Weld-a-thon

Whilst doing all the other work on the rally car, by chance I spotted some small cracks on the front wings. I guess this is the result of many year of rallying taking its toll on the shell of the car (~85 events).

Anyway this needed solving before flying over the jumps at Woodbridge, so with a few hours with the grinder, and welder the front end now feels a lot firmer than before.

Here you can see the seam welding mid process

One of the jobs on ‘The List’ is to do further seam welding on the front end, which requires the removal of the wings (not something I had time to do before Woodbridge) and then also seam welding inside the car .
