A quick update on progress from last week. The chassis is now fully stripped and I am just finishing up any items that need fettling before it goes for powder coating. At some point in its life someone has took the oxy acetylene to the chassis (probably fitted a bigger radiator) so I fabricated a pair of patches and full penetration welded them in with the tig (this means I don't have to weld the underside)
I have put some close ups of the weld set up and also the root weld and the fill and cap weld.
while I am waiting for the frame to come back from the powder coating guy (a bit of a queue for his services) I will be blasting all the small bits with a cabinet I bought from flea bay.
