From what ive seen of your skills here, youd make a killing.

A portfolio of work, along with maybe work done for a few who'd be willing to show off your work, youll be turning people away as youve so much work on......i guarantee that.

The classic hot hatch market is almost as hot as the hatches themselves now.....everyone is going mental for them, and, finding a welder as skilled and conscientious as you is tough indeed.

Its a leap of faith granted but a man of ypur welding capability will never be short of cars to fix.

Mate, I think you've broken your table.

The wee 197 would be an absolute good to own and drive. I've heard nothing but good reports about them.

Afternoon Ben, been a while since I caught up on your progress. Great to see that you’re cracking on with it. You’ve done well in getting hold of some original chassis bits.
Danny is very much a biscuit man, he’ll work wonders for biscuits. Still trying to formulate my own master plan to kidnap him back for a few hours too
