Saturday March 26, 2011 Skin Pins Are Awesome

Today I finally welded on the new inner wing!

First of all, I ended up deciding the best treatment for the boxed in bits would be POR15.


Final clamp up before welding. Invested in some skin pins, which made life much easier!


Lots of plug welds.


Panel: IN! It took me all day to get this far, so I'll finish the grinding tomorrow.


Really glad this bit is fitted at last. Hopefully now I know a bit more about what I'm doing, the other side will be more straight-forward. :)

Now for something a bit more exciting - for those people who are wondering what I'm going to do with this car, I got a bit inspired this week looking at these classic skylines... I really like the way this car has a few modern sports touches like the rays wheels and the decals, but its still an awesome piece of history, and doesn't look 'molested'. I'm aiming for something like that, I think. :)
