Then some filler to help the repairs blend in.

Commiserations on the hand. At least you didn't torch the car and the house. I keep a few old washing-up liquid squeeze bottles filled with water handy when welding. You can direct a concentrated jet of water on any little accidents including into tight spaces.

Am working on a welding trolley design at the moment.  It will have a little fire extinguisher and a blanket on board but "water pistol" is a great idea.

I use Isopon P38 easy sand filler & Isopon 182 zinc primer. I then use Carplan high build primer & for the top coat I use Fiat racing red from a spray / rattle can (which is a pretty good match). On areas where it needs a bit of extra protection (and are not visable) I use Hammerite bush on paint. Ideally I would like to get the bodywork resprayed professionally but my main aim is to get the shell & body panels completely rust free & all the oily bits mechanically sorted  Wink.

And now for the top coat of paint  Grin. Still loads to do but it feels like I'm getting there, slowly but surely  Wink.

Next job was the tailgate. The original was so badly corroded that I pretty much folded it up & put it in the bin. The replacement was almost factory fresh by comparison & just needed attention to 4 small areas as shown in these pics.

you don't show the patches seam welded. Do you just spot weld then fill and paint or is seam welding taken as read?

All the structural areas have been seam welded but repairs to body panels are spot welded which keeps the distortion to a minimum.

I went to the LMC AGM today as it's been about 6 or 7 years since the last time I attended & had a most enjoyable afternoon  Smiley. Had a good chat with Rich Carr then had a good look round at all the Lancias with Ben. Weather was hot & sunny which always helps  Cool. Got chatting to a fellow Delta fan Andy who has a HF turbo, Prisma & 1.3 LX (lucky fella!). Also had a little catch up with Brian Hinton & his 3 dogs. I was impressed with the quality of the cars on show but it did feel like the quantity was down since I last attended. It was great to see 2 stratos' though with one being a works safari & the other an exellent replica. My favourite Lancia of the day was a cracking Delta HF 4wd  Grin. You don't see these models very often & this one was in amazing condition. The owner had owned it from new then sold it after 3 years, he regretted selling so much that his wife bought it (when she saw it for sale in a local garage) & gave to him as a present on his birthday! What a wife!

Here's a repair that I've done on the rear drivers side door a little while ago. It doesn't look to bad but still took quite a bit of time to make the repair inner & outer sections. Once I was happy with the shape it was time to get the MIG welder out.  Wink
