    Not so much the welding on my TD5 as the bloody leaky sunroof syndrome .. just when I think I've solved it, I go out, all confident, not wearing my waterproofs, and get a drenching on the first corner I come to .. GAH ..

    How did you all go about learning to weld? It's a skill i really need to pick up (just take a look at the state of the van) but no idea where to start? DO i just buy a welder and get cracking? What kind do i need? :-S

    Thats pretty much what I did.... bit of old scrap metal to practice on.
    I spent £160 on a kit from ebay, it's sufficient for what I do.
    There are plenty of online tutorials, I looked at some MIG ones and it helped me improve my technique. It's far from perfect, but it gets me by.

    Ha, the time passed...

    I no longer own my P reg Astra...some twunt smacked it up the rear and twisted the chassis. Much missed car.

    I now own an M reg MK3 PH1/PH2 Mybrid with a 1.4MPi engine and autobox, and an X reg MK4 1.6MPi Autobox equipped Astra. The X is a 5 door and my daily driver, a lowly 8 valver Club class, but it's plenty nippy. The M is a 3 door, with more issues than Readers Digest, and is a project.

    What kind of welder did you get MIG? do you need gas bottles/where do you get them from?

    It was a Wolf MIG 135a, came with Gas, wire, torch tips, mask (rubbish) and a few other bits.
    I got a fresh mask as the one in the kit was horrendous. It uses disposable gas bottles - these can be got from ebay or even halfords. I use co2/argon mix now as it gives a better weld.
