I love the boldness of that boot lid "repair". 

Does it end up within a filler-skim of the shape you want or is there a stage of hammer and dolly work to get it straight again after the welding?  I can remember you saying how you use a backing plate to soak heat up and do a stitch at a time to build it up to avoid concentrations but the extent of the work I can't think it doesn't move a bit.

David, i do use the heat sync on that type of epait and work all the way around the panel rather than concentating heat in 1 place, put too much metal on as it will need trimming to shape later on, beat it to shape on the anvil and shrink n stetch edges to take out buckles and distortion around the edges,l'm repairing the inner skin at the moment so will put more pics up as i go on, j

easy if you cut the rot off and split the skins, repair both skins seperatly and spot weld back together, i'm going to fit the hinges to the inner skin 1st and make sure it fits the apperture before welding the 2 skins back together, will put more pics up as i go along, they may be of use to you

Just having another look at the boot lid you are "repairing" - lovely job as always !

However, do you keep a note of how long everything takes ? It would be interesting to get an idea how much time is spent on a panel like that. Is it the most complicated part of the Aprilia you have done so far ?

Keep at it !

Like the colour, looks a bit similar to the one featured in the 'Autocar' rebuild a few years ago - FLE Huh? - Memory a bit dodgy !

What are the driveshafts ? Are these the modern VW (?) conversions ?

Look forward to seeing more about your own Aprilia ....

Hi to all,
I was just plucking up courage to dip my toe into the Aprilia pool and demonstrate my ignorance when James put on pictures of KSU 138.
It was a goer and passed the MOT so I thought to tidy it up. James has done more than a full respray - it has new floors in boot and foot wells, new bootlid, door bottoms and skins, lots of wing work and so on.
Those who know my Flavia will think it the same blue but as James said it is greener in real life so no matching cars in the Hands fleet.

I was going to ask a simple question. What should the interior look like? I do not know if it was an Alperton or later private import - KSU is obviously an age-related no.
I like the blue seats with wavy lines I have seen on a post on this website. Mine are fluted blue leather (rear) and flat brown leather (front).
Ideas please!

Brian
