Well, since the last update I've been on the couch for a week with the 'flu, which really

slowed down progress. Lost a few good days of time I could have used to bring the project

even further forward. This means that since the last update, I've really only had 2 days

to spend in the workshop, but progress has been made! The rear of the front arch is now

closed, and just needs a little spot welding on the inside of the edge. The rear arch

conversion is almost completed, again just some spot welding to finish it up. This arch

came out much better than the first, both cosmetically and structurally. Almost makes me

want to go back and redo almost all the work I did last year (note: almost, I want this car

on the road this summer!). Nest up will be the rear valance. This isn't as bad as the one

on the other side, but it's still pretty bad. Reckon it will take an evening or two to have

it done. Also need to do the lower arch areas, where I basically have nothing but the

freestyle work I did on the other side to go by. After that it will be back to the front

arch for some repair bits, then it's facecutting time again!

As a special bonus this time, as so many of my faithful readers have been requesting them

(well, not really, but I had to work it in somehow...), there are a couple of snaps of a lardy chap

in Jaguar coveralls. The chap in question is Mr. Rust, wreaker of havoc, cutter of rusty

metal, and welder of meagre talent.
