    Dug the bulkhead out of the shed where it's resided for the last few years :oops:

    Quite a lot of surface rust in it but it cleans up ok with the wire brush

    20200309_123905.jpg

    Needs some repair panels around the vents :(

    Also uncovered the engine from it's slumber

    Twas time to get the angle grinder out today and get noisy.

    Lots of offering up and double checking

    20200317_130156.jpg

    Then after lots of cutting disks had got chewed through it was time to tack it on

    20200317_155818.jpg

    A bit of grinding later

    20200317_181740.jpg

    My welding mask packed up halfway through and just as I was working on the other side I dropped the angle grinder and bust it:(
    Not good as I'd only just got a new welding mask as my other one had packed up

    Even plugged some screw holes in the dash panel
