Indeed very nice work and I admire your drive.
Looking at the pics of your door repair I see that there's not a continuos weld, will that be sealer on the back and filler on the front to seal it all in? - Am I spending too much time trying to weld every part of a joint?
Cheers

yes I weld 10mm apart then use aluminum filler(water resistant) and seam seal on inside, its not structural so no need to seam weld but they have to be close or you will get cracking in the filler over a period of time,

That has come quite a way from how it was before, shame about the paint reacting.
