I hope Chrisg is taking notes.

Looks like its a piece of 4x2 on his christmas list.





I'm sure I've got one, just don't know where I've put it

It actually looks like he's welding that damp looking area at the bottom of the tank.

i bet that the welding kit is connected via a set of jump leads to a lamp post or pylon!! Do you think he's got an RCB on that?

I was working late one night and an apprentice was welding up his mums car, a Talbot Horizon. It had a moderate sized hole in the boot floor, I advised him to cut the hole out completely and clean up the edges. I went back into the office to do some invoicing and about an hour later went out to see how he was doing. He had cut out the hole in the floor to about 8" x 12" and found another hole in the secong skin of the floor, and had cut out a section about 4" x 4" and welded in a joddled plate. He was just making up the second plate to finish the job.

Horizons do not have a double skinned boot floor, he had just welded up a hole in the top of the fuel tank!

Ignorance is bliss.

Nowt wrong with that!

I've got some crutches he can borrow if he wants.

Seriously, I thought my axle stands and stuff were in place, they wern't.

CHECK EVERYTHING before you get under a car, I was lucky, just a broken pelvis and internal bruising. If I'd have been working under anything heavier than the Locost I'd have been sending you this message via a medium.

Think on

Cheers

Chris





Note to all: I really don't know when to leave well alone. I tried to get clever with the mods, then when they gave me a lifeline to see the error of my ways, I tried to incite more trouble via u2u. So now I'm banned, never to return again. They should have done it years ago!
