Many thanks for the kind comments; I've found my old skills are 'coming back' after several years (decades!) doing other work. But MIG welding is entirely new to me as I used to use oxy-acetylene; I've had to change because of the price and availability of acetylene in the UK makes it uneconomic for the small user.

Absolutely unbelievable !  Well done ! 


If I'd been the owner of that car with so much body damage I am certain I would have junked the car and moved on.  Your patience and skills are truly admirable.

Wow, thanks! Getting encouraging comments helps make it all worthwhile. I'm just finishing the second passenger (UK) side rear wheel arch. It was in some ways in worse shape than the driver's side: we drive on the left so all the crap from the gutter is sprayed over the left rear.. Here's the 'before' pic. I'll post the whole story of the left rear arch on my website when I have time
