My brother in the process of restoring an Austin similar to the one above,it was supposed to be a quick tidy up but ended up being a full restoration.He's been at it for a few years now and it's nearly ready......until he decides he's not happy with it and starts all over again!.

made this for a car tuning company last month,its an air chamber for a supercarger .they wanted it made out of alloy,handed me six cut pieces of alloy and said they wanted to show off all the welds,so i welded it together and as it was so small it looked stupid with all the weld showing so i ground and smoothed all the weld then polished it.thought i was doing the guy a favor and even gave him it at trade only charged him £60 and hes still not payed,so if any more work comes in from that garage you can guess what they can do with it.
