Re: New Purchase!!

I cut a rounded 90 degree corner out of a sheet of MDF as an anvil to bash the steel over. I can't find the pic of the Minor floor I did but I used the same technique to make a dashboard for a vintage Austin.

Re: Identification of cylinder heads

Re: Alloy Kick panels

Still got the original alloy plates on HFH200. They appear to be an ALCLAD material, possibly 2024 grade alloy. This is a structural alloy sheet that can be formed and has a pure aluminium coating applied to act as a sacrificial surface. If it gets scratched (or over-polished) then the surface coati...
