Thats a cool tip..

This would be my top tip for any edge welding like this whether using a copper block or not, start at the edge and weld in, if you work out towards the edge, the heat builds up and the edges can easily be burnt away.

I've just done a rotten sill on my car. The glassfibre body doesn't make the welding too easy!!





The car is now back on the road :-)

It's been off the road for 5 months. Was hoping to pop over to Deeside when you were karting but missed that by a few days. Still got a few things to do but will get over to a meet one day. :-)

My welding is terrible, I just get impatient after 1/4 hour.
Is there a sill skin over your welding, or is that fibre glass? Must've been tricky!

It is fibre glass. Was a very tricky job. Had to cut away the body panel to get to do the required welding around the seatbelt mounting point. Rebuild the whole of the underneath of the car whilst we were at it, rebonded the bodywork and then a full respray. Quite a job! Also refurbed the alloys, repaired some small accident damage, sorted out the sagging doors (common prob on Alpines) and replaced arial.


Front wheel arch is prone to corrosion.

From inside. Pretty rotten!

This was the next car up after mine with a similar problem underneath!
