Aint that always the way Chugga......so how many projects are on the go?

Surely with  the apparent ease with which you can do the very difficult body repair work then, making good speed compared to lots of us!

more progress made this afternoon, finished the repairs to the o/s front door, decided not to just fill over the repairs as filler can crack especially with that door being the most used, traditional lead loading was my prefered choice, after i'd finished i made the door fit propperly by filing the new edge to fit the door appature correctly, still needs work but slowly getting there

...and a traditional body file in one of the photos as well...

I'm now starting to worry it will be finished TOO quickly Smiley

Indeed but, a good teacher, plenty of good practice and like most techniques if you have a manual type skill to carry out one difficult activity, then you'll pick that one up too.

lead loading, thats tricky to do Shocked
  its all about temperature control and taking your time, aslong as you tin the surface well the lead will stick, i use a hot airgun , far more controlled than a blow torch and do an area approx 3inches square at a time then keep moving in 1 direction, gradually the panel warms up and suddenly you are speading lead really quickly , vertical leading is alot harder than horizontal but if doing in small areas at a time its fairly straight forward, the best part about it is it doesn't crack or chip like filler can, the flux is corrosive which can be a pain but its also great if the metal your leading is thin or pitted, far more permnament than filler , filler is also like a sponge, if you have a pin hole thats not even visable , moisture will go through it and the filler soaks it up , it then expands into bubbles and A looks a mess B starts off more rot! lead doesnt suffer like this provided you clean the flux off propperly when finished (kettle of boiling water usually sorts it) i used to hate doing it  (i blame lack of patience) however with age patience has come and i actually enjoy lead work these days  Roll Eyes

With age comes a different view of time.  For most teens if it looks good for six months that's just fine, these days I expect "we" want 20 years from a repair.  Maybe when REALLY old it will go back to the quick bodge again?

A little more done this weekend, both doors leaded, hug for the last time before all the gaps were set, font and rear qtr panels leaded, bothe inner wings bare metaled, inside the door shut bare metaled, outside then filed by hand then buzzed with the air sander, finally skimmed with fine filler to takee out the imperfections, this week i will be blocking back the filler and making minor repairs to the rear inner wing, hopefully by next week this side will be finished

James you really are stomping along !!!  The trouble is that you are showing up the rest of us !!!!!

Seriously, it is so good to see such progress and doing things the right way, not the expedient way.

Good luck with it all, as Parisien says, a master class is the way forward. is it possible to put a clip on this Forum ??
