Inner wing repairs

Autumn 2005

Part of the inner wing was also badly eaten away, so I fabricated replacement parts (welding them in 2006). First I worked out what needed to be replaced, then modelled it in cardboard to make a pattern, cut the steel and then shaped it.

I have done quite a lot on it since, now that I have welding kit, including welding a patch which fills that dark triangle you can see an inch or so away from the clamp. Here you can see it in place.
