QRG sill section SS1

A body shop would likely sort that damage out no problem. Few hours of spot welding tabs and pulling would see it back to where it should be. Fair amount of work to replace a sill or just outer section and you need to be confident of the welding. Cut off far more badly done sills than I care to men...

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Hi Brian

Just admiring your sander and hose :w

I need to do a bit of body work on the gold racer and need to buy an electric sander is your sander just orbital or is it random orbital?

Any recommendations?

Cheers

Blyton Park 7/8 September 2019

If Phil hadn’t had a tube of 5 minute cure epoxy would of been over as the rad was bust! Soon had it fixed though. Wheel on grass at the riggler meant impact with the ba...
