    ...I do my best! And I'm learning every day more! Finally starting body work on Baron. I already had very VERY old mig welding machine but it still working ok and now I also have a tig welder beside that. What I can say about tig welding...I need practice, a lot! Some pictures of progress.. 20200301_195821.jpg 20200321_153707.jpg 20200315_192739.jpg 20200328_134648.jpg 20200404_144807.jpg 20200410_164038.jpg 20200411_194511.jpg 20200411_194456.jpg 20200411_195412.jpg 20200411_195133.jpg

    Right side ready for welding, first some sandblasting and zinc paint for back side. Windshield molding fits somehow alright, maybe little bondo here and there for perfect fit.
    Regards and be safe out there,
