This came in today 500 SEC bearing in mind I only repair and paint coaches now,used to do vintage and classic cars,friend of my boss could I just spot repair?
I said no as every panel has scab,chips,dent or scratches,I said it would have to be everything but roof.
But considering it is 33 years old it’s not bad outside but inside could do with a lot of TLC

I know that’s why I said it would be correct if it was not totally wrong

I am doing the bodywork,I do it for a living albeit coaches nowadays and not many cars,although I am a coach builder by trade building vintage car bodies using aluminium.
I still keep my hand in making new panels for coaches and gas welding aluminium.

and gas welding aluminium.


That's a rare talent. I once tried it as an apprentice after our instructor showed us. My attempt ended up as a melted pool on the bench :D ..... I'm much better with TIG :)

I’ve watched the original guys at Orange cycles welding Alloy frames, a skill indeed!
