Yea I'm having to play as I go. The setting off the car are different to on the car. Had to drop the power setting to its lowest as it was blowing thro the pan too easy. Also finding it a bit difficult with the welding mask as isn't always darkening so at times I really can't see all that well. Hopefully now that I have cut holes for the breathing mask it'll behave itself as sits on me face better now.

Default Floor pan all welded!!!

YAY!!! I have just finished welding in my floorpan patches. Pretty chuffed with it. Welds may look a bit patchy but penetration is good and was difficult welding the 2 different thickness metals together without blowing thro the original pan metal. I got better as I went along

So battery tray


and passenger pan


Now comes the grinding and will probably need to fix a few pin holes were I'd missed but want to split the pan so I have better access. Just need some wood for tresles now. Hmm, Bunnings me thinks, Aussie B&Q

Looking good dude

I'm sure it'll be fine after a bit of grinding and some paint.

Thanks dude Think I'll be taking the pan round to my in-laws as I don't think the neighbours/body corporate are going to appreciate the amount of grinding I have to do especially as I now need to bare metal it for painting

Yep, managing to get things done. Hoping to get started on the IRS conversion next but it's all about money now. Have to rent the jigs then buy the paint, so I shall be whoring myself for the next week or so
Jobs fine. rather different from the last as is way more laid back yet being government think it may be frustrating at times too. We shall see but good so far

Default The bottom fell off it!!!!

only kidding. The pan is now mainly seperated from the body.




Just need a tresle for the rear so I can slide the pan out then ship it round to the in-laws for some extra room
