Re: Matilda's Resurrection

One last thing to leave me with a bare shell - how do you remove the front headlining. I've reads the bits that mention the wire and attaching the string and I've found the ends with the remains of bits of string but I'm a bit lost - Help! Please.

Re: Matilda's Resurrection

Thanks Don, I did contact them with a sensible offer but they weren't interested and subsequently received no bids. I'm awaiting delivery of a used one at a very decent price.

Re: Matilda's Resurrection

I have a 'rotisserie' type roll over jig as I don't like the idea of doing a lot of welding underneath the car. I had intended to keep the woodwork in place to give some sort of strength to the backend whilst I did all of the work from the B-post forward but bearing in mind the rotten condition of t...

Re: Matilda's Resurrection

It was well hidden with a big dollop of cataloy. Trying to find a donor is a great idea - thanks

Re: Matilda's Resurrection

When I originally looked for a project I nearly walked away from this one - I'm beginning to think my instinct was correct. This is the top end of the B-post. How in heaven's name do you repair that?

Re: Plasma Cutter

I decided to bite the bullet and buy one. Tiny little thing - fantastic works brilliantly and cuts through thin sheet steel like a knife through butter including rusty painted bodywork. Cheaper than a gas axe with none of the cylinder rental/purchase costs. Don't know how long it will last or how go...

Matilda's Resurrection

Just completed converting Matilda 2 (I like to keep the same name. Named after the House Robot on Robot Wars) from a pile of bits all of which were attached to each other into a pile of bits none of which are attached to anything. I'll post some pics on the way of what will be a long, long bare-shel...

'New' Traveller

Started stripping my new toy today. Bodge, upon bodge, upon bodge and rust everywhere. For example what I thought was a neat row of spot welds is in fact a row of self tappers keeping in place a patch on the floor. Sills repaired with plate and some pretty poor quality gas welding everywhere. Rotten...
