Its mig. Its a real nice welder to use, never had any trouble with it. Those repairs took me a week though so i was taking my time lol

 

Ha, i'd sell the van before i sell those wheels!

 

 

Not seen this around town, looks great!

 

Nice wheels, who widened them for you?  

 

Nice job on the repairs also!

 

Cheers! I just use it to potter around the hutt. I'm too afraid to take it on the motorway ha

 

I purchased wheels already widened. Looks to have been done a long time ago. The centres were punched out and welded into new 7inch bands so technically no widening? Who ever did it, did a real nice job though.

Thanks man. Yeah I saw the ones in your thread, must have been running 175/50s? They suit the mk1 very nicely.

 

I'm using the Neweld Turbo 220 mig welder. Can't find any info or pictures sorry. I'll take one tomorrow.

You've been busy! Light at the end of the tunnel now I hope.

Rust free instead of free rust?

After the drivers rear side I don't plan on cutting into it again. I've done the big big jobs, that's good enough for me. So much for a 'I'll only get it up to a warrantable standard' attitude.

Haha cheers Beav. This is what happens when I procrastinate about getting an office job. Hopefully it'll be at the next monthly meet.
