    No, I bought the outer one, although I'll be needing another as the other side is buggered as well.

    I fear I'd make a perfectly flat panel look like someone tried to eat it. I'll make one up without the X. I'll leave the skilled stuff to you guys!!

    I'll have a go and post it on here for you to chuckle at. I envisage a picture of a warped piece of steel. Besides, if it was that easy, the ones online would have it on them.

    Not a huge amount of progress this week. However I bought a snazzy welder and with some very patient advice from a friend I think it's now set up right. Its much nicer to use. Then I ran out of gas
    Before I put the final bed corner in, the inner valance and surrounding panels need replacing. Talk about repairs over repairs. So I've made these and will fit them and the bed corner once my gas arrives. My 9L bottle isn't lasting very long.

    You know which one it is you penis. You're the one who told me how to get the thing working. Besides, I'm now going down to the garage so that you can have some more welder porn.
    But it is much nicer to use than my old beast.

    Some progress, a bit of time to get used to my new welder.
    I was correctly advised to spend more time practicing my welding.
    I did a bit but my inexperience has the better of me. I could have spent the morning practicing, but I just had to get onto the caddy.

    I've had to re-weld all of this work as i was using too much wire and too little power.

    Now I'm in chassis territory and I'm scared.
    I'll spend a lot of time drinking coffee and scratching my chin.
