    Well Ive had no interest in the old beast so Ive advertised my Bike and my boat and than I might just have to bring beasty back to life myself. Ive spent today taking out some rot in the floor , taking out spot welds, and pealing up the tin, the under chasis is in great nick,

    Looking good so far :D

    How long did it take to cut out and weld in what you have done so far in your pics?

    and if you was to take it to a welder what would be the ball park figure for the work you have already done do you think it would be

    Ive spent probably 3 full days on her ,, as a figure to replace the metal sill and jacking points with replacement panels. The welding part is only several hours. The aliigning of the panel and fitment preporation is where the time is. Most panel shops would be at least $80 an hour . Im enjoying seeing things get better , off with the old and on with the new. Im just building Zelly to be a Cruiser, back seat a bed seat, and maybe a kitchen . Some nice mags, have got them already, and some chrome / stainless bumpers.

    Thats in August , If I worked on Zelly full time that possibly would be achievable, but I cant do that with work and kids , But Zelly will start doing the rounds when she gets her self sorted out. Cheers Glen :cool:
