hello, here is the result of the work of this weekend.
I cut and form metal sheets, I must finish the other metal sheets that are thicker.
I'll start with the least damaged side to have a model for the other side.SAM_2184.JPGSAM_2185.JPGSAM_2186.JPGSAM_2187.JPGSAM_2188.JPGSAM_2189.JPGSAM_2190.JPGSAM_2191.JPGSAM_2192.JPGSAM_2193.JPGSAM_2194.JPGSAM_2195.JPGSAM_2196.JPGSAM_2197.JPGSAM_2199.JPGSAM_2200.JPGSAM_2201.JPGSAM_2203.JPGSAM_2204.JPGSAM_2205.JPGSAM_2206.JPGSAM_2207.JPGSAM_2208.JPGSAM_2209.JPGSAM_2210.JPGSAM_2211.JPGSAM_2212.JPGSAM_2213.JPG

Good evening, here is some news of this weekend.
I finished a bracket, the piece was more difficult to make than the others because of the thickness (2.5 mm).
I will start the next weekend

Amazing, simply amazing. Even more so when you look at the tools that you're using.

Sure wish I had your abilities!

Doing this work must give you great satisfaction. :)

I would imagine locating a piece like that in good condition in your country would be like finding a needle in a hay stack and given the cost (and time) to find one here, you have likely saved by doing this yourself.

Looking forward to your continued progress.

Hello, thank you dei ;).
Yes indeed to find this piece in France would be very difficult.
Then with some information and research there is very little of this model of the same year in France.
And as his I learn to work metal :).

 Merry Christmas to you as well. I looked through your thread and have caught up with your recent work. Great looking progress. That is/was a nasty looking piece of rust in the mount on that front section. Keep up the good work!

Good evening and Happy New Year!
Here is a picture of the restoration of the buick, and a photo of the peugeot 205 gti (1984) of my brother :)
I almost finished this piece, I still have parts and paint solders to do.
I also use "anti-gravity" to protect the metal.
Normally I finished this piece this week and.SAM_2729.JPGSAM_2730.JPGSAM_2731.JPGSAM_2739.JPGSAM_2740.JPGSAM_2741.JPGSAM_2742.JPGSAM_2743.JPGSAM_2750.JPGSAM_2751.JPGSAM_2752.JPGSAM_2753.JPGSAM_2754.JPGSAM_2755.JPGSAM_2756.JPGSAM_2757.JPGSAM_2767.JPGSAM_2768.JPGSAM_2772.JPGSAM_2773.JPGSAM_2777.JPGSAM_2779.JPGSAM_2780.JPGSAM_2782.JPGSAM_2783.JPGSAM_2784.JPGSAM_2785.JPG
