    So, VW Beetles can come in useful.
    Who'd have thought it?

    Today I decided to sort out this lot, its two panels spot welded together seemingly to create a brilliant rust trap! The rust was confined to the flat panels & outrigger:



    Removed the lot & fabricated a new outrigger.



    Then cut a new (lower) panel out of a sheet of 18 gauge & fitted it. The only problem was how to form the recess where the body mount goes through.



    I knew I'd seen the shape somewhere before then it dawned on me:



    There will be no more home made jam tarts at our house. The shape was identical to the original and as the baking tray was a good quality one the metal was thick, the cheap versions are too thin.

    I`ve heard of warped tarts before, but that sort never crossed my my mind

    It'll be the world's worst winch if it is.
