    Default 1961 Spit screen Kombi

    Hi everyone,

    i came accross this forum on a mission to learn about a lathe I recently purchased.
    As part of a restoration build of my 61 VW panel van, I found myself in extremely new waters, and have been learning slowly about metal shaping, welding and repairing the un reparable.

    I recently got back into the project and thought I would share my new approach.

    cheers,

    joe

    Hi Joe. I will be watching your progress with interest. I know how one's commitment to a project comes and goes over time.

    Hopefully work will be starting on my new shed within the month and then it's back into some of my neglected projects.

    John
