Good efforts mate! My rollover is still sat in the shed in bits. Could you do me a favour and messure the hight of the roof when its the right way up on the jig. Im not convinced mine will clear in the current garage ‍♂

6foot 4" bud

 

 

had a delivery this afternoon, the contents of said package will help with this weekends job..... stripping the whole underneath of the car and priming !

 

 

 

the note left on the box leads me to believe that some how, they know I require the extra warning haha

beautiful weather today in the Lake District.... and I spent it in the 'green house' I mean... tent. ( HOT would be an understatement )

 

but before I head out to the beer garden, here's an update 

 

 

rust before treatment (various wire wheels and flap discs oh and acid. don't forget the acid)

ended up with this after all the welds were ground down

small update unfortunately... stripping underneath to bare metal was harder Than I imagined 

 

 

 

before I started the paint removal I welded in some bolts ready for the fuel lines and brakes line
