That was not my guys work.

And yes that patch was there before.

No need to cut that out to re-weld another patch. ><.


And yes, splash guards had been welded on from before.

Soooooo.....

The front wnd of the Z is almost done.

It has been slow work....

Not been to see it yet due to other commitments taking over my life and moving away to London for work, but I might have some pictures this week.

We have pics of a front wing to look at (nearly?).

Great work Don, looking forward to viewing! Will it be ready for the 50th anniversary?

(of anything that happened in the 80s)

Wow I've just had a flick read through this entire thread, what a story! The sense of determination is admirable, not the most conventional or accepted approach but as long as you get there in the end then who am I to judge.

Quite a lot of banter to say the least, what's the current status of the bodywork? it looked in need of some serious fabrication work to bring it back to its best.

Glad to see another Z and MR2 owner on here as well, makes for a nice change

If not by Monday shall we just lock/delete the thread as it's not really a good thing for the club?

Care to explain why? It has 120k views over 1200 replies so it is a popular thread

I am not referring to content

If that was to happen would it not set a dangerous precedent as there has been far worse threads that have not been good for the club!
