 

 

I just found this page a few weeks ago and now i decided to share my project with you.

 

(and sorry for my english, its not the best)

 

I started this a few years back, by taking the car apart. but recently i started welding on it, and its really starting to go fast :)

Hi,

 

it has been along time since i have been updating something in here. ( but i have made ALOT since last update)

 

The reason since i not have been uploading is that, i can not get photo bucket and this forum work together.

 

So here is a link instead to my build tread on a danish gallery. - Hope you enjoy.

 

Kind Regards Nino.

That's first rate stuff. I just looked through all 22 pages of your restoration so far and you have some great fabrication skills.

You also should win a prize for the best bracing structure for when you did the door steps - how many metres of box section was in that? :)

Thanks i appreciate it ! :)

 

I can not remember precisely, but i think it was around 14 meters, 3mm square tubing. :) - it came out very solid ! :)
