27-02-2005 - Just recently I found some more filler, on the interior side of the left rear wheel. Welding was done in a very bad way, so I had to remove it all.

27-02-2005 - Hammer-formed a small piece to fill the hole. It's a nice concave form...

27-02-2005 - From the other side. It really is a very subtle shape. This must be my best metal forming yet... :-)

27-02-2005 - Welded into place. It looks like a mess, but in reality it isn't. Next step is to grind away the welds (to be done next week).
