Engineering Tech A Q & A Forum devoted to Engineering Issues that don't necessarily fall into Aircooled or Watercooled Tech. Got a problem? Or an engineering question? Even a buildings or property engineering question? Then ask in here. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

I am very pleased to report that (Thanks to Kank (BDP) lending me a hydraulic ram) I have gotten the bodywork very straight and untwisted.

My latest challenge, having never seen one before, is using an English Wheel to make repair panels.

This is one - the engine cover I finished yesterday . . . . . . .
looks ace, the benefit of restoring military vehicles is that they don't have to be absolutely mm perfect( not saying you cant ), but ive seen what you have to deal with so I think its amazing to get it resembling a vehicle never mind a half decent one
