First Weld In Place

Yes tonight for the first time I have added some nice shiny new metal to my MG Midget. 
Damaged Area

So from this photo above you can see the extent of the damage to the wheel arch viewing from the inner sill. The complicated part of this is that there are so many panels coming together at this point.


Support Repair
This is the rusted support that connects the wheel arch in the background of the top picture to the inner section closest to you.


So I needed to make up a new section as shown above. (I'll have to upload a photo of this new part later) 

But you can hopefully get an idea how these parts fit together from this photo.

But before that I had to make up a small repair which you can seen partly welded in below.
First Weld!

I will tidy this up during my next session. But got it straight and in place which was my main concern. The welder was a little problematic. I really do need to work out how I can get it to be more consistent. Would help me enormously!
