tell me this, did ya make all the roof yourself??
or use some of the old one, or got it made?
ill take my hat off to you hi, a well done job.Used the old one, got a sheet of 2mm steel. Sat it on the old one and cut out the basic shape.
Then cut off the lips and hinges off the old one and cut out the rust, then welded on the cut out plate and welded a lip for the front hatch and hinges and a lip for the sunroof.
The old sunroof was fecked and wouldnt have suited with the equipment we had to do the lips so made one and welded the centre of the old one to it..worked out well and saved 380
The original front hatch is used but is bolted down instead of being hinged like it was originally.
Finally cut out all the rust out of the sides and plated it..then sand blasted the lot.
as a man once said to me, " paint is only colour hi ", its whats under it that counts.Its hard to know done it on a bit of the back end allright, Wire brushed it and wiped it down with panel wipe wipe first. Id imagine its a big help to use good paint with a hardener aswell.
No way is perfect for that..but its not a big job to that to the back end every few years if it starts flaking off.
Dunno if there's any sheep men on here but bought 2 of these lleyn''s to try this year in place of 2 cheviot rams
Any one have them? They seem a bit quieter so far than than the cheviots...they are just mental
Also this boy won a few prizes this year.
