    Looking great Mike When I finished mig welding my chassis I felt a bit ‘lost’. However, my van needs a new sill so I started drilling out the spot welds this afternoon ... I’ll not be able to continue till Thursday but I can feel the anticipation mounting!

    Looking forward to seeing more progress with your build 👍

    There's always something needs welding round the house garden tools, cars I even welded the RSJ's on the house extension, good luck with the sills

    Loving the box section; good opportunity to get things right when you are starting from bare metal.

    That’s going to be a really neat solution, a great way to achieve a factory looking solution.
