This week I have been back at it, cutting rust out of these doors. I am quite happy with how the repairs are coming along, but it is so time consuming.

This week I finally finish repairing all of the rust damage on my doors. Getting there slowly.

Thanks mate. In some ways it is slow going, but with the pressure of weekly videos, it doesn't sit forgotten in the back of the shed.

Hi Jeff

Just started watching your series..
Great work and inspiring.

With the time lapse it's difficult to see how much time you leave between welds..
I know the mig welds are tough but maybe try giving it a few taps with a small hammer to release the tension in the metal in between each weld..

Thanks
John

What I have found now, is I don't tend to get much warping with the welding itself. There was more that came through the grinding. Now I have recently switched from hard grinding discs to coarse flap discs it seems to be much better. It still grinds back the weld quickly, but it seems to put less heat into the panel.

This week I gave paint stripper another go, and it works much better if it there are not 20 layers of paint and bog. The whole car is almost rust free now, just a couple of small bits to go.
