I am sorry to have to inform you that I am not Macho Man enough to preside over that scene of ultimate gaiety.
Seems like you may have bitten some bad wind lately.

Don't judge the welding on this steering column support it was tacked and bodge together to see if I got the measurements right , seems to be ok so I will build a better part

Are you using 5" tyres?  If so, what are they and from where?

So I'm still alive after not being online for any updates in ages , my workshops being knocked down for a development of houses , the garage at home can't be used for building cars because the misses gets the hump with the sparks and fibreglass "stinks" apparently , the welder went bang but I was lucky enough it's coming up to my 30th and good old dad has got me a shinny new one, moving in to a workshop in two weeks so I can start again , couple of boring pictures to add but why not, me having my old Mercedes 207d moved which I'm playing with the idea of making it into a workshop just for my peel haha , new welder which is excellent

Few updates, I've been pretty rubbish at working on the peel for a few weeks , it's been my 30th birthday and my girlfriend asked me what I wanted to do for it so I said " to be left alone in the workshop for a whole weekend with no moaning " and I got away with it !

I've finished off the top part of the steering bracket , lowered and shaped the seat to fit a person in , put some indicators and tail lights in , window rubbers , door hinges ( although is don't like how they fit ) just trying to make it look half descent for a car show this Sunday

Would that be the Enfield pageant by any chance?  If so we will meet at last.
