    Luckily for me I have another week or 2 finishing off the welding, so I can begin to make sense of the products, which ones to buy and how to apply them.

    But I've done some, not too shit, welding. I'm quietly chuffed!

    I felt I had gotten my welding up to standard. So I've started stitching the cross members, rails and mounts.

    Thanks, it won't be a patch on your fine wagon, but I'll be equally as proud when it's finished.

    Here's a question which may result in me being exposed as the retard that I am.
    I'm trying to stitch weld my chassis rails to the inner panel which is forward of the spring turrets. Normally it would be spot welded but this isn't possible.
    What happens is that I get rained on with huge blobs, one landed on my airline and caused me to nearly prolapse as the line burst next to me.
    My question is: can I leave it, get everything else done, pop it back on the rotisserie and weld it when it's upside down?

    i had to do this with the rear panel and leaf spring mounts, i stitch welded a few spots then put it on the rotisserie but my chassis rails were already attached of course.
    as long as it's solid it should be ok, but other thing is, try turning the amps up and wire speed up, and doing quick tacks, will penetrate metal faster and hopefully and not rain down on you! ( you can always do a few big ugly welds and grind them down once on rotisserie and then just go over them again once it's all solid)

    Now that makes sense to me. Thanks. I'll be giving that a go.

    Despite my lack of update I am still beavering away, albeit slowly. I have fitted all 4 bed corners but one is really shot to bits and will have to be replaced with a piece of flat sheet metal
    However, I am nearly ready to mount it back onto the rotisserie, which will be a moment of success for me.
    I'm going to replace the dodgy bed corner and fit an outer valance before the rotisserie otherwise I fear there will be trouble due to having fuck all strength in the rear corner.
    I'd better get shopping at my favourite caddy stockist then!!!!
