    Dammit. Now I need an England-USA English translator. That's not quite what we call "engineering" here in the states....

    Thanks for a chuckle.

      Hmmm. That was me 20 years ago before I discovered Peter's DVD's.

      Not pretty but it is more functional than chicken wire, newspaper and filler.

          Will ask the Younger members at work to highlight this tragic workmanship.

        God it’s bad isn’t it... l have a 1979 AA work shop manual which has a Jaguar MK 2 featured , then they go on to advice you to patch up your Sill Panel (Rocker) with Chicken Wire .... but the best thing is they mentioned it should be galvanised steel for better rust protection.....πŸ‘Œ

        Will take a Pic.

        Ferrari 365GTC in today for a pair of Door skin and some previous poor repairs to the Front End.... great start to the year , then we have been asked to make a removable roof or a Jaguar E. Type.

            A lot better workmanship than the pop riveted panels I put on my Chevelle at 18 years of age. But hey, aluminum is soft, why not use that?
            It sure took a lot of Bondo to cover the rivet heads.

              I think there should be a special award for those of us that started with bondo/bog and have been honest enough to admit to it. 🀣🀣

              Actually I was looking at my Wolseley 680 recently and the rust repairs I did to it with MIG and steel in 1984, really need to be removed and done again. πŸ˜‘

              Oh the humiliation!

                    OK, I'll play. I got my truck in 98 and decided to do my first bondo work. Bought some bondo, sandpaper and a case of beer. Didn't take long before I decided to quit the bondo effort and just buy more beer. 20+ yrs later, it looks like this in my driveway-
