Thanks for the comment but i'm no "master" to teach the class as such, my dad runs rings around me with "old school" techniques i'm still learning!!!  Roll Eyes i dont see much point in cutting corners as it only falls appart at a later date and i dont want to do it all again!! its all a learning curve for me and keep finding new techniques as i get more practice, being a panel beater for 10 yrs or panel fitter really as i dont class myself as skilled as a proper panel beater has given me a head start ith ths kind of work however the skills that i have developed i enjoy and wish i could do more than i'm cappable of now, hopefully with time i'll learn more  Grin

more progress made, rear inner arch on the o/s welded up and into filler, complete o/s blocked back and high spots planished ( this took me nearly a full day!) not because it was bad mostly to use a thin skim of filler rather than having it 5mm thick in places, doors fit perfectly now and open and shut with the typical lancia clunk, girlfriend has gone to visit her brother in spain for a week so plenty of late nights ahead and a long weekend, hopefully starting on the n/s sill tonight with a view to having it all welded up by the end of the weekend,

Should be somewhere near but as its the augustas 80th there will be a convoy of 2 coming from north wales, we decided that if we both went in augustas we wouldn't hold each other up  Cheesy + they are mine and my dads personal favourites

Well , i seem to have had a productive afternoon/evening, started at 1.30pm this afternoon after work, trial fitted the outer sill, tacked into place then set abot making the ends of the sill and inner wing, most is tacked or welded into place now so hopefully will be finished later on this morning (after i've been to bed!!!!)

The forum should club together and send you your favourite Cuba cigar once a month for the shear effort put in and brilliance of your restoration!

This is why i dont complain about her going away !!!, on my lunch break at the moment but i've been at it since 9.30 this morning, not much progress to look at as i've been finishing off where panels were just tacked into place, its now next door again on the ramp and i'm welding up the rear inner sills etc, taking photo's and if enough progress is made i'll post them up later
