Missing the point

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.
Henry David Thoreau

I have long been distracted by the doubled-up and anachronistic jack points under the centre of this Kombi. They are an eyesore and they simply have to go. They were part of the whole joining-up process where I cut the two donor buses alongside the reinforced areas on their circumferences and then joined the two halves by welding those areas of strength together.




I got the angle grinder out and hacked 'em off - simples! Unfortunately this left a rectangular hole in the underside of the reinforced crossmember under the bus. Two square panels cut from scrap and neatly MiG welded in by the friendly neighbour and the job's done.



Isn't that lovely? Small job but it's a big improvement to my eye :)


Thanks for the visit, come back soon,
CooP
